Michigan produces the last Ford GT

The last Ford GT ever to be produced rolled out of the Troy, Michigan factory recently. The final assembly of the GT was completed at this plant. Fittingly, the last Ford GT is the classic red with white stripes that we’ve all come to know and love.

In some ways, this event is very significant. With the retirement of the Ford GT, Ford’s performance crown is passed down to the Mustang Shelby GT500. While the Shelby won’t perform at quite the same level as the GT, it does cost over $100,000 less, so I feel as though that’s a good tradeoff. While the $43,000+ Shelby is still out of reach for most regular people, it’s still within reach for many more than could afford the limited production Ford GT supercar. Just 4038 of these amazing cars were produced. Read more at Autoblog.
