The all-new Ford GT is coming to the Philippines!

In January 2015 at the North American International Auto Show, Ford revealed the all-new Ford GT, nine years after it ceased to produce the original GT in 2006. Ford's unveiling of the all-new GT took everyone by surprise since the American carmaker never let on that it was developing a successor to its short-lived supercar. Locally, the Ford GT was only available through grey market importers as Ford Philippines never officially offered it. Well, that's no longer the case for the all-new Ford GT as the carmaker has confirmed that it is indeed making it available to its customers in the Philippines.

The news was revealed on TimeAttackManila.com, after the site saw the car listed under the "Performance Cars" category together with the Ford Mustang in Ford Philippines' website, Ford.com.ph. TimeAttackManila.com then got in touch with Ford Philippines' assistant vice president for communications Joseph Ayllon who confirmed that the Ford GT "will be offered in the Philippine market," with information on the car's pricing and other important details to be disclosed "closer to the launch."

As to when that may be, it could be happening very, very soon as Ford is now advising interested customers on the supercar's section to "check back in February for application details."

Would it be too much to hope for Ford Philippines to make available a test drive unit of the all-new Ford GT?
