The automotive giant assures that despite the discontent of customers, the cars will be delivered. As proof of this, Ford ensures that the processes of certification and conducting the necessary tests are almost complete.
Up to now, 50 GT cars have been delivered, and it is expected at a later stage every day that the factory will go out on a ready-made GT. It is also expected that a three-month deadline will be announced shortly, during which all GT orders will be executed.
