The Ford GT will be built in Ontario, Canada, by Multimatic Motorsports, a longtime partner in Ford Motor Co.’s racing programs.
The GT, a 600-hp supercar unveiled in Detroit last month, is scheduled to go into production next year. Analysts have said they expect Ford to build only a few hundred GTs a year and charge more than $200,000 for the car, which is made largely of carbon fiber and aluminum.
Ford confirmed its production plans for the GT on Thursday at the Toronto auto show, near Multimatic’s headquarters in Markham, a spokeswoman said.
Speaking at the show, Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of the Americas, said the automaker will benefit from Multimatic’s experience in working with carbon fiber.
He noted that Ford has worked with Multimatic for 30 years. The Canadian company has 12 manufacturing facilities in five countries: Canada, the U.S., Mexico, England and China.
