And a dedicated trailer. And a dedicated technician.
An internal document obtained by website All Ford Mustangs detailed the requirements Ford will place on GT service centers, including the need for a dedicated clean room in which to work on the car.
Dedicated service technicians will be trained by Multimatic - the Canadian company that will build the GT - but will only be allowed to carry out certain jobs. Basic service and repair work will be done in house, but anything more involved will require help from a Multimatic technician, over the phone or as a "Fly-in Doctor." For major work, the car will simply be sent back to the factory.
Dealers will also need a specified trailer for collections and deliveries, a specified set of dolly wheels for putting the car on a lift, and a bespoke transmission jack. Add in the technician's training, and dealers could face a bill totalling $50,000 (approximately $65,000 CAD).
The document even goes into detail about how GT owners should be handled - a dedicated service manager must be on hand at all times - and how the car should be treated while on-site. It should never be left outside, should always covered when no work is being done, should only driven by the dedicated technician or service manager, and so on.
Most of the costs will eventually be passed onto GT owners, of course. But considering the car is expected to cost $400,000 USD, it's a fair bet they can afford to spend a bit extra on servicing.
