    Sort of related to this thread:
    Did anyone notice that Exotic Racing in Las Vegas is advertising they have 2020 GT500’s available to drive on track? $254 for 5 laps
    Their system shows you can reserve them today...

    I’m guessing they were able to obtain a few of those press cars from the Vegas event.
    For those that need a fix! :sunglasses:

    First of all it's not the First GT500 delivered the first one was limited edition green one. The second one I know was an Oxford white that was flying on instagram past week. I guess by chance. You obviously don't follow youtube car scene which is good for your. TJHunt called all Toyota dealers in California to get a hold on a new Supra and it only took him a week did his reputation helped get one sure but did it payed ADM for the privilege also sure. I admire the system and snoopy49 dedication to track the cars and I love reading the production thread. But just because someone was smarter/more persistent and did something that nobody did. Doesn't mean he had to get this amount of hate. That was my point. I follow the GT500 for a long time and watching Speed Phenom content is the only way I can at least see what the user experience is.

    I read most of the thread - and I might have missed it - does anyone know approximately have actually been delivered into dealer / customer hands? I'm betting there are plenty of future GT500 owners who aren't involved with forums or social media.

    Hmmm when I was in Vegas (just a week before the event...talk about bad timing,..) I saw this add at the mall(hotel) on the strip. Nice cars on the list but I was amazed they did not have a GT350 but had a Mustang GT. guess now the have the GT500 lol.

    Maybe if I get back there for something I'll try to go.

    I have driven a few cars with them (its a quality operation). One thing they will tell you is that all of their cars are either automatics or DCTs. They don’t trust people to be able to shift! Hence, no GT350’s...

    Dealer ordered car, in the name.of the owner, a dealership that routinely slaps +$10k on raptors and 350s.. close to the plant, orders a few days before production began on all of them, is built and sold to a youtube kid with a following, kid known to lie, supposedly at $2500 over msrp ( probably forgot to add a 0). And we're supposed to think it that was luck of the draw?

    I hope .you people either can't or at least done reproducing.

    Exactly. Kid called around the whole country and paid ADM to get this one. Dealer did what dealers do best, make money. It's called capitalism folks. ADM is for fools. Let the early adopters pay ADM and beta test the car for Ford and then buy a 2021, 2022, 2023 model year for under MSRP with all the kinks worked out.

    Yeah smart move on his part. But his subscriber base and views are pretty low, unless he gets sponsored he probably does not even make enough on Youtube to cover insurance, gas, mods, and track items like tires and oil.

    I can't imagine his insurance cost in California for his cars, but likely as much or more than my car payment on my 350.
