* Ford adds a 2005 Ford GT to the winner's prize package at the Ford
Championship at Doral March 4-7.
* America's Supercar(SM) becomes the most valuable automobile prize in
the history of the PGA TOUR.
MIAMI, Feb. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- When his last putt drops in the cup
at the Ford Championship at Doral next month, the winner will claim not only a
share of the $5 million in tournament prize money but also the keys to one of
the hottest properties in the automobile world -- America's Supercar(SM), the
2005 Ford GT.
Ford announced today that the winner's prize package at Doral will now
include the all-new Ford GT, a car that will be the most exclusive Ford
product ever. Priced just under $140,000, the Ford GT supercar will be the
most valuable automobile prize in the history of the PGA TOUR.
But the sticker price does not fully reflect the exclusivity of the Ford
GT. Demand for the new supercar is expected to far outpace this year's build
that will be limited to several hundred units.
"Winning the tournament is the only sure way to get a new Ford GT," said
Ford Division President Steve Lyons. "We can't possibly satisfy the demand
for this car in the first year of a short two model year run. So it's not
just that we've added a $140,000 car to the prize winnings -- we've added a
car that will be almost impossible for most people to buy."
The supercar's unique desirability was underscored last summer at the
Christie's Auction of Exceptional Motor Cars at Pebble Beach (Calif.), where
one of the first production Ford GTs was sold for $500,000 plus auction fees,
with net proceeds going to charity.
"A prize of the magnitude of the Ford GT supercar is unprecedented on the
PGA TOUR and helps bring even higher levels of attention to a tournament that
is already a very popular event with the players," said Tom Neville,
tournament director, Ford Championship at Doral.
