Get a Free Ford GT Snap Kit by Visiting the Detroit Auto Show
You might not be able to afford a Ford GT, but you can get a free snap kit just by heading to the 2016 Detroit Auto Show.
The American automaker is giving “kids” a free, limited-edition, build-it-yourself Ford GT snap kit at its booth, but we’re going to guess that if you beg hard enough, they’ll give them to adults as well. Developed by Revell as an “af-Ford-able” GT, the snap kits will also go on sale online and at select retailers starting in April if you aren’t able to make your way to Detroit early next month.
The limited-edition snap kit offered at Detroit will include 14 pieces for easy assembly in just a few minutes and features a unique auto show stamp on the bottom to signify the special edition.

The retail model will be a bit different, priced at $14.99 and will be more detailed with 28 pieces, taking 10 to 15 minutes to build. Ford has collaborated with Revell to build snap kits for auto shows and retail sale since 2013 and this will be the third product following the Mustang and Raptor.
“Our annual Revell Make ‘n Take model kit program has become a fun-filled auto show tradition,” said Mark Bentley, Ford Licensing manager. “Letting kids build their own Ford GT is a great way to introduce them to the Ford brand and create new enthusiasts.”
