Ford celebrated its wonderful return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race by presenting the GT Mk II supercar in the summertime of 2019. It was a extremely restricted, no-limitations observe beast of which simply 45 have been made, every with a beginning worth of $1.2 million. Principally, it was a automobile that was as quick as any GT3 automobile however, clearly, you could not drive it on public roads.
Upgrades impressed by that automobile may very well be coming to the ultimate sequence of road-legal Ford GT. That’s in accordance with data by MuscleCarsAndTrucks primarily based on current images of a GT prototype posted on a Fb group. As a reminder, the sold-out Blue oval supercar will exit of manufacturing subsequent 12 months.
When requested in regards to the GT prototype, Ford merely mentioned the automobile is “not Ford Motor Firm property.” Nonetheless, that doesn’t imply it’s not associated to the automaker as FoMoCo is definitely partnering with Canada’s Multimatic for the manufacturing of the GT supercar.
In accordance with the out there data, the take a look at automobile had a hood scoop and fender extractor vents similar to these seen on the GT Mk II, in addition to visible enhancements impressed by the GT Studio Assortment Version. For these hoping to see the track-only supercar’s wing on a road-legal model of the GT, we’ve got dangerous information – evidently this could be a bit too excessive for Ford.
There’s no phrase on whether or not the aerodynamic and visible upgrades will probably be complemented by efficiency upgrades beneath the hood, although MC&T says that it’s believable. Probably the most highly effective manufacturing automobile Ford has ever constructed thus far is the 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 with 760 horsepower (567 kilowatts), and it’ll be fascinating to see whether or not the GT send-off mannequin may high that determine.
In comparison with the GT Mk II, the ultimate sequence of road-legal GTs will clearly have a really totally different position. Whereas the track-only beast answered the query “how would the automobile carry out with all the constraints lifted,” the send-off run earlier than manufacturing ends subsequent 12 months will probably be made for the open street.
