The Track-Only GT we didn’t know we wanted

Ford has taken its limited, GT supercar and turned it into a full-fledged track car that’s as capable if not more capable than any GT3 car currently on the market. In doing so, it increased power output from the 3.5-liter V-6 hidden behind the seats to 700 horsepower, 53 ponies more than the road-going model and 200 ponies more than the Ford GT Le Mans. Thanks to some serious weight reduction (around 200 pounds), revised suspension, and some crazy aerodynamics, the Ford GT can pull 2 Gs when cornering. To put this into perspective, the Koenigsegg One:1 was able to pull 1.7 Gs in lateral acceleration at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. This outright performance and crazy design are all possible because Ford didn’t adhere to any racing regulations. That means the Ford GT MKII can’t compete in any FIA approved competitions, but we bet that if you run across a GT3 car on open track day in a MKII, you’ll wax its ass all day long.

We were taken back by this surprise as the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed, so we’ve decided to honor the Ford GT MKII by making it our wallpaper of the day. Check out our favorite or choose your own from the gallery at the bottom of the page.
