2021 Ford GT Studio Collection Graphics Package
The Ford GT is getting a splash of color in the form of a new graphics package that prospective owners can choose from to bring life to their beloved supercar. The exclusive series, called the Ford GT Studio Collection, comes to life by way of a design collaboration between Ford Performance and Ford GT manufacturer, Multimatic.
Together, the two parties created an avenue for Ford GT owners to personalize the look and color of their supercars through this graphics package. It comes with exclusive body colors, racing stripes, trims, accents, and everything in between. Unfortunately, access to the Ford GT Studio Collection is limited to just 40 units of the Ford GT, spread out across the 2021 and 2022 model years.
2021 Ford GT Heritage Edition
Ford is once again reminding its customers that buying a GT is the closest thing to getting your hands on a piece of motorsport history thanks to a new special edition. It’s called the Heritage Edition - of course it is - and it’s a nod back to Ford’s 1966 Daytona 24 Hour Continental race win.
2020 Ford GT "Le MANSORY"
Mansory has belatedly pulled the covers off of its latest masterpiece, the Ford GT “Le Mansory.” Initially scheduled to be revealed at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, the Le Mansory is the product of everything the German tuner stands for.
Modifications abound inside and outside of the Ford GT. It’s hard to expect anything less from Mansory, but this is no ordinary project for the tuner. The GT Le Mansory is limited to just three units, making it one of the rarest projects Mansory has ever created. Are you not intrigued?
This Five-Car Mashup Rendering Is the Epitome of Unfulfilled Desire
Renderings often serve as a fun expression of what we expect from new cars or the evolution of current cars. Sometimes, people create fun, unique renderings that look back on iconic cars from the past with a modern twist of what they would look like today. Every now and then, however, something truly amazing comes to digital life, and that’s the case with the rendering we’re about to discuss here. In short, someone took styling cues from a handful of cars that are iconic in their own right and created an all new car that has never existed and never will exist. Is this what it would look like if some of the greatest car companies in the world came together to build a truly unique supercar?
It takes three weeks to build the Ford GT Liquid Carbon
Let’s face it. The 2020 Chicago Auto Show was a dud. There’s no hiding from the fact that the format needs changing because utter dullness won’t cut it anymore. Even so, some debuts managed to shine through all that murky water.
The Ford GT Liquid Carbon edition was one of them. Ford’s supercar made a surprise appearance in Chicago, packing 13 more horsepower, better cooling, and a naked-carbon-fiber guise that ups the ante on the GT’s appeal. Turns out, though, that flaunting that exposed carbon fiber also triples the Ford GT’s build time.
2020 Ford GT Liquid Carbon Edition
Big news from FoMoCo on its supercar. It’s still powered by the same 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V-6, but for the 2020 model year, power goes up from 647 horsepower to 660 horsepower. Torque stays unchanged (550 pound-feet), but it’s now available within a broader band.
The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Just Proved Itself Against the Ferrari 812 Superfast and Porsche 911 GT3 RS: Video
Ford did a lot of things right with the Mustang Shelby GT500. It updated the Voodoo 5.2-liter V-8 used by the Shelby GT350 with a 2.65-liter supercharger, ditched the innovative flat-plane crank design of the GT350, and went for a more traditional cross-plane crankshaft, all while considerably upping the power output.
Plus, we don’t have to tell you just how much weight the Shelby name holds in the automotive industry. Then again, so does Ferrari. Or Porsche. However, as you’re about to see, that wasn’t enough to throw off the Shelby GT500.
You Can Own One of the Superformance Ford GT40 Replicas from the Ford v Ferrari Movie
We’ve always wanted, at least once, to own a piece of history. The car shared by Ken Miles and Lloyd Ruby throughout the 1966 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, a Ford GT40 Mk. II, is such an example. The identical-looking ’continuation’ Ford GT40 Mk. II seen in the recently released ’Ford v. Ferrari’ movie is another.
The good news is you can own the latter and brag that you’ll sit where Christian Bale did during filming. He’s no Ken Miles but he surely played the part convincingly well and all you have to do to get this baby blue 7.0-liter monster is be the highest bidder on lot #R554 during Mecum Auctions’ Kissimmee auction in January. Simple, right?
The New Ford v. Ferrari Movie, The History Behind It, and Why That GT40 On the IMAX Poster is Inaccurate
"This is David vs. Goliath vs. Goliath," said leading actor Christian Bale that plays veteran sports car racing ace Ken Miles in the upcoming ’Ford v. Ferrari’ movie that’ll park in a cinema near you from November 15. It’s a story about racing as much as it is a story about business affairs that become personal and about what you can achieve if you’re willing to throw infinite amounts of cash at a problem. It’s the story about Ford’s first outright success in the 24 Hours of Le Mans that ended a six-year winning spree for Scuderia Ferrari.
’Ford v. Ferrari’ (or ’Le Mans ’66’ in Europe and other places) is the first movie to take us back to Le Mans since 2003’s Michel Vaillant. Those scenic country roads in France that play host to the most famous sports car endurance race in the world over a weekend in June were first showcased to moviegoers almost 50 years ago when Steve McQueen put his fortune and reputation on the line to create ’Le Mans’. ’Ford v. Ferrari’ looks at the 1966 edition of the race but you can’t tell that by looking at the recently released IMAX poster. So, why are Bale and co-star Matt Damon seen propped up against a weird-looking Ford GT40?
Wallpaper of the Day: 2020 Ford GT MKII
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.
2020 Ford GT Mk II Quirks and Facts
Revealed as a sort of a swan song for the latest generation of the Ford GT family, the newest Ford GT Mk II track edition is the most extreme representation of the ethos created out of sheer necessity for speed. Revealed at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed Hillclimb where it won the Supercar Shootout class by running up the hill in 52.04 seconds, the Ford GT Mk II brings several specific track virtues unknown to its road-going brother.
This Ford GT does not adhere to any rule; it does not look to compete with any established competitors, but it will be faster than any of them. Developed in conjunction with Ford’s race partner Multimatic, the Ford GT Mk II Track Edition is probably the most extreme evolution of this very car we will ever see. This is what you need to know about it.
Ford’s Goodwood surprise is the MK II GT track monster
Having spawned a successor race car, the Ford GT has been transformed into a track-only customer car. Called the Ford GT Mk II, it broke cover at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed and takes the American supercar to the next level by providing a program similar to those offered by Ferrari and McLaren.
Rules of Owning a Ford GT
More than 6,500 people applied for the new Ford GT when Ford released its application program back in 2016. An unprecedented demand sparked a bit of chaos within Ford who allocated only 1,000 units for production. In 2018, Ford extended the production to add 350 units for a total production output of the new Ford GT of 1,350 units. Of course, the company will produce all the cars over a number of years, and you can expect the 1350th unit not to leave the production facility until 2022. As this is an exclusive halo supercar, with Le Mans racer inspired technology, and some serious track capability, Ford had to create some rather incredible rules that owners have to follow.
