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.
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.
