Ford GT Supercar Revealed at Goodwood Festival of Speed

On July 4, a new Ford GT supercar debuted at the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed. The Ford GT Mk II is purely for the track — not even road-legal — and comes in an extremely limited run. Only 45 production models will ever be released. The Ford GT Mk II is destined to go down in history as a collector’s item for only the most dedicated enthusiasts.

 

A collaboration between Ford and Multimatic, the GT Mk II was built off of the production version of the GT. The project was a case of automotive experimentation; unrestricted by either racing or legal restrictions, its engineers crafted the race car in a way that produces over 400 percent more downforce than its road-legal sibling. It also features a roof-mounted air scoop, front dive planes, a rear wing, and fender louvers.

 

Both the track-only and production version of the Ford GT supercar utilize a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6. Of course, the Mk II’s engine is tuned for much higher output than the factory version.
