What you see before you is a $750,000 road car made in a Toronto suburb. But you knew that already. The 2020 Ford GT Liquid Carbon Edition represents the most extreme variant yet of the supercar, save for the track-only Mk II. It also serves as a major perk for those who are still waiting for their Ford GT to get built, as customers can change their orders to a Liquid Carbon Edition if they so choose.
For the 2020 Ford GT and until its final production year in 2022, an Akrapovič titanium exhaust will be standard equipment to improve the soundtrack of the EcoBoost V6-powered supercar. The exhaust alone provides a nine-pound weight savings over the previous system that promises to make the Ford GT sound better than ever before, while adding 13 extra horsepower. Total output is now 660 hp as a result. Performance metrics are expected to come later.
As you can clearly see, the 2020 Ford GT Liquid Carbon Edition exposes its lightweighting secrets for the world to gaze upon with incredible detail, forgoing a paint job for a naked carbon fiber aesthetic. A special clearcoat protects the weave. However, total weight savings numbers are unknown at this time. Punctuating the theme is a set of carbon fiber wheels as standard equipment. As options, owners can select titanium lugnuts, six-point racing harness anchors, five interior options and five caliper colors.
But wait, there’s more. Starting with the 2020 model year Ford GT (non Liquid Carbon Edition), customers can choose between the dual center stripes offered on the standard Ford GT or the single stripe found on the Carbon Series as well as optional painted mirror caps. Additionally, stripes and mirror caps are available in any of the seven standard paint colors as well as the extended color palette. And for the first time, these features can be ordered independently of one another, adding deeper levels of personalization.
Finally, a new 2020 Ford GT Heritage Edition will feature a revised design that includes a black pinstripe to divide the distinct blue and orange colors, as found on the 1968-69 Le Mans- winning GT40. And historians will enjoy the fact that the optional carbon fiber number switches from 9 on the 2019 model to 6 for 2020, matching that of the historic back-to-back winning car, chassis No. 1075. If customers so choose, carbon fiber wheels are also available on this package, too.
