If you were an eligible buyer but couldn’t get your hands on some of the first Ford GT supercars as they rolled out of the Multimatic facility in Ontario, don’t sweat it. Because, as it turns out, the longer you wait, the more Ford Performance adds to the order guide. The latest of which is the 2020 Ford GT Liquid Carbon Edition, and it’s radically detailed, incredibly crafted, and even more powerful than before.
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.
As you can clearly see, the 2020 Ford GT Liquid Carbon Edition exposes its lightweighting secrets for the world to see, 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.
MC&T was told that the price for the 2020 Ford GT Liquid Carbon Edition is $750,000.
But wait, there’s more. Also for the 2020 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, the 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.
