The 2021 Ford GT Heritage Edition was not all. Say hello to the 2021 Ford GT Studio Collection. While it doesn’t celebrate any racing wins, it does celebrate something just as important: design.
The Ford GT Studio Collection is an all-new graphics package with customizable colors, and highlights key design elements, such as putting a stripe around the flying buttresses. Hey, did you know that the Ford GT has those? Because it’s very important that you do.
The package is said to come from the input of Garen Nicoghosian, who currently serves as the head of design for Multimatic. Nicoghosian previously worked for Ford Motor Company before moving on to the bespoke Ontario supplier, which builds the current Ford GT.
The body and graphics can be customized with seven standard colors, or literally any color the customer wants. Maybe somebody else will have a pink Ford GT, but it won’t be your shade of pink. And to multimillionaires, that’s everything.
“The combination of the stripes and accents invokes the emotion of speed and draws your eye to some of the most prominent features of the GT,” said Nicoghosian in a statement. “The fuselage, buttresses and signature features on the headlights provide visual anchors for the graphics, guiding your eye across the vehicle.”
Here’s a key detail, no pun intended: just 40 cars are slated to receive the Studio Collection package across the 2021 and 2022 model years. This will make this package extremely, extremely rare. The Ford GT is already a collector’s centerpiece, with just 1,350 units allocated from December 2016 to 2022.
Deliveries of the 2021 model year Ford GT begin in early 2021, with Ford GT production wrapping up in 2022. Considering this is the third new variant announced this year, it can only be expected that Ford will likely up the ante as we approach the finale of the GT lifecycle.
