Borla Exhaust is currently developing a titanium X-pipe exhaust kit for the exotic Ford GT, and teased it during the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada last month. Oddly, there wasn’t much information about this exhaust kit, or if was even anything more than a one-off. However, we’re happy to report this is not the case.
“The Ford GT system that we displayed at SEMA is going to be a new product that we will be offering. The product is currently still under development,” Borla told MC&T. Pricing, production timeline, and other estimates are not immediately available. But like other Borla kits, it will feature the brand’s patented Polyphonic Harmonizers.
The system has been in the development phase for a few years now, with some Ford GT customers fitting prototype Borla exhaust kits to their cars, which is said to weigh in around 20-25 pounds less from stock.
Multimatic is tasked with building 1,350 new Ford GT supercars between 2017 and 2022. The 647-horsepower, 216-mph machine was originally slated for 500 units, but demand for the car doubled production volume to 1,000. Then in October of 2018, Ford again bumped production by another 350 units. More exclusive are the limited “Heritage Edition” models, as well as the Carbon Edition. But the most extreme variant of the GT is the Mk II: a track-only monster that is 200 pounds lighter than the road car, while possessing 200 more horsepower than the WEC and IMSA race cars. The GT Mk II is priced at $1.2 million, and only 45 will be built, making it the most expensive new Ford ever.
Even so, before production wraps up in 2022, Ford may unleash a more powerful version still, in order to solidify the position of the GT above the 760 hp 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 that currently sits atop the horsepower totem pole.
We don’t expect everybody with a Ford GT to upgrade their OEM exhaust to a Borla kit, but just so they know, the temptation is going to be there. We can’t wait to hear how this thing is going to sound.
