Ford seems to be giving the current generation Ford GT one of the longest farewell tours of a vehicle we’ve seen in recent years. The vehicles last track only model was announced late last year after multiple special and heritage editions preceded it. Now the blue oval company has brought another Ford GT to the table although this time some assembly is required. New for 2023 is a 2022 Ford GT Lego Technic set comprised of over 1,400 pieces.
This Ford GT will require a little more assembly than Ford’s prior Lego addition, the Ford F-150 Raptor which came in only 1,379 pieces.The Ford GT comes in exactly 1,466 pieces and has an estimated arrival date of April 2023. The set doesn’t have a set price from Lego yet either, however Walmart has it listed for $119. The Ford GT will measure over 3.5 inches tall, 15 inches in length , and 7 inches wide. Overall the Lego Technic Ford GT will resemble a 1:12 scale model of the real thing. It will also feature a “functional” V6 that sports moving pistons as well as both front and rear independent suspension. The front wheels will be positionable thanks to its front axle steering mechanism as well as feature an adjustable rear spoiler adding to its likeness and similarity to the real thing.
Speaking of the real thing, Ford’s final real Ford GT was the Mk IV model that was solely meant to see the track. It also carried a significant price tag of $1.7 million but offered a class topping 800 horsepower. While there is no mention of a production unit of the Lego GT, the Mk IV is restricted to only 67 units in all. The non track model GT utilizes an EcoBoost 3.5-liter twin-turbo producing 660 horsepower. While we’ve been told “this is the final Ford GT” before, it feels safe to say this time its for real.
