2020 Ford GT Gets More Power And Upgrades With Liquid Carbon Edition

The 2020 Ford GT has had a going-over by Ford in a surprising turn of events. It’s had both performance and visual upgrades, with the original Ford GT Mk2 racecar being its inspiration.

An extra 13hp and a wider torque band come from an updated engine calibration, gallery-cooled pistons, and higher-energy ignition coils, with the total power figure standing at a tidy 660hp. It’s also received a larger intercooler and updated styling of the rear air ducts which has increased air-flow by 50%. Switch the car into its well-known ‘track mode’ and its suspension has had a going over to allow for improved handling and body control.

The $10,000 Akrapovic titanium exhaust system now comes as standard, meaning it sounds as menacing as it looks and also cuts away an all-important 4kg from its overall weight.

The Liquid Carbon Edition features a clear-coated carbon fibre body, carbon fibre wheels, and titanium lugnuts come as an optional extra. If you fancy taking the car to your local track, you can get a 6-point harness fitted, too. Oh, and you can still get the racing stripe painted on if that’s what you fancy.

A livery inspired by the  GT40 1968-1969 Le Mans winner also meets the new lineup with the classic orange and blue paintwork being complemented with black pinstripes and the number ‘six’ if you wish on the side. This is also available with the carbon wheels.

Which one would you take home?

Alex started racing at a young age so certainly knows his way around a car and a track. He can just about put a sentence together too, which helps. He has a great interest in the latest models, but would throw all of his money at a rusty old French classic and a 300ZX. Contact: [email protected]
