The final track-only model boasts superior aerodynamics, extreme performance and razor-sharp handling.
The second-gen Ford GT production might have ended with the GT LM Edition, but it’s not all over just yet. I mean, it’s over for the public roads, but for race tracks, Ford is building the 2023 Ford GT Mk IV—limited to 67 units, of course, a number honoring the original 1967 GT Mk IV race car. Yes, the 2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition was also built to honor the aforementioned 1967 race car, but the 2018 model was limited to 39 units.
At first glance if you thought that the 2023 GT Mk IV is an all-electric race car, don’t worry, you’re not alone. That blue-red livery and those aero covers on the wheels do make it look like an electric racer the likes of the Porsche Mission R concept, but it is not. The GT Mk IV is still powered by a twin-turbo EcoBoost engine with an estimated output of over 800 bhp.
The track toy features a full carbon fibre “long tail” body with large louvers on the hood and an extra large wing at the rear—mounted on swan neck mounts. Multimatic Adaptive Spool Valve (ASV) race suspension; longer wheelbase, and a bespoke racing gearbox are some of the other key highlights.
Ford was nice enough to share the pricing of this contraption, which is gonna be about $1.7 million (MSRP, before options or any customizations). Since Multimatic is gonna build these, you’ll need to place your order (sorry, register your interest) on their website here. Client selections will be confirmed in the first quarter of 2023, with first deliveries planned for late spring. Good luck!
