The Most Extreme Ford GT : The GT MK II

This Ford GT MK II is the extreme track-dedicated version of Ford’s supercar. It’s more powerful, lighter and loaded with aero.

This “new” Ford GT MK II is nothing more than the most extreme version of Ford’s fantastic supercar, it is not the next generation of the GT. Specifically, this is Ford demonstrating the limits of what can be done with a little tuning and lots of money.

The non-street-legal Ford GT MK II earns more power from its twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6. The standard mill produces 638-horsepower but the MK II is boosted to 700-horsepower. As we all know, weight is the enemy and so the MK II has also shed a considerable amount. From its initial 1,400kg, through suspension changes and removing the passenger seat, the weight has dropped to closer to 1,300kg. That’s some serious power-to-weight ratio.

The standard Ford GT’s 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and brakes are unchanged from the road-going version, being sufficient in the mastery at doing their jobs. The car does gain significant aerodynamic upgrades such as new front splitter, rear diffuser and an enormous rear spoiler to cope with the extra speed. All told, the GT MK II can pull 2 G’s in lateral cornering forces.

The Ford GT MK II will only be built in 45 examples at a cost starting at $1.2 million apiece.
