The Ford GT is undeniably an impressive supercar. But it hasn’t quite squeaked into hypercar territory, largely due to the fact that it favors performance figures over onboard creature comforts. For the first time, however, we might have actually gotten one that makes the grade (if only just barely) in the 2019 Ford GT Carbon Series.
Unfortunately, this new edition doesn’t get any powertrain upgrades — not that it needed them with its 647 horsepower and 550 ft-lb of torque. It does, however, get lightened up thanks largely to an exposed carbon fiber body. However, the savings only amount to about 39 pounds. This, of course, can be accounted for by the addition of some road-going conveniences, which include an air conditioning system, a stereo system, and SYNC 3 technology. Furthermore, this exclusive version is completely street legal, making it perfect for folks who want to hit the track but don’t want to have to tow their car there. Pricing has yet to be confirmed, but Ford has made it clear that this package will cost more than $500,000.
