Ford’s 2020 GT Supercar Is A 660HP Rocket Shrouded In Liquid Carbon

Ford’s GT is no stranger to widespread news coverage, especially when you consider it’s lineage as one of the most iconic, and dominant supercar’s of all time. But if the 2019 platform’s 647-horsepower twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 engine was a bit too tame, never fear — the current model year has something enticing up its sleek little sleeve.

The announcement of Ford’s 2020 Ford GT Supercar was, for lack of a better term, adulated by the community. Not only has the newly-revealed model been boosted by almost 15 horsepower (bringing it to a healthy 660, overall), but it will also be accompanied by a slew of performance-oriented peripheral and component upgrades, as well as two awe-inspiring finishes. Below the hood, the vehicle’s updated EcoBoost engine has been further refined through the use of high-energy ignition coils, gallery-cooled pistons, revised calibration, and a broader torque band. To enhance its streamlined performance upgrades, a customized Akrapovič titanium exhaust has been implemented, providing a nine-pound weight saving over the previous system. But how can one visually discern the 2020 platform from its predecessors? A superlative, shadowy carbon fiber colorway, dubbed Liquid Carbon, and Gulf Racing Heritage Livery referencing the number on the Le Mans-winning car have been announced as the collection’s primary options.
