Ford’s GT is one of the best modern-day supercars — from its iconic, wind tunnel-tested exterior to its powerful and unique powerplant and everything in-between. Yet it’s still likely to leave some petrol heads wanting for more. If you fall into that group, then today is your lucky day because Ford has just announced a more-powerful, racing-focused follow-up called the Ford GT MK II.
A culmination of what the American manufacturer learned from their successful FIA World Endurance Championship and IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship campaigns, Ford Performance teamed up with Multimatic to craft this track-only supercar. To improve upon the platform, they souped it up with a 700HP 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine; performance-focused, race-proven aerodynamics; and they even cut weight and altered the chassis for more power and better handling. In fact, according to the brand, this is the closest any of their customers can get to driving the 2016 Le Mans-winning GT. Of course, all those improvements do come with a pair of major caveats: only 45 of these limited-edition supercars will ever be built and they’re selling for $1,200,000 apiece.
