The first million-dollar Ford has arrived. The Ford GT Mk II is a track-day version of the GT supercar that is more dominant and offers preferable handling than the road car. It’s not road lawful, nor is it certified for any racing series. Rather, it’s one of a new type of supercar that lives between the two worlds and is essentially intended to mess around with.
The GT Mk II features a 700 hp version of the GT’s 647 hp 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 and is equipped with additional cooling features, including a water spray for the charge air cooler and a roof-mounted air intake. Its aerodynamics package has been altered with an enormous wing and an eye on improving downforce, and it rides on a lot of Michelin Pilot Sport slicks. The cabin is equipped with two Sparco racing seats, a roll cage and a performance computer.
Beside the capacity to produce cornering loads of 2g, Ford hasn’t detailed its performance specifications, however the stock GT can hit 60 mph in 3 seconds and tops out at 216 mph, while guidelines confine the racing GT to around 500 hp.
Ford will just build 45 GT Mk IIs priced at $1.2 million each. The standard model expenses $450,000 and the GT line will be limited to 1,350 cars before its production run finishes in 2022.
