Ford reveals its £1.4M limited edition, track-only GT Mk IV Supercar
Ford revealed a limited edition Ford GT Mk IV Supercar to pay homage the 1967 GT Mk IV that won the famous Le Mans 24 hour race.
The GT Mk 4 will cost a whopping $1.7 million (£1.4 million), and will be limited to just 67 units.
The GT Mk IV will output 789bhp – 139 more than the standard GT, which was made possible by an upgraded twin-turbocharged Ecoboost engine.
The aerodynamics have been improved, the wheelbase (the distance between the front and rear wheels) has been extended, improving the handling, and it gets adaptive spool valve (ASV) race suspension, supplied by engineering firm Multimatic.
“The original GT Mk IV held nothing back for max track performance, and the new Ford GT Mk IV brings it in the same way,” Said Ford Performance Motorsports global director, Mark Rushbrook. “With an even higher-level of motorsport engineering and performance, plus a completely new carbon fibre body that is functional and striking, the Mk IV is the ultimate send-off of the third-generation supercar.”
The Ford GT Mk IV is due to be released next year, and will cost at least $1.7m (£1.4m & €1.6m), as previously mentioned. Those interested in owning one (and have the wallet for it) will have to complete a form on Multimatic’s website.
