Ford announces the’23 Ford GT Mk IV supercar, calling it “the ultimate and most extreme track-only Ford GT ever.”
Developed in cooperation with Canadian automotive-engineering company Multimatic, the final track-only Ford GT features a twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 targeting more than 800 hp, race transmission, carbon fiber “long tail” body and extended-wheelbase chassis for improved on-track handling, as well as Multimatic’s Adaptive Spool Valve suspension.
Ford is not specifying engine displacement, but indicates it will be larger than the third-generation Ford GT’s twin-turbo 3.5L V-6.
The Mk IV is available to order from Multimatic with production limited to 67 units hand-built in Markham, ON, Canada. The number honors the original 1967 GT Mk IV race car that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans that year.
“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,” Mark Rushbrook, global director, Ford Performance Motorsports, says in a news release. “With an even higher level of motorsport engineering and performance, plus a completely new carbon-fiber body that is functional and striking, the Mk IV is the ultimate sendoff of the third-generation supercar.”
Ford will begin a new client application process (https://www.ford.com/performance/gt/mk-iv/) for the $1.7 million supercar, with client selections confirmed in first-quarter 2023….
