In the pantheon of Le Mans racing, Ford has a pedestal right at the front. It all started when the original GT40 took on the heavy weights (Ferrari in particular) and went on a winning spree from 1966 to 1969. Now more than four decades and two generations later, Ford has come out with the final track-only iteration of the third-generation Ford GT that harks back to the 1967 GT Mk IV.
Limited to just 67 units ( a nod to the 1967 GT Mk IV race car), the GT Mk IV is tha apogee of the Ford GT’s performance prowess. It looks like a serious all-out race car and that’s because it is one. The seriousness is emphasised by the aero-focused carbon fiber exterior design which gets some extreme angles and sharp lines, to say the least.
Not restricted by any regulations, Ford has swapped the road-legal headlights for slim LED strips. The front wheel arch doesn’t extend all the way down to the sides like it usually does. Instead, there’s a thin vertical fin just behind the wheel which then blends into the side skirts acting as a diffuser. The wheels have a cover (similar to F1’s 2022 cars) which is also probably part of the extensive aero design.
