The Ford GT comes in a solitary configuration and is essentially a model built both to showcase what Ford’s engineers can do and also to capitalize on the heritage that the GT name evokes. Powered by a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6, fans of the older GT models will be upset at the loss of a V8 engine option, but the performance figures of 660 hp and 550 lb-ft speak for themselves. Along with the death of the V8, so too dies the manual gearbox. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox is the only transmission option. The body is crafted from carbon fiber and houses an FIA-approved roll cage, while Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes with six-piston calipers in front bring the American supercar to a stop.
The Ford GT is a car that's super affordable - provided that you own majority shares in companies like Microsoft, Apple, Qatar Airways, the Burj Khalifa hotel in Dubai, and British American Tobacco. The starting price for the Ford GT is an eye-watering $500,000. Let that sink in for a second. Half a MILLION dollars for something that shares a badge with a Transit panel van. While we don't know what customization options on this supercar would cost, it's safe to say that if money is no object for you, you may still be wary of getting carried away with the customization choices.
No packages are really available to add further features, but you can choose from a list of 'Le Mans-inspired color schemes and liveries. Carbon fiber wheels can also be specced, or you can go the whole hog and get a Liquid Carbon package that specs no paint on the naked carbon body, with the panels instead coated in a clear gloss lacquer. This package also includes the carbon wheels as standard. Stripes in various colors and brake color choices are also open to potential buyers.
All Ford GTs for sale come essentially fully-specced, with only appearance changes available for customization. While the choice, therefore, comes down to your own personal preferences, we'd certainly spec a Heritage Edition in the timeless Gulf racing colors of sky blue and orange. Coupled with carbon fiber wheels to draw attention to the exposed-carbon race number on the doors, as well as orange brake calipers to tie the color scheme in further, this would be the ultimate expression of modern nostalgia.
