Ford GT Mk II 2020 revealed: Penultimate track-only GT will be ultra-limited

The Mk II is designed to show what the Ford GT is capable of when it isn't constrained by rules or regulations.

Ford has used the Goodwood festival of speed to unveil its latest development of the mid-engined Ford GT supercar.

The track-only special, dubbed the Mk II, is not designed to comply with any particular race regulations, simply aiming to offer prospective owners the “closest they can get” to the 24 Hours of Le Mans-winning version of the Ford GT.

Those prospective owners will have to fork out north of AU$1.7 million for the pleasure of owning a Mk II, which will have a production run limited to just 45 cars.

The Mk II, like other track-going Ford GTs, will be hand-built by Multimatic. The Mk II, like other track-going Ford GTs, will be hand-built by Multimatic.

The GT Mk II has “400 per cent more downforce” than the road-going version of the GT, thanks to a plethora of aerodynamic modifications. It’s 3.5-litre V6 engine also produces almost 150 more kilowatts than the regular track-only GT, with total outputs now somewhere north of 520kW.

The Mk II employs the same seven-speed dual-clutch as the regular Ford GT, but it has been “calibrated” to handle the extra power.

Ford says the GT road car and track car are hampered by design rules that prevents either from reaching their true potential, and the Mk II will “answer the question of how the car would perform with all the limitations lifted”.

The Mk II takes the best parts of both the regular road and track versions of the GT. The Mk II takes the best parts of both the regular road and track versions of the GT.

The Mk II also has a slew of new intakes and “innovative engine cooling technology” consisting of an air-to-air outboard mounted charge air cooler and “water spray technology”. It also benefits from the road car’s Brembo-branded ceramic brake set, and a unique set of 19-inch alloys clad in race-grade Michelin tyres.

The Mk II is able to be ordered right now, only via Multimatic – the team that builds Ford’s GT race cars.
