The Ford GT is as iconic as any car ever built. Instantly recognizable, Ford’s supercar has seen many improvements since its Le Mans victories in 1966 and 1969. Yet the heritage and style has never been lost throughout the years. This is a true testament to the dedication and engineering of Ford Performance’s racing innovation.
One of the most amazing design elements in the modern Ford GT is the placement of Ford’s powerful twin-turbo 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine. The incredible weight balance achieved through this design enables the GT to achieve outstanding handling finesse. Ford also increases the horsepower up to 660 for the 2020 GT, this is a 13 hp increase over 2017-2019 models. If you have not heard this engine roaring at wide open throttle, it should be on your “to do list” because it sounds like a jet engine. Pure bliss.
Other new innovations for the 2020 Ford GT include improved cooling, increased suspension dampening and an Akrapovič titanium exhaust system as standard equipment. The 2020 Ford GT Liquid Carbon edition takes lightweight supercar engineering to the extreme. Since the GT’s body is sculpted from advanced carbon fiber materials, Ford Performance and Multimatic Niche Vehicles decided to make one without exterior paint.
The 2020 Ford GT Liquid Carbon edition seals the beautiful carbon fiber weave appearance with a clear coat and nothing else. This stylish appearance pays homage to the GT’s racing heritage as well as its modern innovative carbon fiber design. Carbon fiber wheels come as standard equipment with the Ford GT Liquid Carbon and titanium lugnuts are available as an optional upgrade.
Other features and equipment exclusive to the 2020 Ford GT Liquid Carbon include six-point racing harness anchors, five different interior options and the choice of five different brake caliper colors.
Ford also allows some exterior personalization of the 2020 GT Liquid Carbon edition. There are two over-the-top stripe options. Choose between dual center stripes or a single stripe. You can also elect to have painted mirror caps. Both the stripes and the painted mirror caps are available in one of the seven standard paint colors available on the new GT or you can choose from an extended color palette.
The Ford GT is America’s true supercar. With the 2020 Ford GT Liquid Carbon edition, drivers have the option of owning one of the most unique versions of the historical supercar. Just because the GT offers driving enthusiasts the ultimate performance experience doesn’t mean they have to sacrifice style. Displaying the impressive carbon fiber architecture of the GT will not only turn heads, it will serve as a reminder of how capable this lightweight supercar truly is.
