The new Ford GT Mk IV from Ford Performance and Multimatic is the most extreme version of this series ever made, with its specially developed twin-turbo EcoBoost engine producing over 800 hp, racing gearbox, aerodynamic carbon fiber body, longer wheelbase for better handling on the race track, and Multimatic's Adaptive Spool Valve Suspension System (ASV).
The new Ford GT Mk IV sees itself as a throwback to 1967, when the then-Ford GT40 won the 24 Hours of Le Mans dramatically, garnering worldwide attention. Given this history, just 67 of the $1.7 million supercars will be handcrafted at Multimatic's Canadian plant in Markham, Ontario.
The Ford GT sports car, including the "Limited Edition," is currently out of stock.
"The 1967 GT40 Mk IV made racing history in its day," remarked Mark Rushbrook, Global Director, Ford Performance Motorsports. "With an even higher technological level, a stunning boost in engine performance, and a fully new carbon fiber body, the ultimate super sports vehicle says goodbye with the Mk IV."
"Our assignment was to design a one-of-a-kind Ford GT supercar. The Mk IV is the compelling outcome," Larry Holt, Executive Vice President of Multimatic Special Vehicle Operations Group, made the statement. "A strong engine, a thoroughbred racing gearbox, a larger wheelbase, and genuinely radical carbon fiber bodywork have resulted in a degree of performance previously unseen. We are happy to have been a member of the third generation GT from the beginning and regard this excellent car as a vital chapter in Multimatic's history ".
Building on the 1966 Ford GT40 Mk II's 1-2-3 finish at Le Mans, the Ford development team improved this racing car at the time: Ford engineers and Kar Kraft collaborated to design a revolutionary lightweight Bonded honeycomb aluminum construction chassis with an aerodynamic body shape based on the latest material science research at the time.
The 1967 Ford GT Mk IV was nine inches longer than its predecessor and showed its strengths successfully competing in international long-distance races, thanks to the legendary 427 Ford V8 engine with a displacement of seven liters and a special transmission with its own cooling system, which sent the engine power to the rear wheels.
