The GT Mk II’s farewell version will be shown this weekend at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where it will compete with other supercars. It is reported that the circulation of such a car will be only 45 units.

Race car from America Ford GT participated in the last season of 24 man Le Mans endurance races in June, just three years after he returned to France with a team of four cars set up to hit the teeth of Ferrari in the 50th anniversary of their legendary team. In 1966, the Americans managed to carry out their plans. The Ford GT won the race in its class.

But now it’s over. Like … The GT’s competitive career is coming to an end, but Ford and its racing partner, Multimatic, present a farewell version of the Mk II generation GT model. It is reported that the circulation of such a car will be only 45 units, and the minimum price will be $ 1.2 million

For this seven-figure sum, a car is sold, which, according to Multimatic Chief Technical Officer Larry Holt, is “as fast as any GT3 class car”. He can not get ahead of GTE-spec GT, which participates in races in Le Mans, but still it is a very fast machine with high downforce.

The latest version of the GT Mk II has undergone intensive body modifications designed to increase downforce. A new double rear wing, an enlarged front splitter, louvered wings and a more visible rear diffuser. The front panel has more in common with the road car than with the racing performance, but also creates a little downforce.

Under the hood is a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 with more than 700 horsepower. Engineers installed a large air cooler and water spray system to better control the temperature.
