2020 Ford GT Adds Power And Turns Heads With Stunning ‘Liquid Carbon’ Edition
Carbon fiber supercar.
Ford revealed that the 2020 GT is getting more power and two special-editions, one of which looks particularly menacing.
All new models of the automaker’s sole true supercar will run a revised version of the trusty twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, which now produces 660 hp thanks to improved airflow. That’s not quite as mad as the output we saw from the same engine in the track-only GT Mk II, but it is up 13 horses from the 2017-2019 GTs.
The 2020 GT also features increased suspension dampening in track mode to further enhance handling and body control on the course and weight-saving Akrapovic titanium exhaust as standard.
As for those aforementioned looks, Ford is now offering and ice-cold GT Liquid Carbon edition. Instead of paint, a special clearcoat flaunts the shell’s custom carbon fiber weave. Buyers can also personalize the vehicle with optional titanium lugnuts, six-point racing harnesses, painted mirror caps, five interior and brake caliper colors, and a choice of either the standard GT’s single racing stripe or the Carbon Series’ dual stripes.
Additionally, Ford is bringing back the Gulf Racing Heritage Livery for the GT, with its iconic blue and orange colorway serving as a tribute to the 1968-69 Le Mans-winning GT40 immortalized in 2019’s acclaimed motorsports movie Ford v Ferrari. The optional carbon fiber number switches from 9 on the 2019 model to 6 for 2020, matching that of the historic back-to-back champ, chassis No. 1075.
