Car manufacturer Ford recently unveiled its third-generation Ford GT special edition model, which aims to be a celebration of America’s only Le Mans-winning race car.
To live up to this special final tribute, the Ford Performance team looked for ways to embed the winning spirit into each road car. What better way to achieve that than tuning key items at the manufacturing level?
“With innovative materials, design and engineering, the Ford GT is unlike any other production supercar,” said Mark Rushbrook, global director, Ford Performance Motorsports. “As we close this chapter of the road-going Ford GT, the GT LM Edition gave us a chance to inject even more heart and soul from a podium-finishing race car, furthering the tribute to our 2016 Le Mans win.”
Unique to this model is an additively manufactured titanium dual exhaust, featuring cyclonic design inside the tips; above these, a titanium GT LM badge is also 3D printed.
Inside, the Ford GT LM Edition’s interior features unique appointments including Alcantara®-wrapped carbon fibre seats with a matching red or blue driver’s seat, and Ebony passenger seat with accent stitching that matches the driver’s seat colour, as well as the engine start button. The instrument panel is wrapped in Ebony leather and Alcantara, while pillars and headliner are wrapped in Ebony Alcantara. Carbon fibre carries into the cabin, appearing on the console, vent registers and lower A-pillars with a matte finish.
The Ford GT remains exclusive, and these final 20 special-edition supercars will add to its collectability. Deliveries of the 2022 final model-year Ford GT LM Edition begin this fall with production wrapping up later this year.
In addition, the Ford GT Mk II, a limited-edition, track-only GT co-developed by Ford Performance and Multimatic also concludes by the end of the year with a total of 45 vehicles.
