What a spectacular way to finalize this generation of GT. Congrats to FMC and MM. You have built a car that goes to the very limit and then moved the bar just for the heck of it. True racers.
Thank you. I’m looking forward to your impressions of it.Absolutely!
Colors are bespoke - each one's going to be painted individually, so anything a paint shop can do is fair game. Given the nature of the car I have a tribute livery in mind, and we're just seeking Ford's permission to use it. I really like the Multimatic logo on the show car, and I'll find a way to incorporate it on the car.
Options are just a few: passenger seat, air jacks, a driver cooling system (cool suit + fresh air is my usual go-to).
Finally, the ordering process started a year ago when Multimatic contacted me to gauge my interest in a derestricted GTLM version of the Ford GT. I believe my exact words were "oh HELL yes" I was asked (and did) to stay mum on the topic for a full year until the unveil at Goodwood. Then it was the usual for a low-volume project: paperwork, deposit, build schedule, a couple decision milestones, and a delivery estimate.
Amazing to think in just a few more months this beast will be tearing around the local tracks.
FWIW, there's a lot of inexplicably bad info floating around in the press pieces. As an example, no, the car does not have a new 8-speed gearbox, and also, no, it does not magically have 20" carbon ceramic rotors and 19" Michelins. This is not the golden era of automotive reporting.
