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.

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.
Thank you. I’m looking forward to your impressions of it.

Good context relative to the road car in that article.

I have never seen race seats this close together. The driver is positioned close to the center of the car.

Wonder if they are available through the retail channels (vs through Ford)

Cant wait to see it go up the hill.

A few more details here

“The front fender splitter and the underwing are almost exactly the same as the racing car,” he said.


“Two years into the program we had an evo project where we could develop the car to the next level. We worked on it, we got a package that would give us better performance, but in the end, we didn’t do it because the BoP would have taken away the advantage.


“So we developed a next-gen underwing, and this car has that next-generation.”

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.

Where do we sign up for one? 😂 Maybe Larry H. would take a Miura in on trade....

Edit: oops, I see the link at the bottom of DBK's post.

This is a photo of the disguised test car.
Testing was done in plain sight and no one knew. Clever.0ABE56FE-BADE-4AD0-B4E6-F212C4EA6EFC.jpeg

Step up boys. Wonder how many if any of these touches will be offered in the remaining production cars.
I'm getting chassis #2 🥳 ETA December 2019 - fingers crossed that it arrives in time for the Buttonwillow Time Trials!

Like this?

"At 150 mph, Holt says the car generates 1,800 to 1,900 pounds of downforce, which is more than the car weighs."🤣

Nice addition to the “GT” legacy. That first picture posted by DBK looks just awesome. Hope we see some of these kicking ass at race events, etc....

Holy crap! What a sensational machine. Way to go Ford and Multimatic. Way to stick it to the man with all the rules and regs! A perfect 4th of July gift to the world!

Upside to buying this car is that it can't be registered...hence no sales tax which is 6.25% here in Texas.
WINNING!

Love the livery. Love the car. If I owned one I still stick a license plate on it and drive it around town and take the ticket when I was pulled over.

This car is definitely worthy of the Ford Performance fire suit and helmet I already own! Pure uncorked, track machine. Happy 4th, everyone!
