Ford is building on the Ford GT’s racing heritage with its most powerful version yet. The track-only Ford GT Mk II receives a number of updates, most notably to its 3.5L EcoBoost, which now produces 700 hp, 200 more than the Ford GT race car. It will also feature the same seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, which will be tweaked for the track and cooling system with water spray technology and a roof-mounted intake help the Mk II to operate at an optimal level at higher temperatures.

The massive amount of engine power is matched with a powerful brake system that uses carbon ceramic brakes, comprised of 5.5-inch front and 14.1-inch rear Brembo brakes, which sit inside Michelin Pilot Sport GT tires. Of course, it wouldn’t be a modern race car without some enhancements to the Ford GT’s aerodynamics. The Mk II features a dual-element rear wing, a new racing-spec front splitter and diffuser, new fender louvers and dive planes, all of which enables the Mk II to deliver 400% more downforce. 

The Ford GT Mk II will be limited to 45 examples and is now available.
