FORD GT (2023) OVERVIEW:
The Ford GT Mk IV hypercar will cease production at the end of the 2023 model year. To pay its respects to this model and its origin story, the automaker is giving it a proper send-off with a nod to the 1967 GT Mk IV race car that won the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans in the hands of Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt. To that end, Ford has blessed the extremely limited model—only 67 hand-built cars will be produced, and they’ll carry a price tag of $1.7 million each—with track-focused improvements. Highlights include an increase in engine displacement, which is expected to net more than 800 horsepower (up from 660 horses), a redesigned body, a longer wheelbase, a new suspension setup, and a racing gearbox. If that sounds like it might be too much for the street, that’s because it is; this GT won’t be street-legal. The only place you’ll be able to drive one is on a race track.
The 2023 Ford GT will feature a lot of new hardware compared to the outgoing model. In addition to the beefed-up engine, Ford is mating what it calls a “proper racing gearbox” to the 800-plus horsepower twin-turbo V-6 in place of the regular car’s seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. In addition, the chassis has been stretched and the Multimatic DSSV (Dynamic Spool Valve) dampers have also been upgraded to an ASV (Adaptive Spool Valve) setup. The revised suspension, extended wheelbase, and center-lock wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport racing slicks should make the GT’s increased power output more manageable on the track—which is the only place it can be driven. We can’t say without testing how fast it will be. But for reference, the standard 660-horsepower GT street car was able to blitz to 60 miles per hour in as little as 3 seconds when we tested it for the 2017 model year, posting a quarter-mile time of 10.8 seconds at 134 miles per hour.
