In 2019, Ford introduced an ultra-limited track-only version of its supercar called the GT Mk II. It’s essentially a race car built for private track days, designed without any restrictions from sanctioning bodies. Just 45 were built for Ford’s most important clients, and now there’s one for sale.
The biggest change from road-going GT to Mk II is the removal of the car’s trick hydraulic system. In the street-legal car, that system controls everything from the suspension to the aero. That equipment is replaced by five-way Multimatic DSSV spool-valve dampers and a dual-element fixed rear wing, saving 200 pounds. That wing, plus a new splitter, canards, and other added aero, contribute to a 400-percent increase in downforce. Combined with sticky Michelin slicks, and the GT Mk II is capable of pulling 2g of lateral acceleration.
The engine is still the same twin-turbo Ecoboost V-6, tuned to 700 hp—50 more than the road car. The boost is thanks to a roof-mounted intake scoop and a water sprayer system to reduce intercooler temperatures, similar to systems found on the M4 GTS and 911 GT2 RS.
