Ford’s Track-Ready Beast: the new Ford GT Competition Series
Specially designed to offer drivers a unique track-oriented experience, the new Ford GT Competition Series is lighter, more impressive and even better looking than the standard GT. This track-ready vehicle brags about an improved center of gravity, which in turn translates in improved driving dynamics – somewhat of a Nirvana for adrenaline junkies with cash.
Please note the racing stripes, the lightweight carbon fiber A-Pillars and side mirrors, as well as the race-inspired Perspex acrylic engine hatch cover, which comes with integrated venting. The engineers from Ford also went for a manual latch and a carbon fiber prop rod, adding to the weight loss, and they even reduced the thickness of the Gorilla Glass behind the driver to about half.
Developed with the most hardcore track enthusiasts in mind, this limited-edition Ford GT brags about 647 ponies, an FIA-certified steel roll cage, as well as an active aerodynamic system. The future owners of this beast should not expect AC, radio & speakers, storage bins or cup holders, as this baby was meant for hardcore action and nothing else. Standard equipment also includes the carbon fiber wheels and the titanium lug nuts and exhaust.
On the inside, you shall receive Ebony Alcantara suede on the seats, instrument panel, and headliner, as well as an exposed carbon fiber console and door sills. The anodized red paddle shifters and instrument panel badge add to the color; speaking of which, Ford will be offering this racing car in one of six different shades – Shadow Black, Frozen White, Ingot Silver, Liquid Blue, Liquid Grey and Triple Yellow. Which one would you prefer?
