THE 2023 FORD GT MK IV

13th December 2022

THE LIMITED TRACK-ONLY WEAPON

The All-New Limited, Powerful and Track-Only Weapon Ford has just revealed yet another special edition based on the GT supercar, but this one is particularly noteworthy as it’s a track-only monster with a new engine developing “more than 800 horsepower.” Developed by Ford Performance and Multimatic, the 2023 Ford GT Mk IV comes with a unique body, powertrain, and suspension.

“The original GT Mk IV held nothing back for max track performance, and the new Ford GT Mk IV brings it in the same way,” said Mark Rushbrook, global director, Ford Performance Motorsports. “With an even higher-level of motorsport engineering and performance, plus a completely new carbon fiber body that is functional and striking, the Mk IV is the ultimate sendoff of the third-generation supercar.”

Just 67 examples of the track toy will be produced as a nod to the original 1967 GT Mk IV race car, and each will feature “a unique twin-turbo EcoBoost engine” targeting “more than 800 hp,” a racing transmission, and a chassis with a longer wheelbase designed to improve handling. In case you were wondering, the standard road car features a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 producing 660 hp, but this one will have a larger displacement – the exact size of which remains unknown.

Multimatic executive vice president Larry Holt says that the vehicle boasts “a unique larger displacement engine, proper racing gearbox, stretched wheelbase and truly radical body,” but Ford has not revealed specific details on any of these upgrades. However, we do know that these will be hand-built at Multimatic’s facility in Markham, Ontario.

Similarly, a new client application process will screen potential owners, each of whom will have to hand over at least $1.7 million before options, with client selections to be confirmed in the first quarter of 2023. Deliveries are scheduled for late spring 2023.
