Ford calls its new Ford GT Mk IV “the ultimate and most extreme track only Ford GT ever,” and with good reason. It comes with a specially engineered twin-turbo Ford EcoBoost engine targeted to produce 800-plus horsepower, a Multimatic Adaptive Spool Valve (ASV) race suspension and a sleek carbon fiber body.

Multimatic’s brief was to create the most extreme final version of the Ford GT, and the Mk IV is the outcome,” said Larry Holt, executive vice president, Multimatic Special Vehicle Operations Group. “A unique larger displacement engine, proper racing gearbox, stretched wheelbase and truly radical body has resulted in an unprecedented level of performance. We are proud to have been a part of the third-generation GT from its inception to this amazing swan song and consider it a significant chapter in Multimatic’s history.”

The Mk IV pays homage to the original Mk IV that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1967. Only 67 examples of the new Ford GT Mk IV will be built by hand at Multimatic’s facility in Markham, Ontario, Canada. Those interested in purchasing one must fill out an application form, which you can find here. Client selections will be confirmed during the first quarter of 2023, with deliveries set to begin in late spring 2023.

The starting price for the new Ford GT Mk IV is projected to be $1.7 million.

Pretty darned cool. I found it funny that outlaw-Porsche icon Magnus Walker publicly criticized Porsche for not coming up with a compelling design like this.

I would one thousand times over prefer it with an NA Voodoo V8 with 250 less HP. Those V6s sound awful even in race trim.

Too bad this doesn't slide into the new Hypercar class, it would be so cool to see them go for another overall win at LeMans
