Ford will be offering its supercar in a Competition Series. It worked very hard to make the already race-proven Ford GT even more track-ready. The additional Ford GT trim should make it more convenient for people who are “hardcore track enthusiasts.” The changes to the GT include Perspex acrylic engine hatch cover with a manual latch and carbon fiber prop rod, standard carbon fiber wheels, titanium exhaust and titanium lugnuts and a thinner Gorilla Glass bulkhead.
The difference between your run-of-the-mill Ford GT and this Competition Series will be easy to notice with just looking at the racing stripes
The difference between your run-of-the-mill Ford GT and this Competition Series will be easy to notice with just looking at the racing stripes. On this new trim level, Ford showed some of the GT’s carbon-fiber for the racing stripe, the opposite of the painted stripes on the standard GT. Carbon fiber was also moved inside of the interior, with emphasize on the console and door sills. You may have difficulties with the touchscreen, because it’s been deleted and it was placed a special center console plate instead. Same thing is with the air conditioning. Ford left them so as the cupholders at the factory.
For all the production years that Ford plans to make the GT the Ford GT Competition Series is available, so if you’re one of the people lucky enough to get one – you maybe wanna let Ford know that you’re crazy enough to want a $400k+ supercar.
Ford didn’t sad exactly how much easier the Competition Series is over a stripper GT, but we’ve got from them for some numbers. We can imagine the weight savings from the lack of air conditioning and media system, so as the titanium exhaust and thinner glass, is actually major. Ford told us that the dry weight, 3,054 pounds, which is available on its website measured a Competition Series-spec car.
