The 2023 Ford GT Mk IV Is The Best A Ford GT Could Ever Be

Oh, I’m sorry, did you think the Ford GT LM was the final Ford GT? Not quite. Ford and its partner Multimatic have created a track-only sendoff with a modified carbon fiber body and a wicked 800 horsepower twin-turbo V6 to say au revoir to the Ford GT. Maybe. Who knows? Keep building Ford GTs. Never stop building Ford GTs.

The name is important. The original Ford GT40 that inspired these cars was impressive for a first start, but the car everyone remembers is the Ford GT40 Mk II that went on to finish 1-2-3 at Le Mans. But that wasn’t where Ford’s racing story ended. The company produced even more winning cars, including the long-and-fast Ford GT40 Mk IV that went on to win in 1967.

Appropriately, Multimatic (the Canadian company that builds these machines) is going to only build 67.


This car is the ultimate realization of what a Ford GT can be: the body is longer, it has a race transmission (assuming six-speed sequential, but Ford doesn’t say), the exterior has been redesigned to be more aerodynamic, it gets Multimatic’s Adaptive Spool Suspension, and the twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 is “targeting” 800 horsepower.

“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.”

It seems like mission accomplished there. At $1.7 million it ain’t cheap, but maybe they can make one in Beauberry.
