Today at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show, the Blue Oval automaker has presented two striking special editions of the mid-engine supercar, while the standard car has also received some welcome upgrades.
The Ford GT thrills with its wild looks, race car design, and twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6. For 2020, it’s even more thrilling thanks to more power, a new Liquid Carbon limited-edition variant, and tweaks to its already track-ready handling.
Instead of 647 horsepower from the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6, all 2020 GTs will produce 660 horsepower. That 13 horsepower increase comes thanks to a few changes, according to Ford. Mechanical upgrades include new gallery-cooled pistons and higher energy ignition coils. This is then combined with a new engine calibration, ultimately resulting in a broader torque band though Ford hasn’t told us what the exact difference is yet.
Ford is also offering two new appearance packages for the 2020 GT. First up is the clearcoat Ford GT Liquid Carbon, which fully exposes the GT’s lightweight sculpted carbon fiber body. As standard, the Ford GT Liquid Carbon features carbon fiber wheels, while owners can choose titanium lugnuts, six-point racing harness anchors, five interior options and five caliper colors.
The 2020 Ford GT is currently in production, and the supercar will end its run in 2022. A Ford representative said the 2020 GT starts at more than $500,000 and the Liquid Carbon edition will cost $750,000. Ford didn’t say how much the Gulf livery edition would cost.
