The $1.7M Ford GT Mk IV Looks Weapons-Grade at Sonoma Raceway
Posted on November 12, 2023
Since Ford launched the second-generation GT back in 2016, there have been several special edition models, including the Mk I and Mk II, a Liquid Carbon edition, and several different Heritage editions. None of them, though, are anywhere near as extreme as its latest—the Ford GT Mk IV. The GT Mk IV is a $1.7 million weapons-grade track monster and you can see just a taste of what it can do in this new video from Goodwood Road & Racing.
The video shows the Ford GT Mk IV making its worldwide track debut at the Velocity Invitational at Sonoma Raceway. Only 67 of these track-only GT Mk IVs will be made, so this is likely the closest many of us normies will get to seeing one.
What makes the Mk IV so much more monstrous than its predecessors? With no road rules to worry about, Ford was able to let loose and the GT Mk IV packs more than 800 horsepower from its twin-turbocharged V6. Power is no longer sent through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, as Ford replaced it with a bespoke six-speed Xtrac racing gearbox, which uses an E-clutch to get moving.
