Ford GT Carbon Series: lightness and exclusivity in this limited edition
No one has the slightest doubt that the > Ford GT is one of the supercars of the moment; a car that any of us would dream of having in the garage. A few days ago we told you, in this other article, that the Ford GT will expand its production due to the high demand received. In total, the American company claimed that a total of 1,350 Ford GT will be manufactured.
We do not know if limited editions are already included in this figure, such as this sensational Ford GT Carbon Series that we just met. This is a limited edition that seeks to save up to the last gram in the total weight of the set to offer the maximum possible benefits. Despite this, it is still approved to circulate on public roads.
In its exterior , this Ford GT Carbon Series is easily recognizable by the two striking longitudinal stripes, as well as by some details in four different colors to choose from , which appear both in the exterior mirrors and between the two longitudinal strips. On the inside, as on the outside, the visible carbon fiber abounds .
Comment the blue oval mark that the Ford GT Carbon Series saves about 18 kilos of weight thanks to the use of carbon fiber throughout the body and also on the new tires . These measures are complemented by the exhaust system made of titanium , the nuts of the titanium rims and the tailgate produced in polycarbonate with additional ventilation.
Although we have tried to reduce weight, some elements and comfort systems such as air conditioning, audio equipment or the SYNC 3 system have been maintained , thus offering a minimum level of comfort. Of course, it has been dispensed with elements such as cup holders and some compartments to deposit objects such as the driver's seat.
As Ford does not comment absolutely nothing about the benefits, we intuit that at the mechanical level not there are changes . That is to say, this limited edition is still powered by the V6 of 3.5 liters and supercharging of 655 HP . An engine that, as you know, is located in a central position, behind the two seats of the passenger compartment. Its maximum speed is around 350 km/h.You may be interested
