Ford GT Carbon Series Is Lighter, Limited, Lovely

The Ford GT Carbon Series Is An Angry Lightweight Special

Hopefully most of the new ones will be the new GT Carbon Series, which is lighter than the normal GT but not lighter than the GT Competition Series. Pricing hasn't been announced, but bear in mind the base Ford GT now costs just under $500,000.

There's a new titanium exhaust, titanium wheel nuts and a rear hatch constructed from polycarbonate, while the bodywork has sprouted some new vents, making some of the panels lighter.

Therefore, though it retains its air conditioning and infotainment systems, the burdensome weight of the cupholders and driver's side storage bin has finally been removed from the 650hp machine, freeing it to at last realise its full potential.

Unlike the Competition Series, though, the Carbon Series comes standard with a radio and air conditioning.

Bowers is being treated for gunshot wounds and is due in court Monday. "Screw your optics, I'm going in", he posted . Scott Brady, the USA attorney in western Pennsylvania, told a news conference, "We are treating it as a hate crime".

The exterior boasts two exposed carbon fibre stripes with matching A-pillars, lower body panels and gloss carbon fibre wheels. Regardless of this choice, all will get a unique seat pattern with silver stitching that is repeated on the steering wheel. "It is yet another example of how we can bring to life our Le Mans-winning supercar in new and exciting ways so our customers can share in that magical legacy".

As per Ford, carbon fiber was used on the gloss wheels of the vehicle, the lower body panels, interior sills, air register pods, and center console. The mirror caps, centre stripe, and calipers can be had in four optional accent colours-silver, orange, red or blue. "So we developed the Carbon Series to satisfy that need, while providing a distinct look", said Lance Mosley, marketing manager at Ford Performance.

The Ford GT Carbon Series is said to be nearly 18kg (40lb) lighter than the standard vehicle. It's available to order now for pre-approved customers but will also be available to new customers in select global markets, including the US, when the application process reopens on November 8.
