Car Of The Day: 2020 Ford GT Liquid Carbon Edition

Upon the launch of the 2020 Ford GT Liquid Carbon Edition, many were initially taken aback by its hefty price tag exceeding $750,000. However, a closer examination reveals the justification behind these figures. This exclusive variant boasts a breathtaking Liquid Carbon exterior, which commands an additional cost of approximately $250,000 compared to the standard GT model.

The limited-edition Ford GT Liquid Carbon takes a unique approach by stripping away the traditional paint, allowing the carbon fiber body to take center stage. A special clear coat is applied, serving as both a protective barrier against external elements and debris.

The Ford GT Liquid Carbon retains the formidable 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine found in the standard model. However, it has undergone tuning enhancements, resulting in an increased power output of 660 HP across a broader torque range. To accommodate the augmented power, the side scoops responsible for cooling have been refreshed and redesigned, facilitating nearly 50% more airflow. Additionally, larger intercoolers have been integrated to maintain lower overall engine temperatures.

Furthermore, what was once an optional upgrade has now become a standard feature for the 2020 Ford GT: the full titanium Akrapovič exhaust. This exhaust system weighs a remarkable 9 pounds less than the previous Ford Performance exhaust, while also producing a deeper and more resonant roar from the Ecoboost engine.
