The Ford GT Studio Collection offers another new way GT fans can personalise their supercars.
Ford GT continues to be the pinnacle of Ford performance. The Exclusive Ford GT Studio Collection offers even more exclusivity with unique and widely customisable design features in a limited-availability package.
The automotive manufacturer will built 20 Ford GT Studio Collection models in 2021 and 20 more next year. 2022 will beFord GT’s last year of production. This version is the most customizable model from Ford GT stable. It features a Shadow Black exterior with Competition Orange accents. The future owners will customize the exterior and graphics.
The combination of the stripes and accents invokes the emotion of speed and draws your eye to some of the most prominent features of the GT.
“GT is always the ultimate expression of Ford racing innovation, and as we know from the 1966 Le Mans through today,that means constantly raising our game for our customers as well as earning the checkered flag.” – Ed Krenz, Ford Performance chief program engineer.
This all-new graphics package with customisable colors highlights key styling elements, including the functional cooling ducts that helps the 2021 Ford GT deliver all 660 horsepower during the most strenuous, high-temperature sessions at the track.
Its unique exterior graphics package was born of a design collaboration between Ford Performance and Ford GT manufacturer, Multimatic. It reflects the input of Garen Nicoghosian, Multimatic design head, who has worked on the Ford GT program since its genesis.
“The combination of the stripes and accents invokes the emotion of speed and draws your eye to some of the most prominent features of the GT,” said Nicoghosian. “The fuselage, buttresses and signature features on the headlights provide visual anchors for the graphics, guiding your eye across the vehicle.”
Only 40 luxury cars are slated to receive the Studio Collection package across the 2021 and 2022 model years. The body and graphics can be customised with seven standard colors or further personalised with an extended palette offering endless color combinations for even greater exclusivity.
For 2021, Ford is also offering a new Ford GT Heritage Edition inspired by the 1966 Daytona 24 Hour Continental. The variant features a stylish Frozen White with exposed carbon fiber and Race Red livery that pays homage to the 55th anniversary of the epic race where Ford achieved its first 24-hour endurance win.
“For this Heritage Edition, the Ford Performance team went deeper into the Ford GT’s race history and crafted a limited edition model that stylistically honors the 55th anniversary of the Daytona 24 Hour endurance race that would eventually lead to our successes at Le Mans,” said Mike Severson, Ford GT program manager. “Plus, for customers who want to highlight the carbon-fiber body and functional cooling ducts that help deliver Le Mans-winning performance, the Ford GT Studio Collection offers another new way GT fans can personalise their supercars.”
Ford previously confirmed to Motor Authority that the run of 1,350 GTs will not increase with the addition of the Studio Collection or the latest Heritage Edition for 2021. The standard 2021 Ford GT starts from about $500,000, and you can expect the Studio Collection and Heritage Edition models to top that by considerable margins.
