It was back in January 2015 when Ford officially unveiled its newest halo car, the Ford GT. Not only does the supercar look sleek, but the GT also comes with a highly-tuned 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 that (initially) made 655 PS and 745 Nm of torque.
Then in early 2020, Ford revealed the updated (and more lightweight) GT during the Chicago Auto Show. The flagship supercar got a sexier-looking body, generous amounts of lightweight carbon fiber upgrades, and an uprated twin-turbo V6 that now churns out 669 PS thanks to upgraded pistons and higher-energy ignition coils.
But with Ford continuing to push towards electrification, the flagship GT supercar is essentially living on borrowed time. With that, the Blue Oval has decided to give the GT a proper send-off. This is the 2023 Ford GT LM, and it's the brand's way of celebrating the vehicle's Le Mans-winning heritage.
Serving as the final special edition for the current-gen road cars, the GT LM Edition will only be limited to just 20 units. All examples will come with either red or blue-tinted accents in honor of the 2016 GT's Le Mans-winning livery. It will also come with special 3D-printed elements of the 2016 third-place winning GT Le Mans supercar and an Alcantara interior.
Other unique features present on the vehicle include; 3D titanium printed dual exhausts, exposed gloss carbon fiber 20-inch alloy wheels, titanium lug nuts, Brembo brake calipers finished in black, and ultra-lightweight material for the front splitter, side sills, door sills, rear diffuser, and engine louver.
To fully cement the GT LM Edition's special status, the crankshaft of the third-place winning GT (No. 69) was grounded down into a powder and was developed into a unique bespoke alloy used to 3D print the instrument panel badge for each of the 20 special edition supercars.
Since only 20 examples will be made in total, the GT LM Edition will be reserved for approved GT customers only. Pricing has not yet been revealed but given the exclusivity of this send-off for the Ford GT, expect it to be priced more than your regular GT.
