The Spy Guy reports that the midengine supercar that’s built in very limited numbers by Multimatic in Canada is now even a bit more exotic. To begin with, the 2020 version, which carries a half-million-dollar price tag, comes with a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 that now puts out 660 horsepower (up from 647) but is rated at the same 550 pound-feet of peak torque. The increase is due to new piston oiling, increased spark to the cylinders, and redesigned air ducts and larger intercoolers for the turbochargers. The changes were originally designed for the 2019 GT MK II racecar. For 2020, buyers (by invitation only) can also order their GT as a Liquid Carbon model with unpainted (clearcoat finish only) carbon-fiber body panels. Carbon-fiber wheels are also part of the package. Each of the 12 Liquid Carbon GTs will cost $750,000.
Ordering the GT without paint is no simple thing. Multimatic, which constructs the GT, revised the manufacturing process to ensure the weave would line up at all the seams. PHOTO: FORD
