  • The Ford GT Carbon Series Is An Angry Lightweight Special

Adding to that ambition is today's SEMA Show unveiling of the new 2019 Ford GT Carbon Series. Total weight loss is 39 pounds.

The rest of the weight savings comes from the carbon-fiber wheels, titanium exhaust and lug nuts, and a polycarbonate rear hatch.

Some 40 pounds have been cut out of the Ford GT thanks to a diet of carbon fibre and titanium. The A-pillars and lower side skirts are also exposed carbon fiber, and the vehicle also comes standard with the optional carbon fiber wheels.

The GT Carbon Series retains some conveniences including air conditioning, radio and SYNC 3 - for those customers who want to drive to and from the track in comfort - however, luxuries including cupholders have been removed.

If you're not a fan of orange, then it's one of four choices of "accent colour", with the mirror caps, centre stripe and brake calipers also available in red, blue and silver. A unique seat pattern with silver stitching, clear anodised paddle shifters and a unique badge for the instrument panel complete the interior upgrades. "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".

Inside, the auto sports a Carbon Series badge on the instrument panel, a unique seat pattern, silver stitching on the seats and steering wheel, clear anodized paddle shifters, and matte carbon fiber for the sills, air register pods, and center console. We suspect the real appeal of this Carbon Edition is the way it looks, with more exposed carbon than any previous GT.

"The Ford GT Carbon Series stands out on the road with its striking carbon fiber-rich design and on the track with its athleticism", said in a statement Hermann Salenbauch Ford Performance director.

Buyers who have already been approved for a Ford GT can order the vehicle now.
