Ford GT MK II 2016-

At the 2015 North American International Auto Show and at the unveiling of the 2015 racing video game Forza Motorsport 6, a new, redesigned Ford GT was shown to the public with plans for production in 2016. The car marked 50 years since the GT40 won the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans and competed successfully in the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans to better celebrate the anniversary, winning the LMGTE Pro class.

The car is powered by a 3,496 cc (3.5 L; 213.3 cu in) Twin-turbocharged Ford EcoBoost V6 engine generating a power output of 647 hp (482 kW; 656 PS) and 550 lb⋅ft (746 N⋅m) of torque.[14] The engine shares many components with the F-150's 3.5 L V6 engine including the cylinder heads, block and dual fuel system. Notable differences include larger turbochargers, an aluminum intake manifold, a custom dry sumped lubrication system, unique camshafts and higher strength rotating and timing drive components. At the time of introduction, the Ford GT had one of the highest specific power outputs of any production car.

According to Ford, "the GT will exhibit one of the best power-to-weight ratios of any production car," courtesy of its lightweight carbon fiber construction. Underpinning the GT is a carbon fiber monocoque bolted to aluminum front and rear subframes covered in carbon fiber body panels. The car also has a race inspired pushrod suspension system, active aerodynamics, and dihedral (butterfly) doors. The windshield of the vehicle is made of Gorilla Glass manufactured by Corning, which is also used for manufacturing smartphone screens. The Gorilla Glass is used to reduce the weight of the vehicle by allowing for a thinner windscreen with the same strength as a normal glass windscreen.[20] The GT employs a four-stage external dry sump oil pump and has an oil capacity of 15.3 US quarts (14.5 L).

Production began in December 2016, with a planned production rate of one car per day at Ford's new, low-volume assembly facility at Multimatic in Markham, Ontario, Canada until October 2020. The cars produced for the 2017 and 2018 model years are reserved for selected buyers, the cars produced for the 2019 model year are for buyers who passed over in the initial selection process, and the cars produced for the 2020 model year are for normal customers.

A track-day-only Ford GT Mk II was launched on 4 July 2019 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. It is 200 pounds (90 kg) lighter than the road car. It is not street legal and only 45 will be built and each costs $1.2 million being the most expensive new Ford ever
