Ford has uncovered the 2019 GT Carbon Series at the SEMA and this model is the lighest among the competition series model which debuted in 2017. The 2019 Ford GT Carbon Series supercar is aimed at the buyers who will take their GT to the tracks. Ford said, “the Carbon Series is fitted with air conditioning, a radio and the Sync 3 infotainment system as standard to ensure owners can easily drive their cars to and from the track.”
The 2019 Ford GT Carbon Series will be 18 kgs lighter than the standard GT. The reduction in weight is brought about by introducing carbon fibre wheels, a large titanium exhaust, a clear polycarbonate engine cover with extra vents and titanium lug nuts on the GT Carbon Series supercar. Besides that the removal of the GT’s cupholders and driver’s side seat storage bin have also reduced few grams. The exterior A pillars, the lower body panels and the dual stripes running down the centre of the car are finished in carbon fibre. An optional accent colour package imparts a contrasting stripe down the middle as well as adds colour to the mirrors and brake calipers in four shades including the orange, red, silver and blue.
The 2019 Ford GT Carbon Series sports a new seat pattern, silver contrast stitching and a special logo on the dashboard, which makes the upcoming GT Carbon Series supercar stand out from the regular GT models. The other distinguishing features on the 2019 Ford GT Carbon Series includes the more exposed carbon fibre on the interior and areas such as in the air vents and center console.
