You may have thought you’d seen the last of this mid-2010s supercar, but now it’s back, and wilder than ever before. Introducing the Ford GT Mk IV.

Extreme track-only supercars have emerged as a slightly bonkers consumer trend for the world’s ultra-wealthy petrolheads. Cars such as the Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro, McLaren Senna GTR, and De Tomaso P900 are becoming all the more common as time goes by. Now, it’s Ford’s turn to get in on the act.

The end result of their efforts is this: the Ford GT Mk IV. It’s a name that’ll be familiar to Blue Oval afficionados, having first been used on an evolution of the original Ford GT in 1967. That car was a masterclass in how to unleash a vehicle’s potential, which is fitting, considering that Multimatic were clearly given a very similar design brief.

A head-on look a the Ford GT Mk IV.

The Canadian firm has long been Ford’s go-to contractor when dabbling in the world of motorsport and track cars. They’ve been integral to the modern Ford GT’s development throughout its lifespan, so it’s only right that they were once again enlisted to design the Mk IV.

As you can see from these photos, the new car’s carbon fibre body features heavily aero-focused styling, including a longtail rear end and turbofan wheel rims.

The car has a new longtail silhouette.

In addition to being able to cut through the air better than ever before, the Mk IV also comes equipped with a healthy chunk of extra power. Its uniquely tuned twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 should be good enough for 800 PS, while all that power gets put down via a racing-spec transmission.

What’s more, the longtail aspect of the Ford GT Mk IV’s design has translated into a longer wheelbase too. This should help with handling, especially when paired with Multimatic’s adaptive suspension.

Just 67 of these final Ford GTs will be made; a nod to the model year of its Mk IV namesake. If you’re interested in bagging one for yourself this Christmas, make sure to ask Santa Claus extra nicely, as the asking price stands at a whopping $1.7 million apiece.
