  • Ford GT LM Edition gets a silver paint shade with red and blue livery and tinted carbon-fibre trim. 

  • Powered by a 660PS twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 engine with 3D-printed titanium exhausts. 

  • Only 20 units of the special edition supercar will be produced.

Ford has debuted a new limited edition GT LM Edition to commemorate its victory at the 2016 Le Mans and honour the original GT40’s legacy at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. 2022 is the final year of production for the Ford GT and the LM Edition is the last hurrah of the second-generation supercar. 

New Ford GT LM specs and features 

“As we close this chapter of the road-going Ford GT, the GT LM Edition gave us a chance to inject even more heart and soul from a podium-finishing racecar, furthering the tribute to our 2016 Le Mans win” – Mark Rushbrook, Global Director of Ford Performance Motorsports. 

The new Ford GT LM sports a Liquid Silver paint shade and can be had with red or blue-themed exterior accents, similar to the red and blue racing livery of the racer. Aerodynamic components such as the front splitter, rear diffuser, side sills and door sills are carbon-fibre components with a tinted red or blue hue. 

Ford’s limited edition supercar also gets 20-inch carbon-fibre wheels with red or blue inner rim accents with black Brembo brake callipers and lug nuts. 

It’s powered by the same 660PS 3.5-litre twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 engine as the standard supercar, with titanium dual exhausts that feature a cyclonic inner design. 

Inside, the LM Edition gets carbon-fibre seats with Alcantara upholstery and a matching red or blue-coloured driver's seat. The instrument panel features a special edition badge that’s 3D-printed from the ground-up crankshaft of the 2016 Le Mans-winning race car. 

Iconic special edition honours racing legacy 

The Ford GT LM Edition honours the legacy of the ‘Number 68’ race car that won the 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours at the hands of Sebastian Bourdais, Joey Hand and Dirk Muller. The Number 69 race car also achieved the podium position finishing third; the fourth and ninth placers were Ford GTs as well.

Apart from the GT LM Edition, Ford has built a total of ten limited edition series of the supercar between 2006 and 2022. Apart from the road-going version, Ford Performance and Multimatic have developed the Ford GT Mk II track-only model that’s limited to just 45 units. 

The Ford GT LM itself is ultra-exclusive, with only 20 units up for grabs. The carmaker will wrap up the supercar’s production by the end of this year.
