2016/2017 Ford GT LMGTE/GTLM

2016/2017 Ford GT LMGTE/GTLM

Commemorating the 50th anniversary of Ford’s 1966 overall victory at Le Mans, the 2016 GT serves as flagship of the new Ford Performance group, and is Ford’s showcase for aerodynamics, lightweight carbon fibre construction, and Ford EcoBoost® power.

Multimatic is proud to have been chosen to assemble the production run of Ford GT road cars in partnership with Ford, and was tasked with applying Multimatic’s global resources to design, construct and develop an LMGTE-homologated race version for Ford’s official competitive return to the Le Mans 24-hour race.

Multimatic will campaign the GT race car globally in the FIA World Endurance Championship, while Chip Ganassi Racing undertakes a parallel North American campaign in IMSA’s GTLM category.
