The all-new Ford GT supercar might not give owners much choice with regard to powertrain or creature comforts when it launches later this year, but it promises to make up for this by offering a driving experience unlike any other.
Plus, each buyer will be faced with a broad range of color, material, and finish options to put their own personal touch on the car. This even includes a choice of five different brake caliper colors.
The 2017 Ford GT’s standard 6-piston, monobloc Brembo brake calipers can be optioned in one of five different colors: black, silver, red, orange, or blue. Each one of these colors can be paired with any of the supercar’s eight exterior paint colors – Frozen White, Shadow Black, Ingot Silver, Liquid Gray, Liquid Blue, Liquid Red, Triple Yellow, or Matte Black – for a total of 40 unique combinations between those two features alone. And then, you have eight different stripe styles to choose from, three carbon fiber finishes, five wheel options, four different color schemes for the interior– you get the picture.
“We walked a fine line with the color and materials in this vehicle – infusing energy through use of color and balance while working to ensure the raw appeal of a performance car still shines through,” says Ford Color and Materials Design Manager Barb Whalen. “Everything in the all-new Ford GT was intentionally designed to express ultimate performance.”
In all, we figure the Ford GT gives buyers nearly 20,000 different, unique appearance combinations – far more than the number of GTs that will ever be built. If, hearing that, you want to go and give the online configurator another go, we understand.
