Ford GT Hits Record 300 MPH In The Texas Mile: Video

M2K Motorsports is a custom fabrication shop that was founded in 2013 with a dream to provide reliable tuning and performance upgrades for cars and trucks. Six years later, they have one of the fastest cars in the world – a first-generation Ford GT supercar.

In 2017 we reported about M2K Motorsport’s Ford GT when it did 293.6 mph in the standing mile, setting a record for the event. It didn’t take long for the team to smash their own record by taking the same car to over 300 mph on March 24, 2019.

Take a moment to think about a first-gen Ford GT – a car that is over ten years old, going from zero to 300.4 mph in just 5,280 feet. It’s an unbelievable accomplishment that was achieved at the 2019 Texas Mile yesterday, and can hardly be overstated.

Watch for yourself, and turn up the volume. This thing sounds like a fighter jet, and we’re honestly surprised that it didn’t take off at the end of the runway.

Obviously, this Ford GT is far from stock, and while we aren’t exactly sure what has changed from 2017 to now, we do know a bit about the original setup. Inside is an Accufab-prepped 5.4L V8 and a twin-turbo setup, with a MoTec ECU and wiring/tuning from NCS Designs. In 2017 the peak power was in the neighborhood of 2,500 horsepower, and is most likely even more now, given the new record.

M2K Motorsports have dominated The Texas Mile for several years now, and we’re sure it’s only a matter of time before the team breaks even more barriers with their mighty Ford GT. The company was founded in 2013.
