Ford has updated its GT supercar for 2020, bringing a higher power output, new paint finishes, and a variety of mechanical upgrades.

The new-and-improved GT now puts out 660 BHP — 13 BHP more than before — and channels all its grunt through a new Akrapovič titanium exhaust system. Furthermore, Ford has introduced two unique body color options — Liquid Carbon, which fully exposes the carbon fiber body of the GT, and a restyled Gulf Racing heritage livery that pays homage to Ford’s 1969 Le Mans win.

Ford also introduces a wider torque band with upgraded gallery-cooled pistons and higher energy ignition coils, along with a new engine calibration, making power delivery even more exciting. It’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 remains, but is paired with an updated suspension with stiffer dampening that delivers enhanced handling and body control at high speeds.

According to Autoblog, Ford says the standard GT 2020 will cost “approximately $500,000 USD,” while those who opt for the bare-carbon fiber look can expect a price tag closer to $750,000 USD — considerably higher than the supercar’s initial $450,000 USD price tag.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, Nico Rosberg recently took the Ferrari Monza SP1 around a race track.
