The Ford GT is one of those cars that always seems to be in the news for weird things. When the latest generation GT was launched only certain people were allowed access to buy one thanks to a bunch of weird restrictions from the automaker. We never bothered to read up on the specifics, but there was (apparently) a clause that prevented owners who made the list of allocations from selling the car on. This helped drive up desirability for the car, as well as the value. This meant that owners had an almost immediate increase in the value of their Ford GT, but most of them were the kinds of people who aren’t tempted by money and so it was a non-issue. John Cena got one, and we’re guessing he probably didn’t fit in it comfortably because it didn’t take long for him to sell the car - and he didn’t involve Ford as per the Ts & Cs and so he’s been banned from buying from Ford. We’re talking about a different Ford GT here though, a limited edition track-only version that Cena would have probably kept - the 2023 Ford GT Mk IV.
“Multimatic’s brief was to create the most extreme final version of the Ford GT, and the Mk IV is the outcome,” said Larry Holt, executive vice president, Multimatic Special Vehicle Operations Group. “A unique larger displacement engine, proper racing gearbox, stretched wheelbase and truly radical body has resulted in an unprecedented level of performance. We are proud to have been a part of the third-generation GT from its inception to this amazing swan song and consider it a significant chapter in Multimatic’s history.” There’s a new client application process (sorry Cena) and those that “qualify” will have to fork over a mere $1 700 000 and they can expect deliveries to begin in late spring 2023.
