The Carbon Series car is 40 lbs lighter than a base GT thanks to standard carbon-fiber wheels with titanium lug nuts—which are otherwise optional on other GTs—a titanium exhaust, and a polycarbonate engine cover. There’s also no cupholders and driver-seat storage bin because when you’re going for lap times, every ounce matters.
As for the price of all this? We’ve reached out to Ford to find out. We also don’t know exactly how much a Carbon Series GT weighs. Our best guess is 3341 lbs, based on the measurements our colleagues at Car and Driver recorded, minus 40 lbs.
For 30 days starting November 8th, Ford will reopen the application process for those seeking to be selected to buy a GT. The first 500 cars have been allocated, so there are 850 more slots up for grabs. The Carbon Series package is now available for those who’ve already been approved to buy a GT, but haven’t yet ordered their cars. And of course, it’ll be available for the additional 850 GTs Ford plans to build.
