This is the end of our elaborate plans, the end of everything that stands. The end. No safety or surprise. The end. The end has a name, the Ford GT LM Edition is a distillation of Ford’s Le Man’s racing verve. A new generation will eventually spawn, perhaps 10 years from now, such is the evolutionary tail of the ultra-limited flagship, no expense spared ultracar from Ford.
The Ford GT is the best of Ford, an ambassador for the brand in a way that PR court jesters such as Oliver Rowe can never hope to match. Whereas Oliver Rowe has a tragic lack of self-awareness, the Ford GT is very much a sentient being in its own right.
The 2022 Ford GT LM Edition, the final third-generation Ford GT special edition, celebrates America’s only Le Mans-winning race car that won in 2016 and the historic 1-2-3 podium sweep in 1966.
Inside, the Ford GT LM Edition’s interior features Alcantara wrapped carbon fiber seats with a matching red or blue driver’s seat, and Ebony passenger seat with accent stitching that matches the driver’s seat color, as well as the engine start button.
The instrument panel is wrapped in Ebony leather and Alcantara, while pillars and headliner are wrapped in Ebony Alcantara. Carbon fiber carries into the cabin, appearing on the console, vent registers and lower A-pillars with a matte finish.
Only 20 special-edition supercars will be made. When deliveries of the 2022 final model-year Ford GT LM Edition begin this fall with production wrapping up later this year.
The carbon fiber body is lacquered in Liquid Silver exterior paint. The limited-edition Ford GT LM is uniquely finished in either a red or blue theme throughout, honoring the red and blue race livery of the Le Mans winning No. 68 Ford GT.
The titanium 3D-printed dual-exhaust features a cyclonic design inside the tips and hints at the twin-turbo 660bhp V6 engine. Above the tips, a titanium GT LM badge is also 3D printed.
Around 1,350 units were built between 2017-2022 with a starting price of in the region of $500K, this GT LM Final Edition is sure to command a premium.
