Unlike the GT Competition revealed a couple of years ago, however, the Carbon Series keeps much of the standard GT's creature comforts. We suspect that Ford could have shaved off a few more pounds if it removed the climate control and radio, but Ford said that GT buyers didn't want to sacrifice those features.
The exterior boasts two exposed carbon fibre stripes with matching A-pillars, lower body panels and gloss carbon fibre wheels. Inside, upholstered parts get unique silver stitching, and matte carbon fiber is used for the air vent pods, side sills and center console.
"The Ford GT Carbon Series will stand out on the road with its striking, carbon-fibre-rich design and on the track with its athleticism".
To earn that title the Carbon Series sheds approximately 18kg thanks to the addition of carbon fibre wheels with titanium nuts, a titanium exhaust, and a lightweight polycarbonate rear hatch - complete with additional venting. The Ford GT Carbon Series is not meant to be a track-only vehicle, however, as creature comforts such as air conditioning, a radio, and the Sync 3 infotainment system remain to make this latest special-edition GT a livable everyday commuter.

Aimed at making the vehicle even more track worthy, Ford chose to fit the GT with a series of carbon fiber elements to make it shed some fat. "It is yet another example of how we can bring to life our Le Mans-winning supercar in new and exciting ways so our customer can share in that magical legacy".
"While the Ford GT Competition model appeals to hardcore racing enthusiasts, we found more customers asking for more exposed carbon fiber with the air conditioning and radio still intact", says Lance Mosley, marketing manager, Ford Performance. Inside the cabin, look for special Carbon Series badges and various red accents.
