Buyers can choose from eight body colours, including the launch car’s Liquid Blue, and five brake caliper colours

The Ford GT will be available in a choice of eight exterior colours and with multiple options for personalisation when it arrives later this year.

The supercar’s maker says the GT’s palette options reflect its innovative technical and aerodynamic design, and should ensure that almost every GT will be unique.

Ford has now confirmed that the GT’s launch colour, Liquid Blue, which was first seen at the 2015 North American International Auto Show, will be offered. It’s expected to be a popular choice for buyers, but they can also choose from white, red, yellow, black, grey, silver and matte black. Racing stripes can be added too.

The car’s six-piston brake calipers can be painted in a variety of colours, the first time Ford has offered such an option. As standard, the monobloc-anodised calipers are black, but buyers can upgrade to silver, blue, orange or red.

Buyers can also customise the colour scheme of their GT’s interior, with multiple options for stitching, ribbing and fabric colours available. If buyers want to recreate the look of Ford’s launch cars, a selection of ‘suggested colours’ are provided, each coordinating the car’s cabin with its exterior.

“We walked a fine line with the colour and materials in this vehicle – infusing energy through use of colour and balance while working to ensure the raw appeal of a performance car still shines through,” said Barb Whalen, Ford’s design manager for colour and materials. “Everything in the all-new Ford GT was intentionally designed to express ultimate performance.”

Whalen said that the GT will only be available in the small selection of exterior colours and not with the near infinite number of options some other supercar makers offer because “these colours aren’t trendy, [as] the Ford GT isn’t a trendy car. It is a classic – a veritable race car for the road.”

No prices for the car or its options have been revealed yet, but sources expect the GT to start at around £395,000. If this is the case, well specced models could comfortably exceed £400,000, which is close to £85,000 more than the likes of the Lamborghini Aventador SV.

The Ford GT is pipped to arrive sometime later this year or early next year. It uses a 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine that’s claimed to produce more than 592bhp. Order books have already closed for the first 500 models, and as few as 10 could be headed to the UK.
