In July last year, Ford announced an all-new graphics package for the GT supercar. At the time, the automaker provided an early preview of the customisation option with three samples and it turns out there are even more available colour schemes.

Through its motorsport division, Multimatic - the company that builds the GT in Canada - has unveiled the first customer car from the Ford GT Studio Collection, “an ultra-exclusive and unique collaboration between Ford Performance and Multimatic.” It’s looking absolutely stunning and is different from the three initial packages previewed last summer.

The vehicle in question is a 2021 GT finished in black as the main exterior colour with contrasting red stripes and brake calipers. It’s worth noting that the stripes seem to be solid rather than the half-transparent twin stripes of the standard GT from the previous model years. Interestingly, there's a graphic highlighting the mid-engine intakes. The side mirror caps are finished in the same black colour as the rest of the car as opposed to the contrasting colour combo seen in the initial renderings.

Ford’s original announcement about the 2021 GT’s customisation options included three different colour combos - red, blue, and white main colour with contrasting stripes and mirrors caps. It turns out these won’t be the only available options as this first customer example confirms.

For the 2021 model year, the GT supercar is slightly more powerful with the 3.5-litre V6 engine delivering 660 bhp (492 kilowatts) in all trim levels. That’s possible thanks to upgraded pistons and ignition coils, as well as a new engine calibration creating a broader torque curve. Larger intercoolers and a new Akrapovič titanium exhaust system conclude the mechanical upgrades for the new model year.
