Ford reveals GT MK IV as the track-only monster with 800PS
American auto major Ford has unveiled the limited-edition GT MK IV. This will be the last track-focused GT, with production limited to 67 units. Notably, it pays homage to the original 1967 GT MK IV La Mans-winning race car. The GT MK IV swansong costs £1.4 million (approximately Rs 14,19,57,123).
