The Last Chapter of the 2005 Ford GT

The GT1, a motorsports homage to the Ford GT utilizing the final 30 chassis of the venerable 2005 Ford GT.

Matech GT1 Lineage

Scrutinous attention to detail was paid to execute the GT1 around the Matech GT1 FIA homologation filing and production tooling.  Suspension hardpoints, geometry and kinematics were followed as a basis for the GT1.  Matech’s victories and championships in the GT3 series were the pedigree for the GT1 development.  The GT1 is built from the original tooling of the Matech GT1.

The Last 30 Chassis

The GT1 team acquired the last 30 remaining chassis that were stored for over 15 years by Ford Performance since being produced in 2005.  They were crated and stored in a climate conditioned warehouse and look as fresh as when they came off production tools.  Each chassis will be authenticated by Ford Performance for each buyer.

Unparalleled Performance

The GT1 was engineered by a team of former Ford engineers to be the most raucous, visceral and committed execution of the Ford GT to date.   With aggressive and optimized aerodynamics and a race-bred suspension, the GT1 will dominate club sports tracks.  Garrett ball-bearing G30-770 turbos capable of 1,540 horsepower provide motivation unlike no other.

Dressed in Carbon Fiber

The GT1 leveraged the original Matech body molds, which were refurbished, improved and modified for production.  The entire body is produced in bespoke hand-laid large weave carbon fiber for extensive weight savings.  Kevlar also reinforces high impact surfaces including the front splitter.

Unrelentless Power

The GT1 powertrain was developed with the assistance of Ford Performance, and utilizes fortified parts and upgrades throughout.  The GT1 has a header-back titanium exhaust system which feeds twin Garrett G30-770 turbos with external wastegates. The intake system was developed from a clean sheet and incorporates an integral water-to-air intercooler with a core volume almost 3x the GT500.
