The Ford GT is Ford’s Le Mans car for the road, and as such, is pretty hardcore.

But even the most hardcore cars have room to improve, and in 2020, Ford said the GT will get a couple of big upgrades – including a bump in horsepower, a standard titanium exhaust system, and two new appearance options.

Ford announcedthe changes on Thursday, saying the roughly $500,000 GT will go from 647 horsepower to 660 horsepower for 2020 in addition to its other upgrades. Buyers will also get a chance at two appearance options, including a “Liquid Carbon” one and a restyled heritage livery that harkens back to the famous Gulf racing scheme and Ford’s GT40 race car.

The GT is already limited, as Ford requires prospective owners to apply for the chance to own it, and these new appearance packages will be even harder to acquire. The manufacturer plans to roll out around 12 examples per year of the Liquid Carbon edition, along with approximately 50 Heritage Editions this year, according to a Ford spokesperson who spoke with Road & Track.

A new throwback Gulf Racing livery pays homage to the 1968 and 1969 Le Mans-winning GT40 race car, which the GT itself honors.

Buyers who’d like to add a little flair to their GT can opt for a single stripe, or dual stripes down the middle.

Across the board, the GT’s 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 gets 13 more horses for 2020, bumping total horsepower to a claimed 660.

New buttress air ducts and larger intercoolers keep the 2020 GT’s engine cooler and enhance performance, according to Ford.

And a newly standard titanium exhaust system offers a nine-pound weight savings when compared with the outgoing system.
