In an effort to reduce weight and improve performance even further, Ford has introduced an all-new carbon-fibre wheel. The new Ford GT carbon-fibre wheel design offers enhancements to Ford’s original design, which made its debut on the 2015 Shelby GT350R Mustang.
“Ford was the innovator as the first to offer a mass-produced carbon fiber wheels as a standard offering on Shelby GT350R Mustang. Now, Ford GT will offer the next generation in carbon fiber wheels, with an advanced resin and fiber technology that gives our designers more freedom, while also showcasing the structure of the material’s weave.” – Dave Pericak, Ford Performance global director
