Visible carbon fibre is the focal point of the exterior and can be found on the wheels, racing stripes, A-pillars, and lower body panels. The mirror caps, centre stripe, and calipers can be had in four optional accent colours—silver, orange, red or blue. The only exterior colour available is charcoal grey.On the inside, you’ll find a unique pattern on the steering wheel and seats with contrast silver stitching, clear anodized paddle shifters, and Carbon Edition instrument panel badges. The exposed carbon fibre finds its way onto the sills, centre console and air register pods.“This is just another example of how we listen to our customers at Ford,” says Lance Mosley, marketing manager, Ford Performance.“While the Ford GT Competition model appeals to hardcore racing enthusiasts, we found more customers asking for more exposed carbon fibre with the air conditioning and radio still intact. So we developed the Carbon Series to satisfy that need while providing a distinct look.” COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS PlayThe Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car everPlay3 common new car problems (and how to prevent them) | Maintenance Advice | Driving.caPlayFinal 5 Minivan Contenders | Driving.caPlay2021 Volvo XC90 Recharge | Ministry of Interior Affairs | Driving.caPlayThe 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is a new take on Canada’s fave truck | Driving.caPlayBuying a used Toyota Tundra?
