We reported on January 5 that Ford was planning on bringing a new option to the GT500 to split the difference between the Handling Pack and the Carbon Fiber Track Pack. Today reports suggest that the package will cost $10,000.
The information comes thanks to an order form shared with Musclecarsandtrucks by a customer. That price point would make the new “Carbon Fiber Handling Package” considerably less expensive than the $18,500 Carbon Fiber Track Pack, but would be equally considerably more expensive than the $1,500 Handling Pack.
For your $10,000, you would get, arguably, the CFTP’s highlight feature, the carbon fiber wheels. Whereas they are finished so that you can see the weave of the carbon fiber in that package, though, they would be painted black for the CFHP.
The new package, though, leaves the rear seats in place and fits the less extreme Pilot Sport 4S tires to the painted wheels. Those who order the CFTP will also get exclusive access to the the exposed carbon instrument panel and the massive GT4-style wing.
The CFHP will get adjustable strut top mounts and a catch can, like on the track pack, while the Handling Pack’s Gurney flap and splitter wickers will also come installed.
New for 2021, the GT500 will also, apparently, get a couple of new colors. With Antimatter Blue Metallic, Carbonized Gray Metallic, and Grabber Yellow joining the options sheet, four colors will also be removed. They are Grabber Lime, Kona Blue, Magnetic, and Wimbledon White.
