You know the story of the GT40, the Le Mans winner and recent movie star, but have you heard of the prototype GT70? Maybe not if you’re from outside the UK.
The idea was for Ford of Europe to replicate the success the GT40 program had on the track, but on the rally stage, following a string of wins for the Escort throughout the 1960s. The problem, and why the car might be so little-known, was that to qualify for rally competition according to FIA regulations, a car had to have a minimum production run of 500 homologated cars. The GT70 had six. It fell victim to circumstance; the WRC rules changed, production costs climbed, and the Escort continued to improve performance, making the GT70 an expensive “what if?”
— Official description [1]

The 1970 Ford GT70 - abbreviated as Ford GT '70 - is a RWD sports car by Ford featured in Forza Horizon 4 since Update 24.

Synopsis

The Ford GT70 was designed to compete against the Renault Alpine A110 1600s and Porsche 911 in the Group 4 class of the World Rally Championship.

Prior to the official release of the GT70, the car was made an unmarked model, with only a silver paintjob and Ford logos remaining. Whether this was intentional remains unknown.

Drivetrain

The GT70 featured in Forza Horizon 4 is a restored model with a non-stock two liter Cosworth BDA engine.[2]

Platform

Similar to its targeted rivals, the GT70 is a light mid-engine car that weighs only 1680 lb (762 kg) thanks to a fibreglass body.[3]
