2017 Ford GT ’66 Heritage EditionJune 27th, 2016
Ford is showing off a sweet homage edition of the all-new 2017 Ford GT. This special edition is called the Ford GT ’66 Heritage Edition and the car pays homage to the livery worn by the historic Ford GT 40 Mark II racecar that won Le Mans in 1966.
The exterior is in a matte finish Shadow Black with Frozen White #2 hood stripes and door graphics. The car also includes a unique interior and exclusive wheel finish. The 20-inch forged aluminum wheels are done in a surprisingly subtle gold satin clear coat with black lug nuts.
The instrument panel also gets gold touches, and the steering wheel is wrapped in leather just as the racing car was in 1966. The seats are in ebony leather with pillowed inserts, and seatbelts with bright blue webbing. It’s unclear exactly how limited the car will be, given that very few Ford GTs are being made to begin with.
