Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition Pays Tribute to Le Mans WinnerAugust 15th, 2017
If the 650 hp, $450,000+ Ford GT weren’t awesome enough all on its own, now Ford Performance has gone and made it look even better, with a slick livery which pays homage to the Le Mans winning ’67 Ford GT40 Mk. IV.
The gorgeous 2018 model Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition features a brilliantly glossy red paint with white racing stripes, and “1” race number graphics to commemorate the race winner, driven to victory by Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt at the 1967 24 Hours of Le Mans, and handing Ferrari second and third place. Ford’s other GT40 (#2) came in fourth place.
The ’67 Heritage edition also gets 20″ forged aluminum wheels with black lug nuts, red brake calipers, and silver mirror caps. Inside, the carbon fiber seats get leather trim with red stitching, along with red seatbelt webbing, and sleek anodized grey paddle shifters. The car also gets a unique serialized ID plate, exposed matte carbon fiber on its door sills, center console, and air register pods.
Ford only plans on making a limited number of the cars, which has always been the case with the GT, so that’s no surprise.
