► Ford GT 1967 Heritage edition
► Unique paint scheme, numbers
► Limited edition on launch cars
The new £450,000 Ford GT supercar is being offered at launch with a limited-edition paint job to celebrate the Blue Oval's 1967 win at Le Mans.
The red-and-white striped livery nods to the GT40 Mk4 race car driven by Dan Gurney and AJ Foyt. Upgrades include:
- Race Red paint scheme
- White stripes on bonnet, boot, rear deck
- Exposed carbonfibre details
- 20-inch forged alloys, black wheelnuts
- Red brake callipers, silver door mirror caps
- Red stitching on leather seats and steering wheel
- Red seatbelts
- Stainless appliqués on instruments and doors
Mechanically, the GT is unchanged, meaning a bi-turbo 3.5-litre V6 with 647bhp and 550lb ft of torque. Performance figures stand at 2.8sec 0-62mph and 216mph.
How many Ford GT Heritage editions will be sold?
No official word yet, which is bizarre for a self-proclaimed limited edition. Buyers like to know such models have a finite volume, as it'll help protect their long-term appeal (and value).
'In creating a worthy successor to the ’66 Heritage edition, we logically looked at our next historic Le Mans victory with the all-American team of Dan Gurney and AJ Foyt,' said Dave Pericak, global director of Ford Performance. 'The Ford GT ’67 Heritage edition pays homage to that win, with a modern take on one of the most important vehicles in Ford’s storied history of racing.'
