Ford has unveiled a new Heritage Edition of its GT supercar that’s inspired by the original car’s victory in racing.
It’s the latest in a series of Heritage Edition models built to celebrate the GT’s past successes, with this new version being inspired by the car’s first endurance win at the 1966 Daytona 24 Hour Continental race.
The model is inspired by the bold white, black and red colour scheme of the 1966 race-winning Ford GT40, with this new GT being painted in Frozen White paint with exposed carbon fibre and Race Red accents on the front end, roof, wing and driver’s door. It also features gold 20-inch forged-aluminum wheels, red Brembo brake callipers and unique Ford graphics to make it stand out from ‘standard’ GTs.
The same colour theme extends to the cabin as well, with a mix of red and black Alcantara featuring throughout.
An optional ‘Heritage Upgrade Package’ is also available, which brings exposed carbon fibre wheels with a red-painted barrel, along with black brake callipers.
The Heritage Edition is available on the 2021 model year Ford GT, which will be 55 years since the race win at Daytona.
Elsewhere, Ford is introducing a new GT Studio Collection, which gives lucky customers access to new graphics and colours for greater exclusivity.
The Ford GT features a 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine producing 651bhp, which enables a 0-60mph time of just three seconds. The GT is available in limited numbers, with production for Ford’s supercar set to end in 2022.Enquire on a new Ford
