Ford GT '66 Heritage Edition Pays Homage To Ford's 1966 Le Mans Victory

Written By:

The Ford GT 40 was a race car built with one purpose in mind, end Ferrari's dominance at the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race. In 1966, the GT 40 Mark II achieved that goal with a historic 1-2-3 victory at the iconic race. 

To celebrate that iconic victories, Ford will offer an extra rare variant of the upcoming GT supercar called the '66 Heritage Edition. The Ford GT '66 Heritage Edition will be an option available only to buyers of the 2017 model year version of the Ford GT.

The '66 Heritage Edition features Shadow Black exterior paint in either a matte or gloss finish along with silver racing stripes running down the centre of the car.

Also present are No. 2 decals on the doors and on the car's bonnet which reference the winning car from the 1966 race driven by Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon.

Inside, the car has carbon fibre seats wrapped up in quilted ebony leather.

Blue seatbelts pay homage to the ones found on the old race car and there are gold accents on multiple parts of the interior including the paddle shifters.

Ford recently returned to the Le Mans endurance race with the new Ford GT race car and won the LM GTE Pro category.
