Ford GT: Hommage to Le Mans

The Ford GT will be available in a new limited-edition Heritage theme honouring the GT40 Mark IV race car driven to victory by Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt 50 years ago at Le Mans in 1967. The car will feature unique interior and exterior colour themes, and an exclusive wheel finish.

Dave Pericak, global director, Ford Performance says: “The Ford GT ’67 Heritage edition pays homage to one of the most important vehicles in Ford’s storied history of racing.”

The Ford GT ’67 Heritage edition features a gloss-finish Race Red exterior with white stripes and exposed carbon package. The car sports Frozen White No. 1 hood and door graphics, and 20-inch one-piece forged aluminum wheels in silver satin clearcoat with black wheel nuts. Red callipers and silver rearview mirror caps complete the look.

The interior features new leather trimming for the carbon fibre seats, with red accent stitching, which carries over to the steering wheel. The seat belt webbing is now red and the paddle shifters are anodised grey. Satin dark stainless appliqués are used on the instrument panel, door register bezels and x-brace.

Each ’67 Heritage edition car also features a unique serialised identification plate, plus exposed matte carbon fibre door sills, air register pods and centre console.

The Ford GT ’67 Heritage edition can be viewed at FordGT.com using the configuration tool. Limited quantities will be available for the forthcoming model year.
