Ford GT 66 Heritage Edition is Ford's way of honoring their supercar history!
|   Wednesday, August 03, 2016
Even more exclusive than the Ford GT, here is the limited edition 66 Heritage Edition in honor of the winning GT40 at Le Mans half a century ago.

It was fifty years ago when Ford GT40 won its first 24 Hours of Le Mans (with a hat-trick in the key). Ten days have passed since the new Ford GT did the same in the GT class, always with Ferrari in the sidekick role. If the relationship is not obvious enough between the two cars, the GT will make another tribute to its forerunner with a special series 66 Heritage Edition.


This will regain the black livery with silver bands of the GT40 MkII 2 that won half a century ago in Sarthe, with New Zealander Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon. The black can be matte or glossy, as desired. On the front hood and doors, there will be a sticker bearing the number two in black on white background. This exclusive GT will have 20-inch wheels slightly gilded with satin finish and black bolts.

The dashboard, the windshield support and the seats will be coated in Ebony leather. The interior will be enlivened with a few gold accents on the control board, gear box and on the structure of the headrest while the safety belts will be blue, as the GT40 in 1966. And let's not forget a little raw carbon as befits any supercar today.

Ford has not confirmed the number of copies of the 66 Heritage edition that will be produced in 2017, but merely stated that there will be "limited quantities". One thing is certain, even with ad hoc finances, it will not be easy to get your hands on one of these copies, since Ford has already implemented a drastic bid program for the 500 cars that will be produced over the next two years.
