A special edition marks Ford’s Le Mans win

As its name makes clear, the new Ford GT '66 Heritage Edition commemorates the company's outright victory in the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans, rather than the GTE Pro class win in this year's race.

Black paintwork, silver stripes and #2 graphics recall the GT40 Mk. II that New Zealanders Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon drove to first place fifty years ago. A unique gold satin clearcoat finish on the 20” forged alloy wheels further adds to the retro look.

Inside, matte carbon fibre adorns the centre console, while black leather covers the instrument panel, door pillars, headlining and carbon fibre seats. Blue seatbelts, as well as gold-coloured dashboard trim pieces and seat cross-braces, provide some contrast.

Although Ford hasn't quoted an exact figure, production of the GT '66 Heritage Edition is going to be limited. Each example will have an exclusive numbered build plate.
