2017 Ford GT ’66 Heritage Edition Remembers Le Mans Wins
Back in 1966, the Ford GT40 Mark II driven by Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon came in first place at the Le Mans 24-hour endurance race, ahead of two other GT40’s taking their respective spots on the podium for a 1-2-3 sweep. Now, with this year marking fifty years since the historic win, Ford’s taking their latest GT and giving it a ’66 Heritage Edition run, giving it a shadow black exterior finish in either matte or gloss and fitting it with silver stripes and frozen white “No. 2” graphics on the hood and doors. The super car sits on 20-inch forged aluminum wheels that are done up in gold satin. Inside, we get ebony leather atop the carbon fiber seats as well as gold detailing in the instrument panel, seat x-brace, and shift paddles.
The Ford GT ’66 Heritage Edition will be offered up in limited quantities for the 2017 model year only. Check it out in the gallery above.
