Ford GT Heritage Edition Shown

2021 Ford Gt Heritage Edition 06 1800x1800

Ford has revealed a special-edition of its GT supercar to celebrate its Le Mans win. Meet the Ford GT Heritage Edition.

When the Ford GT won the 1966 24 of Le Mans as well as numerous other endurance events, it became a legend. Watch the 2019 Ford v Ferrari film to get an idea of what a momentous achievement this was. Drivers Ken Miles and Lloyd Ruby led a 1-2-3-5 Ford domination at Daytona, kicking off a magical season for the Ford GT40 MK II, with additional 1-2-3 wins at Sebring and Le Mans. Ferrari's dominance in racing was smashed.

To celebrate this iconic moment in motor racing history, the 2021 Ford GT Heritage Edition features a unique paint finish, with an exposed carbon fibre bonnet adding a great contrast to the white bodywork. There are red accents, 98 roundel graphics on the side as well as Heritage Gold 20-inch forged wheels to round off the look. 

Inside, there's black Alcantara suede on the instrument panel and steering wheel. There are also anodized red paddle shifters as well as red performance seats. 

As a reminder, the Ford GT is powered by a twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine delivering 482 kW and 746 Nm. It has a top speed of 348 kph.
