At Le Mans in 1967, only a year after Fords historic victory of a 1,2,3 finish, the GT40 achieved yet another victory at the prestigious event.
Well now, customers can celebrate this event with the all new special edition GT which pays tribute to the very car that Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt one that faithful race with.
The ’67 Heritage Edition
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.
“In creating a worthy successor to the ’66 Heritage edition, we logically looked at our next historic Le Mans victory with the all-American team of Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt,” said Dave Pericak, global director, Ford Performance. “The Ford GT ’67 Heritage edition pays homage to that win, with a modern take on one of the most important vehicles in Ford’s storied history of racing.”
“The first Heritage edition car was a huge success, honouring our history with a modern interpretation of the Le Mans winner,” said Garen Nicoghosian, exterior design manager for the car. “Continuing with a Ford GT based on the winning GT40 Mark IV race car was simply something we needed to do.”
