Once upon a time, Ford tried to purchase Ferrari with the intention of turning them into a performance and racing sub-brand. Ford was denied and, in order to get even for getting stiffed, the GT program was born – with an aim toward winning the Le Mans 24-hour. Now, to honor the Mark IV GT40 that won the famous endurance race, Ford is introducing their ’67 Heritage Edition GT.
Emblazoned with the very same livery the championship car bore in 1967, this new edition is both a knowing nod to the past and a monument to how far the brand has come. The limited upgrades to this particular version include No. 1 hood and door racing graphics, leather trimming on carbon fiber seats, red accent trimming throughout the interior, red brake calipers, silver rearview mirror caps, and a unique serialized identification plate on every example built. With all this flash and bravado, the ’67 Heritage Edition GT is fitting throwback.
