The Ford GT 1967 Heritage edition is a limited-edition supercar with a Heritage scheme that pays homage to the GT40 Mark IV race car driven to victory by Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt at Le Mans in 1967 and is now available to purchase. The car will feature unique interior and exterior colour themes, and an exclusive wheel finish.
Dave Pericak, global director, Ford Performance said, “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,”. He also stated that “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 Ford GT 1967 Heritage edition will feature 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 are also part of the package.
The cabin features new leather trimming for the carbon-fibre seats, with red accent stitching and a matching steering wheel. The seat belt webbing is now red and the paddle shifters are anodised grey. Satin dark stainless appliqués have been used on the instrument panel, door register bezels and x-brace.
Completing the modifications to the 1967 Heritage edition car are a unique serialised identification plate, exposed matte carbon-fibre door sills, air register pods and centre console.
“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. He added by saying, “Continuing with a Ford GT based on the winning GT40 Mark IV race car was simply something we needed to do.”
