Is there a more awesome car being made in America right now than the Ford GT?
Fresh off winning (and finishing third) the overall GT class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Ford is keeping the celebration going by celebrating another Le Mans winner. The blue oval recently revealed the 2017 Ford GT ‘66 Heritage Edition that pays tribute to the GT40 Mark II driven to victory at Le Mans in 1966 by Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon.
The Heritage Edition features the black and silver stripe livery of the original as well as the Number 2 racing number on the hood and door. The one-piece aluminum wheels are finished in an incredible-looking gold clearcoat that adds a sleek pop of color.
On the interior, the carbon fiber seats are wrapped in black leather, as is the instrument panel. Even the steering wheel is sheathed in leather, just like the car from '66.
Ford did not release any pricing info and announced that the car would only be available in 2017. Considering Ford made would-be buyers fill out an extensive application just for the opportunity to throw down hundreds of thousands of dollars for the GT, we’re guessing getting your hands on one of these will be even more challenging. Perhaps you’ll need to give up your first born.
