Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition Revealed
To commemorate their first Le Mans win, Ford has chosen the 1967 victory by A.J.Foyt and Dan Gurney as well as their white and red no 1 GT40 Mark IV with the 2017 Ford GT ’67 Heritage edition.
Known to be one of the most important vehicles in the history of Ford racing cars, the homage to the car is being paid in the form of the Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition.
The limited edition supercar will have a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces almost 650 horsepower and around 750 Nm Torque. The car weighs just 1,385 kg, allowing it to reach a top speed of just about 350 km/h.
The change in the car comes from the difference in the form of race-number graphics, as well as unique interior colours and materials. The 20-inch aluminium wheels have also been given a unique finish apart from the Carbon Fibre seats getting a contrasting red stitching, just like the steering wheel.
Some other touch-ups include anodised grey paddle shifters used for the seven-speed manual gearbox. Every Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition will have an obligatory plaque along with a unique identification number.
There is no word yet from Ford as to how many units of the Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition will be made available, but it can be viewed using this online configuration tool.
