Adding insult to injury of those who couldn’t make it to the shortlist for the new GT super car, Ford has now released a sweet special edition which is even harder to get than the standard version. The Ford GT 66 Heritage Edition honors the Ferrari-beating, Le Mans-winning 1966 GT40 Mark II.
Available in limited quantities for the 2017 model year only, Ford GT 66 Heritage Edition features a number of exclusive interior and exterior highlights which set it apart from the regular version, but could only be of any interest to someone with a deep passion for motorsport. If you are a normal guy, you are not going to find any of the new features particularly tasteful.
The Heritage GT comes with a Shadow Black exterior in either gloss or matte finish with silver stripes and exposed carbon fiber package, Frozen White #2 hood and door graphics, and 20-inch one-piece forged aluminum wheels in a gold satin. Inside, carbon-fiber seats in Ebony leather with pillowed inserts and plow-through stitching, Ford GT logo embossed in the headrests and the wheel, Ebony-leather wrap instrument cluster with gold detailing, exposed matte carbon fiber door sills, air register pods and center console and a serialized identification plate as well as more #2 graphics are the among the main features.
So it seems one would be better off spending the extra money a Ford GT 66 Heritage Edition cost trying to get a standard model through third-party models. That is unless you actually like a black car with gold wheels.
