“In creating a worthy successor to the 2017 Heritage edition, we logically looked at our next historic Le Mans victory with the all-American team of Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt,” said Dave Pericak, global director Ford Performance. “The 2018 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 ’67 Heritage edition is finished in Race Red paint with white stripes and exposed carbon fiber package. The car also features white Number 1 hood and door graphics, 20-inch silver satin wheels with black lug nuts, and red brake calipers.
The interior features new leather trimming for the carbon fiber seats with red accent stitching. A serial number plate, along with exposed matte carbon fiber door sills, air register pods, and center console round out the package.
“The first Heritage edition car was a huge success, honoring our history with a modern interpretation of the Le Mans winner,” said Garen Nicoghosian, exterior design manager for the car. “Continuing with a 2018 Ford GT based on the winning GT40 Mark IV race car was simply something we needed to do.”
