As the Ford GT enters its final year of production, Ford sends off the GT by creating the ’64 Prototype Heritage Edition. This limited edition supercar is a tribute to the 1964 Ford GT prototypes that won LeMans in the 1960s.
“This is the first Ford GT Heritage Edition that goes beyond celebrating race wins – this one goes deep, and honors the earliest of Ford supercar heritage,” said Mike Severson, Ford GT program manager. “The Ford GT ’64 Prototype Heritage Edition is a modern interpretation of the original, with no mistaking what this car is paying tribute to.”
Reminiscent of the 1964 GT, the 2022 ’64 Prototype Heritage Edition will feature Wimbledon White paint, triple racing stripes, and Antimatter Blue-painted carbon fiber wheels. Exposed carbon fiber is also applied to the front splitter, side sills, mirror stalks, and engine louvers. Silver Brembo brake calipers with black graphics and black lug nuts are other modern touches added to the GT.
Inside, drivers are greeted by a wealth of carbon fiber, including carbon fiber door sills, lower A-pillars, and console. Lightspeed Blue Alcantara-draped carbon fiber seats with silver stitching cradle the driver. The instrument panel is adorned in black leather and Lightspeed Blue Alcantara and pillars and headliner are swathed in black Alcantara. Antimatter Blue accents are featured on the instrument panel, door register bezels, and seat X-brace. Other nice touches include a black Alcantara steering wheel with black stitching and clear and polished paddle shifters.
The 2022 Ford GT is available to order for approved Ford GT customers, with production expected to begin in January. Click on ford.com/performance/gt for more information.
