Featured Ford Announces Limited Edition GT 66 Heritage Edition Recoil Staff June 28, 2016 Join the Conversation Is this what you need for your bugout wheels or an urban assault vehicle? Prob'ly not — but boy she looks good! Yesterday Ford announced the release of their 2017 GT 66 Heritage Edition. They say it's to pay homage to the car driven to victory by Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon in the 1966 Le Mans. To honor that GT40 Mk II, the new Heritage Edition will feature exclusive race-number graphics, unique interior colors, black and silver stripe livery and an exclusive wheel finish. Here's what Ford tells us. Ford Announces Limited Edition GT 66 Heritage Edition The Ford GT ’66 Heritage Edition features a Shadow Black exterior in either gloss or matte finish with silver stripes and exposed carbon fiber package. The car sports Frozen White #2 hood and door graphics, and 20-inch one-piece forged aluminum wheels in a gold satin clearcoat with black lug nuts. The interior of the limited edition model wraps the Ford GT carbon-fiber seats in Ebony leather, with pillowed inserts and plow-through stitching, and the seats’ head restraints and the steering wheel are debossed with the Ford GT logo. The instrument panel, pillars and headliner also features an Ebony-leather wrap, with gold appliqués on the instrument panel, the seat’s X-brace and shift paddles. Like the 1966 race car, the steering wheel is leather wrapped, with seat belts featuring a unique blue webbing. Rounding out the modifications to the Ford GT ’66 Heritage Edition are a unique serialized identification plate, the #2 interior door graphic, and exposed matte carbon fiber door sills, air register pods and center console. Garen Nicoghosian, exterior design manager for the car, says the team set out to highlight where it all started with the Ford GT. “While the looks are distinctly based on the GT40 Mark II race car,” he says, “we’ve accentuated new styling cues to provide a modern interpretation.” You can check it out in more detail using their configuration tool if you're interested. There is no option for equipping your ride with 66 in. rocket pods or ejector seats, but it's still a pretty sweet looking ride. Ford Performance is on Instagram, @fordperformance.
