Does Hennessey Have Any Plans For His New Ford GT Heritage Edition?

Supercar

Like making a fast car faster.

John Hennessey, owner and founder of Hennessey Performance, has made a career out of making fast cars even faster. His catalogue of accomplishments is thick and bound to expand thanks to, for example, the upcoming production version of the Venom F5. Not to mention, the dozens upon dozens of performance upgrade kits for more “mainstream” offerings like Ford Mustangs, Chevy Camaros, and Dodge Challengers. So it really come as no surprise that Hennessey was selected by Ford to own a brand new 2018 GT supercar.

Of course this wasn’t just any Ford GT, but rather a Heritage Edition model, making an already rare vehicle even more special. This particular GT Heritage Edition commemorates Ford’s 1967 Le Mans victory with the all-American team of Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt at the helm.

What’s more, this GT has a very low build number, so its value is guaranteed to increase in the years ahead. Now, given Hennessey’s history of modifications, it begs the question whether he and his crew will tinker with the GT’s twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6? Honestly, we doubt it. Why bother messing with perfection? Then again, if there was any aftermarket tuning firm considering to alter the Ford GT from its stock form, we’d recommend Hennessey Performance for the gig. But something tells us John Hennessey will enjoy the GT as is and take it to events like Cars and Coffee for others to enjoy as well.
