Just look at it.
It was only a matter of time until Ford offered another special racing-focused edition of its GT supercar. Introducing the 2018 Ford GT '67 Heritage Edition, featuring a gorgeous red-and-white-stripe livery that celebrates the 1967 Le Mans-winning (and Ferrari beating) GT40 Mark IV endurance racer. Icons Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt were behind the wheel of the original and took her home for a victory. The GT’s mechanicals remain untouched from the “standard” GT, but the '67 Heritage Edition obviously comes with plenty of unique cosmetic touches.
For starters, that exterior paint job, a high-gloss finish Race Red with white stripes and exposed carbon fiber. It also proudly displays Frozen White No. 1 graphics on the hood and door. The wheels are 20-inch one-piece forged aluminum in a silver satin clearcoat with black lug nuts. Also note the red calipers and silver rearview mirror caps. Step inside and the familiar GT interior will warmly welcome you, only this time it’s a bit more special. The carbon fiber seats sport a new leather trim complete with red accent stitching. The steering wheel also receives the same treatment. Look closely and you’ll notice the seat belt webbing is now red and even the paddle shifters are anodized gray.
There’s also some stainless steel trim on the instrument panel, door register bezels and x-brace. Exposed matte carbon fiber door sills have also been included. And, of course, each GT '67 Heritage Edition comes with a serialized identification plate. "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." Pricing wasn’t announced but sales will begin shortly.
