The new car, which will be launched with the 2017 model year GT, features bespoke interior and exterior colour themes and a satin gold wheel finish that mimics the look of the original 1966 winner of Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon.
The new car’s exterior colour is called Shadow Black and it is available in either a gloss or matte finish, with silver stripes and an exposed carbonfibre package also available.
The race number of the ’66 winner is also displayed on the bonnet and doors, and the car sits on a set of single-piece 20in wheels complete with black wheel nuts.
Inside, the Heritage Edition’s carbonfibre seats are wrapped in ebony leather with pillowed inserts and plow-through stitching to create a classic look, and there are Ford GT logos on the head rests and steering wheel.
The seats and instrument panel have the same satin gold finish as the car’s wheels, and the car’s seat belts feature a unique blue webbing like the original 1966 racer.
No changes have been made to the car’s chassis set-up or drivetrain, so the Heritage Edition makes do with the same twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 engine as the regular car.
Each Heritage Edition gets a unique identification plate to signify its build number. The model will only be available with the 2017 GT, which itself is limited to 250 units.
