Called the ’67 Heritage Edition, it follows a trend set by last year’s ’66 heritage model by taking inspiration from the GT40 racer that won at Le Mans 50 years earlier.
The ’67 car is finished in the colours of the red and white GT40 MkIV (see gallery and video below) that beat Ferrari to victory under the control of star American drivers Dan Gurney and AJ Foyt. It wears two white stripes and number one decals, and sits on bespoke 20in one-piece forged aluminium wheels that are painted in satin silver.
Inside, the theme continues with red stitching on the car’s leather-covered carbonfibre seats and steering wheel, plus red seatbelts. The GT's racing credentials are emphasised with exposed carbonfibre on the door sills, vent surrounds and centre console.
No mechanical changes have been made, meaning the '67 Heritage Edition retains a twin-turbo 3.5-litre Ecoboost V6 engine with 647bhp that drives the rear wheels via a Getrag seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
The model's arrival will have no impact on global allocations, meaning orders for British buyers will form part of the overall allocation of 25 cars per year for this market. No pricing has been announced, but expect a healthy increase on the £420,000 required for the regular GT.
