Ford is celebrating a landmark moment in the company’s motorsports history with the 2021 Ford GT Heritage Edition.
We all remember how Ford beat Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. But before that, in 1966, Ken Miles and Lloyd Ruby had won the Daytona 24-Hour Continental race in the GT40.
The new Heritage Edition is finished in the same livery as the Daytona-winning GT40. It has a black hood and stripes, red patches and the No. 98 on the sides. It is available with either a set of Heritage Gold 20-inch one-piece forged aluminium wheels or a carbon fiber wheels if you tick the Heritage Upgrade Package option. The interior is wrapped in Alcantara.
Ford is likely to build the 2021 Ford GT Heritage Edition in limited numbers, each powered by a 3.5-liter, twin-turbo V6 engine producing 660 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission
