Get the Garage Ready! 2017 Ford GT ’66 Heritage Edition is Here
The anxious Ford GT faithful now have something to cheer about! Deliveries of the 2017 Ford GT ’66 Heritage Edition are happening. When the launch of this tribute edition was announced in June 2016, car enthusiasts clamored to get one of these beautiful sports cars. Hopefully you got your order in, because 2017 is the only model year being produced.
The design pays homage to the classic Le Mans GT 40 Mark II racer that swept the grueling race back in 1966. With Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon at the wheel, this phenomenal car blew past the competition on its way to the top of the podium. It is the car that started Ford’s string of wins and put the sports car world on notice.
To paraphrase Ford founder Henry Ford, “You can have this car in any color you wish as long as it is black”. Designers of the 2017 ’66 Heritage Edition must have taken this mantra to heart since this super sports car comes in only one color, Shadow Black (but you can choose between a matte or high gloss finish). Silver strips highlight the curved body while gold-wheels hint at the only color these cars are used to winning. To further show off its racing pedigree, there is a “2” emblazoned on the hood and doors.
With the new 2017 Ford GT rolling off the production line, interest and appreciation for these incredible cars has only grown. Clocked at a top speed of 216 mph, the Ford GT is the fastest car the Blue Oval has ever built. Now, with the release of the 2017 ’66 Heritage Edition, the GT brand has come full circle. “Celebrating the anniversary of Ford’s historic victories at Le Mans has always been a part of the return of the Ford GT,” Raj Nair, Ford Executive V.P. of Product Development and Chief Technical Officer says in a recent statement. Honoring the past, Ford is wetting the appetites of those lucky enough to get one of these cars. The wait is almost over, folks! Get those garages ready.
