Pays tribute to the 1966 GT40 Mark II which was driven to victory by Bruce McLaren.

Ford is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its iconic 1-2-3 win at Le Mans by introducing the 2017 GT ’66 Heritage Edition.

Designed to pay tribute to the 1966 GT40 Mark II which was driven to victory by Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon, the limited edition model features a Shadow Black exterior with either a gloss or matte finish.  The car has also been equipped with silver stripes, a carbon fiber styling package, and Frozen White "#2" graphics.  Rounding out the changes are 20-inch forged aluminum wheels with a gold satin finish that is contrasted by black lug nuts.

The unique styling continues in the cabin as designers installed carbon-fiber seats with Ebony leather upholstery and pillowed inserts.  Drivers will also find matte carbon fiber trim, an individually-numbered plaque, and special seat belts with a blue webbing that recalls the ones used on the 1966 race car.  Lastly, there are gold accents on the instrument panel, the seat X-braces, and paddle shifters.

According to Ford chief technical officer Raj Nair, “The 2017 Ford GT ’66 Heritage Edition is a stunning tribute to the car that kicked off Ford’s string of Le Mans victories in 1966.”
