History Needs To Be
Only one Le Mans supersports car stands out in American racing history: the Ford GT. On this occasion, Ford celebrates its success in 2021 with two new editions inspired by this 1966 champion. The first is the Heritage Edition and the second is the all-new Studio Collection, which offers exclusive design enhancements.
"With this Heritage edition, Ford Performance has gone deeper into the history of the Ford GT and created a limited edition model that stylistically honors the 55th anniversary of the 24-hour Daytona Endurance Race, which will ultimately lead to our success at Le Mans," explains Ford Program Manager GT Mike Severson "In addition, for customers who want to pick up a carbon fiber body and functional cooling ducts that help achieve Le Mans-awarded performance, the Ford GT Studio Collection offers another new way for GT fans to customize their supercar."
The Heritage Edition is inspired by the same car that Ken Miles and Lloyd Ruby drove when they not only won but also dominated Dayton. The new car is exterior in white, black, and red. The exposed carbon fiber bonnet adds striking contrast, while the visual feast adds to the highlight of Race Red on the front panel and roof, on the driver's door, and under the rear wing. For those who want to add the distinctive look to the functional cooling ducts used for the Ford GT 2021, they can turn to the GT Studio collection, which comes with a brand new graphics package and customizable colors.
"The combination of stripes and accents evokes the emotion of speed and draws attention to some of the GT's most striking features," says Garen Nicoghosian, Multimatic's design head who worked with Ford Performance on the package. " that guides your eye through the vehicle. "The 1966 Ford Champion's celebration is a welcome sight for both racing enthusiasts and historians.
