The brand new 2017 Ford GT '66 Heritage Edition is a wonderfully innovative Ford GT vehicle that is designed to commemorate and pay tribute to Ford's epic victory at the 1966 edition of the Le Mans race. The release of this car comes just shortly after Ford picked up a victory in the LM GTE Pro category at Le Mans 2016.

The 2017 Ford GT '66 Heritage Edition vehicle has a stunningly striking appearance thanks to the use of 'shadow black' paint, which users can enjoy in either a gloss or matte finish with silver stripes. An exposed carbon fiber package further adds to the vehicle's impressive appearance, which is rounded off by the lavish forged aluminum wheels sheathed in gold coating.

Considering that Ford is considered to be the gold standard of competitive vehicles at Le Mans, it's only appropriate that this special edition car reflect the brand's heritage by blending 1960s and modern automotive design cues.
