Hennessey Performance has just had their brand-new 2018 Ford GT delivered, and it sure is a looker. Thier new American supercar joins the company’s previous generation Ford GT.
The red example of the Ford GT that Hennessey ordered comes in the Heritage Edition livery. This livery harks back to the historic 1967 Le Mans winner that was driven by Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt.
The livery consists of a glossy Race Red finish with white stripes and, of course, the carbon fiber package. On the side and on the hood in the Frozen White circle is the No.1 graphics. The exterior also features the 20-inch one-piece forged aluminum wheels in silver satin clearcoat with contrasting black lug nuts.
“In creating a worthy successor to the 2017 Heritage edition, we logically looked at our next historic Le Mans victory with the all-American team of Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt,” said Dave Pericak, global director Ford Performance. “The 2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage edition pays homage to that win, with a modern take on one of the most important vehicles in Ford’s storied history of racing.”
Hennessey says that they will be posting up plenty of photos, videos, and reviews in the coming weeks. Although, I’m still waiting on word that they’ll be tuning this car. Their website has plans for customer Ford GT upgrades, including high flow air induction systems, engine management tuning upgrades, high-flow intercooler systems, exhaust system upgrades, twin turbo system upgrades, engine upgrades and more. Maybe we’ll be seeing an upgraded twin-turbo 2018 GT in the near future!
