Those ordering a new 2018 Ford GT, Ford Performance will now be offering one more livery. This livery harks back to the historic 1967 Le Mans winner that was driven by Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt.

“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.”

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 lugnuts.

Inside is new leather trimming, carbon fiber seats with red stitching, red seatbelts, and satin dark stainless features on the doorsill, air vents and center console.

“The first Heritage edition car was a huge success, honoring our history with a modern interpretation of the Le Mans winner,” said Garen Nicoghosian, exterior design manager for the car. “Continuing with a 2018 Ford GT based on the winning GT40 Mark IV race car was simply something we needed to do.”
