The 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition Pays Homage to a Performance Legend

2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition
The 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 1968 and 1969 Le Mans-winning GT40, and it certainly lives up to that legacy. All of these cars are built to order, so while there are no precise Ford GT Heritage Edition production numbers, you can bet they’ll be tough to find.

Ford GT Heritage Edition Legacy

A huge portion of drivers view the Gulf Oil paint scheme as the most famous in motorsports. That blend of Heritage Blue and Heritage Orange led to numerous imitators, but nothing ever quite came close to the originator.

In 1968, it was the GT40 that beat its European competitors on the track four times in a row. That makes it one of a handful of individual cars to achieve repeat victories in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. In the words of Joe Hinrichs, Ford president, global operations, “We’re paying fresh tribute to the original with a new heritage limited edition.”

Ford GT Heritage Design

The 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition is going to attract instant attention thanks to its paint job alone, but there’s more here than blue and orange. Optional exposed carbon fiber accents are available for the first time ever, and you can get No. 9 graphics on the hood and doors.

Take a closer look and you’ll find exposed carbon fiber A-pillars. Look down and find 20-inch one-piece forged aluminum wheels in high-gloss dark stainless with black lug nuts. The body is accented by orange calipers and silver rearview mirror caps

Ford GT Heritage Interior

With Ebony Alcantara across the seats, instrument panel, pillars, headliner, and steering wheel, the Ford GT Heritage can provide comfort through Spring just as easily as it turns heads around The Woodlands.

Contrast blue and orange stitching accentuates the design, and there’s a new seat embossment inspired by the original 1968 Le Mans-winning car. Taking a cue from previous models, the new Ford GT Heritage comes with a unique serialized identification plate.
