This is the new Ford GT’68 Heritage edition in its Heritage Blue and Heritage Orange colour scheme. This colour scheme honours the Gulf Oil sponsored racing Ford GT40….which won the Le Mans race back-to-back in 1968 and 1969.
The limited build GT’68 Heritage edition has a serialised identification plate, matte carbon fibre door sills, blue and orange stitching on both the steering wheel and seats, unique dark stainless 20-inch one-piece forged alloy wheels and orange brake calipers.
Joe Hinrichs, Ford executive vice president and president, global operations said,
“Many say the Gulf Oil paint scheme is the most famous in motorsports, propelled by the 1968 GT40 that quickly became a global sensation after Ford beat its European competitors not three, but four times in a row. We set out to accentuate the new Ford GT’s race-inspired aerodynamic lines with the Gulf colours, while staying true to the original GT40 Le Mans winner.”
Limited quantities will be available for the model year 2019 and 2020.
