Ford GT Heritage Edition: Homage to the prototypes

In 1964 Ford presented a prototype of the Ford GT for the first time at the New York International Auto Show. For the final year of production of the current GT, Ford is now launching a Heritage Edition as a tribute.

With the limited Ford GT Heritage Edition, which can be ordered now, the Ford designers were inspired by those Ford GT prototypes from 1964. The "Ford GT '64 Prototype Heritage Edition" will make its debut as part of the "Monterey Car Week" in California, which has already begun. One example will be in the spotlight there along with the only surviving 1964 Ford GT prototype (GT/105) - of the original five built - which incidentally still has its original livery.

Oldie color scheme

The 'Ford GT '64 Prototype Heritage Edition' supercar is painted in Wimbledon White and is recognizable by its 'Antimatter Blue' livery, including a black rally stripe on the roof and rear spoiler. Further accents are exposed carbon fiber components as well as 20-inch carbon fiber wheels, silver painted Brembo brake calipers with black graphics and black wheel nuts.

The interior also shows more carbon fiber, for example on the door sills, the lower A-pillars and the center console. The seats have Alcantara covers. Matching Alcantara and leather can be found on the instrument panel, while the pillars and headliner are clad entirely in Alcantara. Appliqu├ęs on the instrument panel as well as on the door panels and seats visually refer to the colors of the wheels. And the sports steering wheel with its black stitching features polished shift paddles.

Technically there are no changes. The 2022 model year of the Ford GT - and thus the last of the current model generation - will go into production from January 2022. Ford does not say how many copies the Heritage Edition is limited to. Prices have not yet been mentioned either.,

Conclusion

Ford continues the series of special models with the Ford GT. The Heritage Edition, which is intended to commemorate the original prototypes from 1964, is only available in the 2022 model year.
