Ford breathed into the GT supercar charm of the classic model GT40

The original supercar Ford GT40, as is known, in the late 60s of the last century dealt a serious blow to the Ferrari 275 P2 and 330 P2 of those years that unrestrainedly dominated the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Recalling those events, Ford introduced a special version of the modern supercar GT called Heritage Edition, which received the livery of the oil company Gulf Oil. It was in these colors that the GT40 achieved its brightest victories.

In addition to the orange-blue livery, the supercar received some body panels from unpainted CFRP, new 20-inch wheels, orange brake mechanisms, and silvery mirror housings.

The salon also underwent changes: there appeared an alcantara with an orange-blue stitching, the paddle lobes were made of anodized metal, the seats received a unique lining, and the dashboard and door handles – glossy inserts.

Under the hood, probably without any changes: there will be a biturbo six EcoBoost working in volume of 3.5 liters, although its power is not disclosed. But, judging by some sources, the engine capacity makes 630 horsepowers.

It is worth noting that the brand is planning another special version of the popular supercar.

Earlier Ford Mustang Bullitt has received upgrade of capacity from Steeda.
