Auction house Mecum will auction the 2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition, which will take place from November 12 to 14 this year.

Ford showcased the ’67 Heritage Edition to celebrate the American team’s victory in Le Mans with drivers Dan Gurney and A.J. Voith. In turn, these same racers left their signatures on the engine cover of the GT model that appeared on the market, making it one of a kind.

The car is equipped with a titanium exhaust system, 20-inch aluminum wheels and Brembo carbon ceramic brakes. In addition, the car has a body painted in Race Red with white stripes.

As for the GT powertrain, it is equipped with a 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 engine with a capacity of 647 hp. and 746 Nm of torque. Together with the engine, a 7-speed Getrag with two clutches and a rear-wheel drive function. Speaking of the interior of the model, it is worth noting the presence of seats, trimmed with leather and carbon fiber, with red stitching.

The estimated cost of the Ford GT’67 Heritage Edition has not yet been disclosed, but judging by the fact that used GTs are sold for more than 1 million dollars, it can be assumed that for this instance it will turn out to be no less.

In addition, it was recently noted that a rare Pontiac Trans Am GMMC Blackbird with minimum mileage will be sold at auction. It should be emphasized that in 2002, the manufacturer produced eight of these special vehicles.
