Hennessey Takes Delivery Of Spectacular Ford GT Heritage Edition

Ford took the wraps off the 2018 GT ’67 Heritage Edition at last year’s Monterey Car Week – and Hennessey Performance has just taken delivery of a brand-new example.

The vehicle pays homage to the firm’s 1967 24 Hours of Le Mans victory and is finished in Race Red along with white stripes and Frozen White No.1 graphics on the hood and doors. Additionally, it features 20-inch one-piece forged aluminum wheels, red brake calipers, silver wing mirror caps and can be optioned with an exposed carbon fiber package.

It remains to be seen what John Hennessey has in store for his new $500,000 supercar. He may choose to keep it stock and drive it as is, viewing it as an investment and an important collector’s item.

That being said, the Texas-based tuner is no stranger to modifying some of the planet’s most brutal performance cars and may have some exciting plans for this particular GT.

Either way, we have a hunch that we will see more of this special GT in the coming months.

  • I wouldn’t surprised if he is ended up tuning it.

    • Bash

      Exactly my thought.

    • LWOAP

      Why wouldn’t he? I mean, I know they are expensive but when has that stopped anyone? If someone is willing to butcher out a Veyron then Hennessey could easily add another 400hp to this thing.

  • Six_Tymes

    looks fantastic

  • Don

    What ever he decides to do regarding keeping it stock from Ford, or tuning it. He has an amazing car to start with.

    I’m anxious to see the direction Hennessey takes. What ever he decides, he has an investment Super car that buyers will be waiting for in a couple years.

    • Given his name, if he is tuning it. It could worth more than standard GT.

  • eb110americana

    Red certainly shows off the sporty side of the GT. As Hennessey tunes the similar Ecoboost V6 in the Raptor from 450 hp/510 tq. to 600 hp/622 tq., I suspect he will be working his magic on the GT as well–this one starting with 647 hp/550 tq.

  • Belthronding

    most probably the best looking spec’d GT by far. Hennessey you lucky dog,wish you very best driving experiences with this legend.

  • GobbleUp

    Looks fantastic.

    Sounds terrible with that ecoboost engine. Poorly done.
