2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition Rocks A Gulf Livery

The Blue Oval is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the GT40’s win at Le Mans by unveiling the 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition.

Dressed in a Gulf livery, the limited edition model features exposed carbon fiber on A-pillars as well as exclusive 20-inch forged aluminum wheels with a high-gloss dark stainless finish. The styling changes don’t stop there as the model has been equipped with silver mirror caps, orange brake calipers and black lug nuts.

Buyers can further embrace the racing theme by ordering exposed carbon fiber numbers on the doors and hood. 2019 models will be offered with No. 9 graphics to pay tribute to the GT40 that won Le Mans in 1968. Likewise, the 2020 Ford GT Heritage Edition will have No. 6 graphics to honor the car which won the race in 1969.

Moving in the cabin, the Heritage Edition has Ebony colored Alcantara upholstery on the seats, instrument panel, headliner, pillars and steering wheel. Drivers will also find blue and orange contrast stitching as well as high-gloss dark stainless accents. There are also a new seat embossments inspired by the car that won Le Mans in 1968.

Rounding out the changes are a serialized identification plate and exposed matte carbon fiber on the door sills and center console.

Since the Heritage Edition is essentially a styling package, the car’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine carries over and continues to produce 647 hp (482 kW / 656 PS) and 550 lb-ft (744 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which enables the car to hit a top speed of 216 mph (347 km/h).

In a statement, Ford’s president global operations, Joe Hinrichs, said “The 1968 GT40 quickly became a global sensation after beating its European competitors on the track four times in a row, and in honor of the 50th anniversary of its win, we’re paying fresh tribute to the original with a new heritage limited edition.”
