Remember “24 Hours of Le Mans” race of 1966. That year Ford GT40 MkII won the first three places. It is Chris Amon and Bruce McLaren pilots with the 2 tail number achieved the victory. Thus, the Ford Company manufactured the new Ford GT – ’66 Heritage Edition supercar and dedicated it to the 50th anniversary of this event. The carmakers reported that it will be the limited edition.

The coupe received a Shadow Black painting (glossy or matt at choice) and glossy gold 20-inch wheels with black bolts. The basic element of the design is large number 2, seen in circles in Frozen White color. This trait copies the exterior view of semi centenary Ford model, which won the Le Mans race. The saloon is provided by blue seat belts and leather Carbon fiber GT seats as well as a dashboard and steering wheel with leather finishing. Technically, the anniversary car is identical to the serial, which means 3.5 V6 EcoBoost engine delivering more than 600-hp and a seven-step automatic transmission, through which the rod goes to the rear axle.

The work on the Ford limited version began before the “Le Mans 2016″. However, the fact that Fords GT Chip Ganassi team won the first and third places in the LMGTE Pro class became a big luck and gift in honor of victory of 1966.
