Limited run Ford GT Heritage Edition teased!

The car's livery is a special one, and is made so to honour the Holman-Moody racing team of the 1960s.

Ford has revealed the strikingly beautiful Ford GT Holman-Moody Heritage edition, and it it will be a limited-production vehicle as well. Ford is on a releasing spree with the GT recently, releasing many tribute editions of the GT to honour the heritage of Ford in the motor industry- one of them being the GT Heritage edition, more about which you can read here.

In the 1966 24 hours of Le Mans, Ford scored a 1-2-3 finish with the third placed car being one of the cars fielded by the Holman-Moody team. Holman-Moody also helped develop the car’s V8 engine which helped secure this milestone achievement.







Unfortunately as is the case with such one-off cars, the only changes we can expect will be visual ones. Those expecting mechanical changes such as a replica of the 7.0L V8 to be dumped in the back of the current car’s chassis will be disappointed to learn that nothing of the sort will happen. The production numbers have not been revealed, though to put an estimate of 50 cars being produced seems viable. These could also be the final few GTs we see, as rumours are floating around that Ford might bring an end to the production of the current-gen GT sometime this year.
