Ford GT Heritage Edition
Produced between 2004 and 2006 Ford sold over 4,000 of the GT, a car based on the now legendary and extremely sought after 1960’s GT40. Such was the weight that Ford put behind the GT, even the big daddy himself Carroll Shelby was bought in by big wigs to assist and consult on the development of the GT as well as test driving the prototype models.
With a 5.4 liter supercharged Modular V8 engine and Ricardo 6-speed transmission producing 550 bhp the GT could achieve 0-60mph in a pretty earth shattering 3.5 seconds with a top electronically limited speed of 205mph.
In 2006 towards the end of production they released this the Ford GT Heritage Edition with it’s blue and orange Gulf Oil / JW Automotive livery originally seen on the 1968/69 24 hours of Le Mans winning cars driven by Pedro Rodriguez and Lucien Bianchi in 68 and Jackie Ickx and Jackie Oliver in 69. Only 343 of the Heritage Edition were produced and prices now can reach north of $300,000.
