Ford has introduced the latest Ford GT Heritage Edition, inspired by the 1966 Daytona 24 Hour Continental-winning GT40. A car you might recognize from last year’s Ford v Ferrari.

The GT will wear Ken Miles’ number 98, the paint on which has been ghosted to highlight the carbon fiber door panels. Optional 20-inch exposed carbon-fiber wheels and black brake calipers with Brembo emblazoned in red make sure you know how quick this special edition really is.

The original ’66 car was driven to the GT40’s first 24-hour win. Drivers Ken Miles and Lloyd Ruby raced through the night give the 98 car a 30-mile lead when the checkered flag fell.

It was the first time in years that Ferraris sports car racing dominance could convincingly be questioned, not just because the 98 car won, but because GT40s also finished in second, third, fourth, and fifth.


Along with the heritage edition, Ford is also introducing the Ford GT Studio Collection. The new graphics package allows buyers to customize colors to highlight key styling elements and is the result of a collaboration between Ford and Garen Nicoghosian, the company that builds the GT’s design lead.

“The combination of the stripes and accents invokes the emotion of speed and draws your eye to some of the most prominent features of the GT,” said Nicoghosian. “The fuselage, buttresses, and signature features on the headlights provide visual anchors for the graphics, guiding your eye across the vehicle.”


Available in seven standard colors and an extended color palette, there’s an almost limitless number of combinations available to buyers. Despite that, only 40 of these special editions will be built.
