Ford has revealed another Heritage Edition for the GT supercar, as a 2021 model. However, this time, it pays homage to the GT40 MK II’s 1966 Daytona 24 Hour race victory. There’s also a Studio Collection — limited to 40 units, slated for production across 2021 and 2022 model years.
The 2021 GT Heritage Edition gets the livery of the endurance-winning 1966 GT40 MK II race car, which was piloted by Ken Miles and Lloyd Ruby. The exposed carbon fibre hood adds a stark contrast to the white, black and red combo livery. There’s also a 98 roundel against the exposed carbon background. Rounding off the exterior looks are Heritage Gold 20-inch forged-aluminum wheels paired with red lacquered Brembo monoblock calipers.
There’s also an option of Heritage Upgrade Package that gets 20-inch exposed carbon fibre wheels with gloss red-painted inner accent barrel, while the calipers are lacquered in black and detailed with red Brembo lettering.
Inside, a black Alcantara wraps the dashboard, headliner and steering wheel rim, while anodized red paddle shifters and red Alcantara performance seats add a dramatic contrast. Also, notice a ghosted 98 roundel on the carbon fibre door panel.
The Studio Collection as we can see, gets some jazzy, customizable colors and accents around the key styling elements including around the functional cooling ducts.
Deliveries of the 2021 model year GT will begin in early 2021, with production wrapping up altogether in 2022.
