2017 Ford GT ’66 Heritage Edition

The Ford GT has always been deeply rooted in a proud history that stems back over 50 years. The 2017 Ford GT ’66 Heritage Edition gives honors to the No.2 race car driven by Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon to victory at Le Mans in 1966. While the third installment of the Ford GT has evolved immensely since McLaren and Amon drove the GT 40 Mark II to so many victories in the late 1960s, there are plenty of similarities between these two vehicles as Ford once again makes a return to Le Mans.
