Car Of The Day: 2020 Ford GT Heritage Edition With Gulf Livery
This particular 2020 Ford GT is one of 50 examples built in the ’69 Heritage Edition configuration, commemorating the GT40 Mk I race car’s victory in the 1969 24 Hours of Le Mans. It is finished in Heritage Blue with Competition Orange stripes over a ’69 Heritage interior.
Exterior optional equipment includes the Heritage Roundel Graphics package, 20-inch gloss-finish, exposed-carbon-fiber wheels, Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes with Heritage Orange painted calipers, and gloss carbon-fiber exterior trim.
The interior features Alcantara trim, a stainless, matte-painted X-brace with optional six-point racing harness anchors, and an F1-inspired steering wheel, also wrapped in Alcantara. The minimalist digital instrument cluster continues the racing theme, and matte carbon-fiber trim and a stalkless steering column with anodized black aluminum shift paddles complete the interior.
Power is supplied by the mid-mounted twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that produces 647 HP and 550 lb-ft of torque, sending it all to the rear wheels via a seven-speed ‘box.
