Ply­ing Bricks

Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle Maniac -

The ex­tra­or­di­nary lengths Ford went to mar­ket its re­turn to Le Mans in­cluded a pro­mo­tion with LEGO which re­sulted in a 40,000-brick ver­sion of the 2016 chal­lenger whipped-up in three weeks. The 1:3 modern day Ford GT race­car was dis­played a Cir­cuit de la Sarthe along­side a model of the clas­sic Ford GT40 that won the 1966 af­fair. Mean­time, Ford has pulled the cov­ers off a ’66 Her­itage Edi­tion model of its 2017 Ford GT, pay­ing homage to the his­toric liv­ery that adorned the 1966 Le Mans win­ner of Chris Amon and Bruce McLaren. The Ford GT ’66 Her­itage Edi­tion fea­tures a Shadow Black ex­te­rior in ei­ther gloss or matte fin­ish with sil­ver stripes and ex­posed car­bon fi­bre pack­age. The car sports Frozen White #2 hood and door graph­ics, and 20-inch one-piece forged alu­minum wheels in a gold satin clearcoat with black lug nuts.
