BET­TER LATE

The Tribune (NZ) - - MID WEEK MOTORING -

Straight from the ‘‘we won’t see it here’’ de­part­ment is Ford’s lat­est com­mem­o­ra­tion for the time it gave Fer­rari a damn good thrash­ing at Le Mans in 1966. and this year as well now!

The all-new 2017 Ford GT (which isn’t com­ing to NZ) will now be avail­able in a lim­ited-edi­tion ‘her­itage theme’ hon­our­ing the GT40 Mark II driven to vic­tory by New Zealan­ders Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon at Le Mans in 1966 – part of the his­toric 1-2-3 Ford GT sweep of that year. The car will fea­ture unique in­te­rior and ex­te­rior colours, and an ex­clu­sive wheel fin­ish.

The Ford GT ‘66 Her­itage Edi­tion fea­tures a Shadow Black ex­te­rior in ei­ther gloss or matte fin­ish with sil­ver stripes, and an ex­posed car­bon fi­bre pack­age. The car sports Frozen White #2 hood and door graph­ics, and 20-inch one­piece forged alu­minium wheels in a gold satin clearcoat with black lug nuts.
