The new Ford GT was only ever available in limited numbers. As in, 250.

But now here’s a doubly limited version.

The GT ’66 Heritage Edition celebrates the 50th anniversary of Ford’s 1-2-3 at Le Mans. It has its own styling tweaks inside and out and has the winning car’s number on its bonnet and doors.

Stupendously awkward if you park next to another one outside Matalan, you’d think.

You get 20” gold rims, too, as well as the options of silver stripes and, something you’d think isn’t very 1966 at all, a variety of carbon fibre details.

The seats are made of carbon too, and there’s an array of badging around the place to complement the ID plate that’ll be unique to each car. Given the sort of numbers we’re talking about, presumably said plate won’t need to be very big.
