While there’s really no such thing as a “cheap” Ford GT, we continue to be astounded at the prices second-gen models are going for these days. And this rare, low-mile 2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage Editon figures to keep that trend going when it crosses the block at Mecum’s Kissimmee auction, which is going on right now. After all, it carries an auction estimate of $1,250,000-$1,325,000, and we don’t doubt it’ll land somewhere around that mark.
Heck, regular Ford GTs are selling for huge money these days, and the 2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition is even rarer, with just around 1,000 Heritage Edition models planned for production over four model years. This one happens to have just 780 miles on the clock as well, so it’s essentially brand new, and sports a few desirable options like the $10k titanium exhaust and red six-point seat belts/harnesses.
The ’67 Heritage Edition was designed to commemorate the first and only all-American team to win Le Mans, with legendary drivers Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt behind the wheel of the Shelby-American Ford GT40 MKIV. On the outside, that’s accomplished with Race Red paint, painted white stripes, and Frozen White Number 1 hood and door graphics inspired by the original.
Exposed gloss carbon-fiber trim and one-piece 20-inch forged aluminum wheels in Satin Silver/Carbon clear coat with black lug nuts, red calipers, and silver rearview mirror caps wrap up the exterior enhancements, while the interior features an Ebony Alcantara headliner and pillars, ebony leather-wrapped carbon fiber seats with red accent stitched inserts, and Satin Dark stainless appliques on the instrument panel, door register bezels, and seat X-brace.
Under the hood, the 2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition features a stock drivetrain, but we wouldn’t consider that a negative given the fact that it’s Ford’s twin-turbo 3.5L EcoBoost V6 cranking out 647 horsepower. The car’s 0-60 time of 2.8 seconds and 218 mile-per-hour top speed is nothing to scoff at either. But considering how collectible this gem is, we doubt the new owner will explore those limits very much.
