Throughout the production run of the most recent Ford GT, The Blue Oval created and sold multiple special variants of that supercar to celebrate its storied past, including a number of wins at the iconic 24 Hours of Le Mans and other notable motorsports victories. One of those unique models was the 2021 Ford GT ’66 Heritage Edition, which celebrates the brand’s very first 24-hour endurance race win at the 1966 Daytona 24 Hour Continental. Now, one of these special machines is up for grabs at Bring a Trailer with just 353 miles on the clock.
As one might imagine from a high-dollar, limited-edition offering with such little mileage, this Ford GT ’66 Heritage Edition is in essentially brand new condition, with perfect Frozen White paint accented by black and red graphics that celebrate that historic, aforementioned race victory. Otherwise, it’s pretty standard Ford GT fare, with notable features including a set of 20-inch gloss carbon-fiber wheels and paint protection film covering the body, underbody, and rear diffuser.
The same goes for the cabin, which touts a set of red Alcantara-covered Sparco seats with manually reclining carbon-fiber shells, exposed carbon fiber trim on the door sills, dashboard, center console, and door panels, Heritage graphics, an adjustable pedal box and steering column, six-point racing harness anchors, automatic climate control, and a touchscreen infotainment system.
As is the case with every Ford GT from this latest generation, this ’66 Heritage Edition is powered by the twin-turbocharged Ford 3.5L V6 EcoBoost engine, which was factory-rated to produce 660 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque, flowing to the rear wheels via a Getrag seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. With bidding already cresting the million-dollar mark, it’s unclear just how much someone is willing to pay for this prized Blue Oval gem, but we’ll certainly be keeping an eye out for that when the hammer falls in a couple of days.
