                It comes with matte or gloss black paint, silver stripes, and its aluminum wheels will be getting a gold clearcoat finish. The leather wrapped steering wheel and blue seat belts are a throwback to the GT40, while the visible carbon fiber door sills and interior trim mark help to modernize the car. Inside the car, you will be greeted with beautiful looking unique serialized identification plate.

                 The 2017 GT is powered by a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that Ford states will produce at least 600 horsepower, 100 more than the GT40’s 7.0-liter V8. The ’66 Heritage Edition will only be available on 2017 model year cars, and are expected to see very limited production due to the GT’s overall 250-unit annual production cap. The price can be expected to be around $400,000. This seems like a lot for a piece of memorabilia, but it is important to note that the actual 1966 race-winning GT40 was recently sold for a reported $22 million.
