As a tribute to Alan Mann Racing’s 1966 Ford GT lightweight experimental prototypes, Ford has whipped the covers off a new limited-edition GT. Available only to approved Ford GT customers, this special variant celebrates the role the prototypes played in the history of the development of the Ford GT.

“Whether it’s going like hell at the racetrack or out-innovating the competition, the Ford GT Alan Mann Heritage Edition honours the vehicles that helped lead Ford to its wins,” said Mike Severson, Ford GT programme manager. “With its red and gold livery, this Ford GT is inspired by Alan Mann Racing’s contribution to our Le Mans-winning story.”

In addition to the unique Alan Mann exterior body paint, complete with gold graphics, the limited-edition GT features a dual over-the-roof racing stripe, Frozen White accent strips and roundels with the number 16 on the doors, bonnet and below the rear wing. An array of gloss carbon-fibre components is visible to the eye.

The heritage-inspired Ford is fitted with a set of 20-inch alloy wheels. Housed within the latter items are Brembo brake callipers, which are finished and black and features red graphics. 

Inside, carbon fibre has been applied to the door sills, centre console and registers. Gold and red contrast stitching accentuate the ebony Alcantara-wrapped carbon-fibre seats. Embossed “GT” logos can be found on the headrests. The instrument panel is trimmed in ebony leather and Alcantara, with the steering wheel, pillars and headliner also finished in this material. The paddle shifters are finished in Alan Mann red.
