- ford has revealed the 2022 gt ’64 prototype heritage edition, which honors the original gt prototype from 1964, as part of the gt's final year of production.
- the heritage edition is finished in wimbledon white with an antimatter blue hood, racing stripe, and side graphic to mimic the original gt prototype's livery.
- the special edition is covered in carbon fiber, from the rear diffuser to the seats, and the interior is swathed in upscale alcantara.
since launching for the 2017 model year, the ford gt supercar has repeatedly paid homage to ford’s endurance racing conquests at le mans in the 1960s. now, to celebrate its final year of production, ford is releasing yet another special version of the gt to honor its lineage. the 2022 gt '64 prototype heritage edition pays tribute to the five original gt prototypes that kicked the ferrari-rivaling gt40 project, specifically mimicking the livery of the first prototype, gt/101, that debuted at the 1964 new york auto show.
the 2022 ford gt '64 heritage prototype edition features wimbledon white paint with antimatter blue accents including on the hood, the racing stripe over the roof, and the "ford" graphic on the side sills. the 20-inch carbon-fiber wheels are painted antimatter blue as well, and carbon fiber is sprinkled across the exterior, appearing on the front splitter, sills, mirror stalks, engine louvers, and rear diffuser. the brembo brakes are finished in silver. no changes were made to the gt’s performance characteristics, with the twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter v-6 engine still producing 660 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque.
the interior also gets a healthy dose of carbon fiber on the doorsills, a-pillar, and center console. the carbon fiber seats are clothed in lightspeed blue alcantara, which also appears on the dashboard, while the headliner and steering wheel are ebony alcantara.
the 2022 gt '64 prototype heritage edition will be displayed alongside the only 1964 gt prototype still wearing its original livery, chassis gt/105, during monterey car week. the prototype that the new special edition honors, gt/101, was scrapped after le mans and monza crash testing back in the day. there is no word on just how limited the '64 prototype heritage edition production run will be or how much it will cost to take home one of these special-edition supercars, but it should be more than the $500,000 that it costs to buy a "standard" gt.
