2019 Ford GT Gets the Historic Livery Everyone’s Been Waiting for
Ford has been relatively hush-hush about the 2019 GT, but it recently blew the cover off it with the reveal of a famous livery on the 2019 supercar. In its debut year, the Ford GT had a few Heritage Edition models that boasted liveries of iconic racing ford models. While buyers enjoyed these liceries, they begged for the legendary Gulf livery. On the 2019 Ford GT, these fans get their wishes.
The 2019 Ford GT will hit showrooms with an available Heritage Edition package that will feature the same orange-an-blue color scheme as the 1968 and 1969 Le Mans-winning GT40. Not only will it feature the color scheme, but it will also feature ghosted “9” numbers on the doors and hood to pay homage to the 1968 winner. In 2020, Ford will offer this livery with No. 6 decals to pay respect to the 1969 race winner.
Besides the legendary livery, the 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition will feature exposed-carbon-fiber A-pillars and mirror caps, unique 20-inch wheels coated in high-gloss dark-stainless paint with black lug nuts, silver mirror caps, and orange brake calipers.
Inside, the cabin will take on a handful of special details to set it apart from all other GT’s. Buyers will find ebony Alcantara-wrapped seats, instrument panel, pillars, headliner and steering wheel; contrasting blue and orange stitching on the seats and steering wheel; seat embossment inspired by the original 1968 Le Mans-winning car; clear and polished anodized paddle shifters; high-gloss dark stainless appliqués on the instrument panel, door register bezels and x-brace; a unique serialized identification plate; and exposed matte carbon-fiber door sills, air register pods and center console.
There is no mention of what will power the 2019 Ford GT, but the lack of information likely means it use the same 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine with 647 horsepower. Shifting responsibilities will go to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that shoots the power out to the rear wheels.
Pricing for the 2019 Ford GT will be available later, so stay tuned for updates.
