> Ford GT ‘68 Heritage edition celebrates the GT40 P/1075 of the 1968 and 1969 Le Mans fame, one of the few cars to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans twice 

> The most iconic racing livery to ever grace a Ford vehicle returns with the Ford GT ’68 Heritage edition, with unique Heritage Blue and Heritage Orange paint scheme


Gulf Oil is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its first Le Mans win with the legendary Ford GT40. And to mark the occasion, Gulf joined hands with Ford to build this new Ford GT ’68 Heritage edition which was unveiled on 25 August at Laguna Seca Raceway in California. 

As you can see in the pictures, the Ford GT ’68 Heritage edition features the famous ‘Heritage Blue’ exterior with ‘Heritage Orange’ graphics, and it is offered with an optional exposed carbon A-pillar and #9 graphics on both the bonnet and doors. This masterpiece sports unique high-gloss dark stainless 20-inch forged alloys, orange callipers and silver rear-view mirror caps.

On the inside, this limited-edition Ford GT features exclusive colours and materials. Ebony Alcantara is extensively used throughout the cabin along with contrasting blue and orange stitching. There’s also a neat seat embossment inspired by the original ’68 Le Mans winning car. Most importantly, the ’68 Heritage edition boasts a unique serialised identification plate plus exposed matte carbon-fibre door sills and air-pods. 

“Many say the Gulf Oil paint scheme is the most famous in motorsports, propelled by the 1968 GT40 that quickly became a global sensation after Ford beat its European competitors not three, but four times in a row,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford Executive Global Vice President and President.”
