2006 Ford GT Heritage ‘Gulf Livery’ 1 of 333
This GT has never been titled- It is on an MSO
Blue and orange-striped 2006 Ford GT. Just as it did when it captured victory at Le Mans in 1968 and 1969. New for 2006, the limited-edition Ford GT 'Heritage' paint livery harkens back to the JW Automotive/American Gulf Oil-sponsored Le Mans-winning Ford GT racer. This unique paint scheme, one of the most memorable looks in Ford racing history, features a Heritage Blue with Epic Orange-striped exterior and four white 'roundels' allowing customers to apply the number of their choice.
2006 GT in these timeless colors to celebrate our historic racing achievements and the high-performance and innovative technology behind our supercar," said Carter Balkcom, Ford GT marketing manager. "The blue and orange livery is one of the most memorable paint schemes to ever be displayed on a race car. The JW Automotive American Gulf Oil Ford GT P/1075 is an iconic race car being one of only a few cars to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans twice." 2006 also marks the 40th anniversary of Ford's remarkable four-year winning streak of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
"Sweeping Le Mans proved to the world that Ford Motor Company could beat the most prestigious manufacturers in the world," says Phil Martens, group vice president, Product Creation. "Those two events helped establish a culture of performance at Ford that to this day benefits our products, engineering expertise, and brand loyalty. Today, that culture is embodied in the Ford GT, aptly titled the pace car for the entire company."
The Ford GT delivers 550 horsepower and a certified 205-mph top track speed rating, with styling inspired by the historic racecar and a comfortable and contemporary interior.
Our car is perfect and in as new condition. Out of a Ford collection since new.
