KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What GT model will Ford bring to NYIAS 2022?

    It will be the Ford GT Holman Moody Edition.
  • When will the GT Holman Moody Edition be released?

    Its expected release date is from March to June of 2022.
  • Ford adds that the Holman Moody GT will be the final 2022 Heritage Edition to pay tribute to the GT40 MK II race car that completed the famous 1-2-3 sweep at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966. The Holman Moody team has played a vital role in the success of the Ford GT40. The race team became a part of Ford’s Le Mans committee alongside Shelby American and reworked GT40 MK II.

    “Of all the Ford GT Heritage Edition liveries we’ve done, the Holman Moody Heritage Edition’s can’t-miss signature gold and red theme is an epic tribute to our 1966 Le Mans finish. Inspired by one of the most well-known Ford GT40 race cars, this latest Ford GT honors the Holman Moody race team’s know-how and ability to out-innovate global competitors,” said Ford GT Program Manager Mike Severson.
