Ford has recently announced that it will soon launch a limited-edition GT supercar that pays homage to the 1964 Ford GT prototype that led to America’s only Le Mans-winning supercar.

Dubbed the 2022 Ford GT ’64 Heritage Edition, this upcoming supercar harks back to Ford’s 1964 Ford GT prototype that debuted at the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) on April 3, 1964. It took home Le Mans wins from 1966 to 1969, and again in 2016.

“This is the first Ford GT Heritage Edition that goes beyond celebrating race wins — this one goes deep, and honors the earliest of Ford supercar heritage. The Ford GT ’64 Prototype Heritage Edition is a modern interpretation of the original, with no mistaking what this car is paying tribute to,” said Ford GT Program Manager Mike Severson.

The 2022 Ford GT ’64 Heritage Edition wears Wimbledon White paint with Antimatter Blue graphics paired with an over-the-roof triple racing stripe.

An abundance of carbon fiber accents can also be found outside the supercar including an exposed carbon fiber front splitter, side sills, mirror stalks, engine louvers, a rear diffuser finished in gloss, and 20-inch Antimatter Blue-painted carbon fiber wheels coupled with Brembo brake calipers in silver with black graphics.

Ford said that the same carbon fiber theme extends to the 2022 Ford GT ’64 Heritage Edition’s interior. It can be found on the supercar’s door sills, lower A-pillars, console, and seats.

Likewise, plenty of premium leather can be found inside the cabin which includes Lightspeed Blue Alcantara-wrapped seats (with silver stitching), the Ebony leather and Lightspeed Blue Alcantara-wrapped instrument panel, Ebony Alcantara leather-wrapped pillars and headliner, Ebony Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel.

Antimatter Blue accents can also be found on the 2022 Ford GT ’64 Heritage Edition’s instrument panel, door register bezels, and seat X-braces.

“There are a lot of milestone moments in the history of Ford GT that we’ve celebrated, but the team was unanimous in believing the original prototype was the right vehicle this time around. That 1964 prototype unleashed the creative genius of the Ford Advanced Vehicles team and paved the way for the Ford GT program. It put all of this in motion,” Severson added.

Other cars in Ford's prestigious "Heritage Edition" lineup include the 2006 Ford GT Gulf Livery Heritage Edition (only 343 built), 2017 Ford GT ’66 Heritage Edition (only 27 built), 2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition (only 39 built), 2019 Ford GT ’68 Gulf Livery Heritage Edition (only 50 built), 2020 Ford GT ’69 Gulf Livery Heritage Edition (only 50 built), and the 2021 Ford GT ’66 Daytona Heritage Edition (in production).

The limited-edition supercar will only be made available for approved Ford GT customers. Ford says that production is expected to begin in January next year.
