Near the end of the Ford GT Road, at least for this generation, but before we get down to it we’ll see a few more special editions.
The Hot on the Hill version of the GT Alan Mann Heritage Edition, unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show in February 2022, comes with another Heritage version, honoring Hallman-Moody.
The American Race Team, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, promoted three GT40s in 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans – in which Ford finished an epic 1-2-3. One of the Hallman-Moody cars, the Racing No. 5 (chassis number P / 1016) was the third-ranked car. The GT40s fielded by Shelby American went first and second. With Shelby, Holman-Mody helped create the race-winning 7.0-liter V-8 of the GT40, as well as the brakes, suspension and tire setup.
Incidentally, no. The 5 GT40 was put up for auction in 2018 and sold for, 9,795,000.
2022 Ford GT Hallman-Moody Heritage Edition
The modern Ford GT Hallman-Moody Heritage version matches the gold and red levers which are no. The 5 GT40 was carried to the 1966 Le Mans race, where modern touches, such as exposed carbon fiber, were added. Brambo brake calipers are black with silver accents. The cabin features carbon fiber, door seals and center consoles, and black alcantara seats are paired with gold accent stitching, as well as a combination of black alcantara and black leather on the dash and steering wheel.
The GT Heritage Edition car does not come with any powertrain mode. This means that the GT is powered by the Hallman-Moody standard 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6, good for 660 hp. The engine is a 7-speed dual-clutch automatically connected and only rotates the rear wheels.
The arrival of the GT Holman-Mody brings the total number of GT Heritage Edition models to nine, and is the last of the special editions paying homage to the GT40 MK II race car that completed the 1-2-3 sweep in the 1966 Le Man race. Ford did not say how many build slots would be available, although previous examples are as high as 50 units. Note, these cars will not increase the total run of 1,350 units Ford will build for this generation of its GT Supercar, which will end production in December.
The Ford GT Hallman-Moody Heritage Edition officially debuted at the 2022 New York International Auto Show starting April 13. To find out about other cars set up for the show, visit our Dedicated Hub.
