Here’s some serious American muscle for you. Harkening back to the glory days of the 1960s, racing fans will remember the legendary Ford GT40 race cars that beat Ferrari to win multiple Le Mans races and the 1968 World Championship.
Ford decided to bring back this legendary car to the modern age, when they introduced the new Ford GT in 2005. Then, in 2006, to commemorate Ford’s epic wins over Ferrari in the 1960s, they decided to produce a limited run of about 343 cars painted in the “Heritage” paint scheme – a combination of “Heritage Blue” and “Epic Orange” – recalling the days of the race-winning Ford GT40s sponsored by Gulf Oil.
In stock form, the Ford GT is pure power, with 550 hp and 500 lb-feet of muscle-bound torque. Well, what if that just wasn’t enough for you? Ok, here’s your answer!…
Just drop the car off at Heffner Performance in Sarasota, Florida and have them install a Heffner Twin Turbo system for your special Ford GT. 🙂
With about 850 hp on typical “pump gas”, you will have more than enough power. And if you decide you want more, just fill ‘er up with some race fuel and you will surpass 1000 hp just like Carroll Shelby would expect you to do! 😉
This is a car that should make any American proud – just like those famous GT40 race cars did back in the day. 🙂
