Ford comes with a new special edition of the GT: the ‘Alan Mann Heritage Edition’. With this version, Ford pays tribute to Alan Mann Racing, the company that helped Ford make the GT MkI lighter in the 1960s.

The Alan Mann Heritage Edition shares the same livery as the AM GT-1, Alan Mann Racing’s first GT40-based prototype. Mann used lighter materials for his car, which ultimately helped Ford win Le Mans with the GT40 Mk2. A unique shade of red, ‘Alan Mann red’, forms the basis for the striking color scheme. Another signature element is the golden racing stripes, which are draped over the car from front to back. At the very front, those stripes at the height of the headlights are still flanked by two white stripes, which extend to the cooling slots. Furthermore, the race number ’16’ stands out, which can be found on the front, the flanks and under the rear spoiler.

The Alan Mann Heritage Edition also has various carbon details such as the wheels, splitter, side skirts, mirrors and diffuser. Ford continues that carbon fiber in the interior, where the door sills and the center console are made of the material. The seats are wrapped in black Alcantara with red-gold stitching. There is a small gold accent frame on the dashboard. To complete the match with the exterior, the paddle shifters are painted in the same unique red color as the exterior.

The Ford GT Alan Mann Heritage Edition is on display at the Chicago Auto Show alongside the original prototype. The special edition is also available to pre-order now for select GT customers and will ship this quarter. It’s not the first time Ford has used the GT to shine a light on the past, including the ‘Heritage Edition’ and the ’64 Heritage Edition’.
