...because, you know, it's not special enough already.

I wonder how they're going to divvy up this limited version of an already limited car...

Very interesting. Somehow reminds me a bit of the Aventador Miura Heritage Painting, but still like it.

Wondering what other Heritage paintings are comming, maybe Gulf heritage and a Le Mans race heritage with 68 decal ?

Decisions, decisions, decisions ...

I'm still hoping for the 2016 LeMans livery!

The hint was given during Rally Ten, remember seeing the flat black/silver stripe mock up in the design studio?

Love the dash pic. I don't expect to ever have one of these cars but very proud of what Ford has done and that they are building them. I definitely need to get a ride in one or two of them to check it out for sure.

Am I the only guy who thinks the seats/seating arrangement are more GT40 than Ford GT?

Wow, looks great and I'm not a Black Car person. Color choice will be made impossible with all the great colors. How crazy this is, all of us trying to convince our wife's that "this is the combination" and He'll We Don't Even Know If We'll Get Chosen To Own One Yet! Shame on you Raj your making us crazy! Sue told me "you guys are crazy, you'll be walking around during sleepless nights banging your heads against the wall". You know she might be right.

Very nice, but I would "guess" this option is about the same price as a fully equipped F150.

Any truth to the rumor that the new FGT will start around $800k and the LeMans Heritage will come in around $1M?

Not even remotely close to true.

I think it looks awesome, however for me, would really want the heritage scheme on the new GT of the car that just won Le Mans - red / white/ blue baby!

This should be up on the configurator around noon.

I really like the scheme. My only concern would be that 80% of the 2017 cars will end up in this scheme as people hope it replicates the value premium the 06 Heritage cars got.

I think the R/W/B scheme actually looks better on the road car body than on the race car, but in my opinion would need to be available without the hydraulic suspension and with a giant fixed wing. I want the most ridiculous version possible, and I do not care at all about how streetable it is. I will say, it was pretty sick driving behind Raj and watching the rear wing on the new GT deploy.

Too many choices :willy

Like you mention Dave, this will be the most common version of the 2017 GT
Making your own color combo you are much more likely to end up with a "one of 4 or 5".

I want to see the Heritage 1968 colors, that still rocks!!

Proper "Special Edition Series" if you ask me. The Ford team can't seem to make a step wrong when it comes to the new GT . . . . . . And I totally love that about them! :rofl

When I dreamt that I could own one my thoughts were to order blue and wrap the red & white to replicate the track version. Would still be missing the fixed wing but would look cool on the street.

That may be the second in the series.
