Decorated in Heritage Blue paint with Epic Orange stripes, the 2006 Ford GT Heritage Edition is sure to turn heads even more than a regular GT. It even has four white roundels in which the buyer can paint a favorite number. Otherwise, this special edition is identical to a stock Ford GT, which is built on an aluminum space-frame chassis with super-plastic-formed aluminum body panels and an aluminum-over-carbon engine cover. The supercharged 5.4-liter V8 is mounted behind the seats in a mid-ship configuration, making 550 horsepower and 500 lb.-ft. of torque. A six-speed manual transmission drives the rear wheels, propelling the $150,000 super car to a top speed of 205 mph.
Because the Ford GT doesn’t meet federal regulations for the 2007 model year and beyond, this is the last year for the short-lived exotic, virtually guaranteeing its desirability for decades to come. Since this classic two-tone paint job is available only for 2006, this isn’t a bad way to make a rare automobile even more exclusive.
Just make sure to wear your Chuck Jordans, vintage jeans, and a faded Jimi Hendrix T-shirt when you take it for a spin.
