The final and final special edition Ford GT celebrated the company’s 2016 win at Le Mans. Ford will begin shipping the 2022 Ford GT LM Edition this fall, with production finished by the end of the year. The car received unique exterior and interior styling touches that set it apart from the rest of the GT production.
Ford will finish each GT in Liquid Silver, with customers having a choice of red or blue accents, as the Le Mans-winning car wears red and blue. Blue Oval uses one of the colors on the lower carbon fiber aerodynamic bits like the front splitter, side and door sills, and rear diffuser. This color is also visible on the rear view mirror and engine room grille.
The car wears 20-inch carbon fiber wheels that are exposed, featuring red or blue inner barrel accents. Ford will secure it to the car with titanium wheel nuts and paint the Brembo brake calipers with black varnish. Complementing the build are 3D-printed titanium exhaust pipes and a 3D-printed GT LM titanium rear badge.
Inside, the blue or red theme continues, with colors adorning the carbon fiber driver’s seat wrapped in Alcantara. Ford finished the passenger seat in Ebony color with stitching accents that match the color of the driver’s seat. Ebony and Alcantara leather wraps around the dashboard, while the company uses Alcantara for the headliner and pillars. Carbon fiber accents on the center console, A-pillar and ventilation holes complete the visual upgrade.
Each of the 20 GT LM Editions will feature a slight third-place finish (No. 69) of 2016 Le Mans. The Blue Oval has crushed the race car’s crankshaft into powder which the company then uses to 3D print the instrument panel badge. Ford’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 sports car that produces 660 horsepower (392 kilowatts).
Ford will end GT production in December, ending the car’s journey. Ford introduced the car in 2015 before production began in 2016 for the 2017 model. When production ends, Ford will build 1,350 GT, and 20 of these are included in that total. The new Ford GT LM Edition is available to order for approved Ford GT customers.
