132161 / 2006 Ford GT "Heritage Edition"

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of that first victory, Ford rolled out
the 2006 Ford GT "Heritage" edition which commemorates the JW
Automotive/American Gulf Oil-sponsored Le Mans-winning Ford GT racer (and
added a tidy $13,000 to the cars bottom line). The Heritage Blue and Epic
Orange paint scheme recalls those Gulf Oil-sponsored Ford GT40s of the
'60s, and looks unique on the streets today. Only 343 units were produced
under production code GL PO, making this 2006 GT Heritage the one to own
for posterity. Not only is the Ford GT an homage to a great chapter in
racing history, but for the true fan, the only one to own is one wearing
Gulf livery. In addition, this one is equipped with every single option
available in 2006 and has been driven just 409 miles since new. For all
intents and purposes, this car can be considered a new vehicle.
Mechanically, the Heritage editions are identical to the other Ford GTs,
which is definitely a good thing. With 550 horsepower on tap from a 5.4
liter DOHC supercharged V8, this car is every bit a match for its
competition. Ford engineers knew that their GT would be a showpiece, and
designed the engine bay to be not only functional, but beautiful as well.
The aluminum space frame is exposed and finished to show standards, with a
uniform finish and nicely done welds. The supercharged engine features Ford
Blue valve covers with "Powered by Ford" emblems, just like the originals.
Each hand-built engine also features a small plaque signed by the engine
builders, a personal touch present on high-end cars like Aston-Martin and
And while you're back there checking out the engine, take a moment to
admire the exposed suspension, too. Using technology that they could only
dream of in 1966, the state-of-the-art suspension on the GT gives you a
racecar for the street (or a street car that can compete on the track).
Coil-over shocks manage a sophisticated double wishbone suspension that is
compliant enough to dismiss all but the deepest potholes. Urban stop-start
traffic, long commutes, back road boogies, a quick trip to the supermarket
- the Porsche 911 is no longer the world's only "everyday supercar." Up
front, a sharp steering system telegraphs road inputs directly to your
hypothalamus without being twitchy. In short, Ford did its homework with
this one. This car also carries the optional red-painted brake calipers at
all four corners, hiding behind those gorgeous 18-inch front and 19-inch
rear forged alloy wheels (a $3500 option!).
The black leather interior is just as much a tribute to the original as the
exterior styling, albeit much more comfortable and accommodating. With
leather buckets with special perforated cushions designed to emulate the
metal rings in the original cars' seats, it's a brilliant adaptation of
racecar styling. The dashboard spans across the driver's side of the car
housing all the important gauges, with the tachometer placed front and
center ahead of the steering wheel. Switchgear is thoughtfully designed to
be a 21st century update on the basic toggle switches used in the track
vehicles, and the stubby gearshift for the 6-speed manual looks right at
home in the retro interior. Significant improvements have been made over
the original in terms of comfort and ergonomics, however, and this GT
sports a very powerful HVAC system that can chill a driver on the hottest
days without the engine losing its cool. And I should really mention the
$4000 McIntosh stereo system with 1000 watts of power and a killer
subwoofer if the engines baritone isn't enough for you, this system should
satisfy even the most demanding audiophiles. As with the exterior,
everything is in as-new condition. The driver's seat shows exactly zero
wear, and I wonder if anyone has ever sat in the passenger's seat at all.
It even still faintly smells of a new car in there.
It's a well-known axiom in the collector car world when trying to determine
future collectability: If it's special today, it will be special tomorrow.
I can't imagine a more special modern car than one with this kind of
history behind it. With a very limited production run, full documentation,
every single available option, and little more than delivery miles, THIS is
the Ford GT to add to your collection for the future. At RK Motors
Charlotte, we know these cars are special, because they're still trading
hands for more than sticker price, so it's clearly not the kind of car that
will suffer typical used car depreciation (even most Ferraris can't claim
that). Consider today's price the price of admission and it will only go up
from here. Call now!

Desert Proofing the Ford Raptor! - Dirt Every Day Episode 2
On this episode of Dirt Every Day, Fred Williams up fits and outfits one of
the coolest 4x4's on the market today, the Ford Raptor. Raptors are high
performance desert machines, but we found one that earns it's owner a
living each week banging around on an obscure desert compound. The owner
is hard on his equipment and we took this poor bird of prey under our wing
for a week to transform it into a more vicious desert predator.
Dirt Every Day appears every other Thursday on the Motor Trend channel.

You can pretty much hear the power of this 2000hp twin turbo'd Ford GT taking part in Shift S3ctor
Airstrip Attack 7.
With a number of burnouts in the area designated for tyre warming before
hitting the drag strip it makes for some cool video before the sounds of
the car putting the power down and heading to over 200mph in a half mile.
Thanks for watching, Tim
