Ford GT Heritage Edition For Sale At Cats Exotics

The Ford GT may have had a short lifespan – it lasted only two years – but there’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that the supercar left an indelible mark in the American auto industry. No more is that evident than in the limited edition Ford GT Heritage Edition. Limited to just 343 units, the GT Heritage Edition separated itself from other Ford GTs because of its Gulf livery, the same body finish the Ford GT40 had when it won at the 24 Hours of Le Mans back in 1969. These days, the GT Heritage Edition has become increasingly collectible, having sold in auctions in excess of $300,000 in the past. The “sought-after” status attached to the GT Heritage Edition will again be on full display as another example of this prized collectible is currently being sold at Catsexotics at a price of $374,888.

This particular GT Heritage Edition has 7,617 miles on its odometer and carries the VIN number 1FAFP90S36Y400856. It also has all the available options from the factory, including the lightweight aluminum BBS wheels, McIntosh stereo system, and most importantly, the Heritage Gulf paint livery. According to the seller, the car has been involved in an accident in the past, but the damage sustained was limited to the passenger side wheels so the body of the car has never been touched. The wheels were eventually replaced through an insurance claim.

Other than that, everything about the GT Heritage Edition justifies the six-figure price tag attached to it. The body of the supercar also features HID headlights and Eagle F1 Supercar tires that have less than 2,000 miles on them. Likewise, the interior has leather-trimmed carbon fiber seats and standard air conditioning. It also retains the same 5.4-liter, supercharged V-8 engine that produces 550 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque.

Those interested in buying a Ford GT Heritage Edition now have a chance to do so. The only question is whether they’re willing to pony up that much money for a car that’s seen its share of adventures.
