The modern Ford GT is bowing out in 2022 and the company has come up with a final Heritage Edition model to mark the occasion. It’s the ninth such edition of the current-generation car, and the tenth if you count its predecessor from 2005-2006.

The 2022 Ford GT LM Edition pays tribute to Ford’s Le Mans-winning supercar that includes wins in 2016 and the historic 1-2-3 podium sweep in 1966. Deliveries of the planned 20 units begin this fall with production wrapping up before the end of the year.

For the LM Edition, the carbon fibre body is lacquered in Liquid Silver exterior paint and finished in either a red or blue theme throughout, honouring the red and blue race livery of the Le Mans-winning No. 68 Ford GT. Customers can choose from exposed red or blue tinted carbon fibre that underscores the lower aerodynamics of the supercar. This includes tinting the ultra-lightweight material on the front splitter, side sills and door sills, plus engine bay louvers, mirror stalks and rear diffuser.

The 20-inch carbon fibre wheels have matching accents, while the Brembo brake callipers behind them are painted in black. Unique to the Ford GT LM is a 3D titanium-printed dual-exhaust that features a cyclonic design inside the tips. Above those, a titanium “GT LM” badge is also 3D-printed.

Race DNA is Literally Part of the Mix

Inside, the latest Heritage Edition model stands out with Alcantara-wrapped carbon fibre seats with a matching red or blue driver’s seat, and black passenger seat with accent stitching that matches the driver’s seat colour, as well as the engine start button.

The dashboard is wrapped in black leather and Alcantara, and naturally carbon fibre carries into the cabin, appearing on the console, vent registers and lower A-pillars with a matte finish.

You know what’s really cool here? The Ford Performance team managed to locate the third-place 2016 Ford GT (No. 69) racecar’s engine that was disassembled and shelved after the race, ground down the crankshaft into a powder, and developed a unique bespoke alloy used to 3D-print the numbered badge for each of the 20 special-edition supercars.

By the way, the Ford GT Mk II, a limited-edition, track-only GT co-developed by Ford Performance and Multimatic, also concludes by the end of the year with a total of 45 vehicles.

What will Ford do next to please sports car lovers and racing enthusiasts? As we saw recently, the all-new 2024 Ford Mustang lineup will include special Dark Horse S and Dark Horse R models for the track and racing. An electrified sports car will likely come at some point, and if the Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 drag racing prototype from 2020 is any indication, watch out!
