Ford Holman Moody GT Kicks Up The Retro at the New York Auto Show
It's gold. It's red. It costs a lot of green.

Meet the 2022 Ford GT Holman Moody Heritage Edition. It pays tribute to the company’s 1966 Le Mans sweep and the race team that innovated the capability of the GT40 MK II to deliver a brake setup matching the race car’s 200 mph-plus speeds.

Center stage at the Ford booth at the New York Auto Show is where a race car of this magnitude deserves to be and that's where it is, bringing crowds and smiles to all who see it.

“Of all the Ford GT Heritage Edition liveries we’ve done, the Holman Moody Heritage Edition’s can’t-miss signature gold and red theme is an epic tribute to our 1966 Le Mans finish,” said Mike Severson, Ford GT program manager. “Inspired by one of the most well-known Ford GT40 race cars, this latest Ford GT honors the Holman Moody race team’s know-how and ability to out-innovate global competitors.”

The unique gold and red livery of the limited-edition supercar includes signature Oxford White roundels with No. 5 stamped on the doors, hood and rear wing – all matching the appearance of the 1966 Ford GT40 raced by Holman Moody. Exposed gloss carbon fiber components are prominent, including on the 20-inch wheels, front splitter, side sills, mirrors, engine louvers and rear diffuser. Brembo® brake calipers lacquered in black with silver graphics, plus black lug nuts further modernize the aesthetic.

If you're the type who doesn't have to ask how much this instantly collectible GT costs, be sure to sweet talk your way onto Ford's list of "approved" GT customers if you're not already there. Deliveries start this spring!
