Here's a treat for Ford fanboys and motorsports geeks alike. Ford dropped a live-action promo of the latest Heritage Edition of their Ford GT supercar earlier this week and, as expected, it looks (and sounds) like one hell of a track weapon. Nearly a year after the car's announcement, we finally get to see a live one stretch its legs.

Ford has this charming tradition of annually launching a new Heritage Edition GT to honor the legacy of the original GT40. In keeping with tradition, the 2021 model honors their '66 win at Daytona with a modern take on Ken Mile's #98 race livery. It seems Ford decided there's no better way to honor the late Motorsports Hall of Famer than to have his own son, Peter Miles, and current Ford hot shoe, Joey Hand, debut the car on the very grounds its ancestor claimed its storied victory.

I'm not one to care much for manufacturer promos, but this honestly deserves a quick watch. Ford seems pretty bang on when it comes to embracing the future while never forgetting its past.

    • Objectively speaking, the GT isn’t any faster than it’s less expensive rivals. I’m fact, in one instance, it got its lap record at an American track taken by a Corvette. But it’s that rawness of feeling like a racing homologation special,...
