Ken Miles' Son Takes the Ford GT 40 Heritage Edition Around Daytona

Peter Miles hits the track with this special edition Ford GT created to celebrate 55 years since his father took the win at Daytona

To commemorate the 55th anniversary and pay homage to Ken Miles’ GT40 victories at the Daytona’s 24 Hour Race

a limited-run GT Heritage Edition was created last year by Ford.

Ken Miles is a racing legend, and his role in the development of the iconic Ford GT was vital to the team's success at Le Mans & Daytona

The GT40, which Miles had helped improve, crushed the Ferraris at several racing venues

Fast forward to today, his son, Peter Miles, recently had the chance to drive the new 2021 Ford GT Heritage Edition

He was ecstatic that Ford did this for him.

The new Ford GT Heritage Edition for 2021 is dressed in a shade of Frozen White pearl with an asymmetrical graphic livery

reminiscent of the original #98 Ford GT MkII

The Ford GT is powered by a twin-turbo 3.5 Liter EcoBoost V-6 that produces 660 hp & 550 lb-ft

The interior is sporty laden with Alcantara & Carbon Fiber

The modern GT also comes with active aero, the number #98 visible on this Heritage edition

Along with the GT Heritage Edition, Ford also launched a Studio Collector’s Edition, limited to just 40 examples.
