Back in 1966, Ford Motor Company entered the 24 Hours of LeMans endurance race with the then-new GT40 race car and they walked away with not just the win – but the top three spots. The Ford GT40 was the first American car to crush the European competition and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of that incredible run, the automaker is offering a limited run of uniquely decorated performance vehicles specifically for the French market.

50th Anniversary of LeMans Edition Mustang, Focus and Fiesta
Ford Motor Company’s four key performance vehicles in France are the Mustang, the Fiesta ST and the Focus, in both ST and RS form. The company will build 50 examples of each of those cars with the 50th Anniversary of LeMans package, leading to a total production run of just 200 units.

Like the #2 Ford GT40 which won the 1966 24 Hours of LeMans, each of these 50th Anniversary cars will be painted Black Mica and clad with full length grey racing stripes. Each vehicle also gets unique badging on the inside and outside, along with the standard features below, broken down by model.

The 50th Anniversary Mustang GT comes with the Premium Pack, 19 inch wheels and navigation.

The 50th Anniversary Fiesta ST comes with the Performance Pack and the Parking Pack, with the key features of those being the parking aids, the 17 inch wheels and red painted brake calipers.
