A friend here with GT on order was called by Ford to see if he wanted the option as only very few are going to be made.  Do not recall the exact number (20 maybe).  Option price is additional $50K for the paint.

Gulf wanted a hefty fee to use the colors in 2006. Ford didn't want to pay and so the colors are different. This year it looks like part of the $ is going to Gulf. Also it's more than just a color change.

..........an optional package provides exposed carbon fiber accents for both the interior and exterior of the Ford GT Heritage Edition. For 2019, the package features the No. 9 graphics on the hood and doors, as well as a ghosted image on the interior door panels. For 2020, No. 6 honors the same car that went on to win Le Mans in 1969 with a different number.

The Heritage Edition features exposed carbon fiber A-pillars and sports unique 20-inch one-piece forged aluminum wheels in high-gloss dark stainless with black lug nuts. Orange calipers and silver rearview mirror caps complete the look.

Ebony Alcantara wraps the seats, instrument panel, pillars, headliner and steering wheel. Contrasting blue and orange stitching accentuates the seats and steering wheel, with a new seat embossment inspired by the original 1968 Le Mans-winning car as well as clear and polished anodized paddle shifters.

High-gloss dark stainless appliqués accent the instrument panel, door register bezels and x-brace to round out the interior.

Much like previous heritage models, the Ford GT Heritage Edition features a unique serialized identification plate, plus exposed matte carbon fiber door sills, air register pods and center console.

Finally IMHO if you've got the $$$ to throw at a 6 cylinder euro racer what's another $50,000. I have certain hard and fast rules. Fords are American cars (OK I'd take a Lotus Cortina). Mustangs are pony cars. Fairlanes with big blocks are Muscle cars. ALL hot rods have 8 cylinders. 6 cylinders are for mom's grocery getter.
