Allow us to provide ultimate proof that you are as old as you feel. This is – to our knowledge – the second Ford GT on Dutch soil, and it goes to a 90-year-old enthusiast. ‘Mr. Dekker’ is the brand new owner of this Ford GT Heritage Edition with 669 hp.
Hans Dekker is not just a Ford enthusiast. Together with other board members, he runs nine Ford dealers in the Netherlands. The Dekkerautogroep may tell you something. The Ford GT Heritage Edition is the crown on his successful career, says Ford. You can’t just buy the car, you have to be drawn.
The Heritage Edition
The Heritage Edition is an ode to race victories in the past. This Ford GT carries starting number 98, the same starting number as the Ford GT that won the 1966 24 Hours of Daytona. It was also in that year that Ford beat Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The other Dutch Ford GT
The first Dutch Ford GT came to the Netherlands in 2018. This car belongs to DJ Afrojack and entrepreneur Jeroen van den Berg. It is white with a full length blue stripe. According to Finnik, the Ford GT cost 656,147 euros. The starting price is about 550,000 euros.
