A Ford GT has been spotted doing rounds at the Nurburgring for the first time, despite the company previously saying it would not be chasing lap records with its flagship supercar.
The blue vehicle appears to be stock – or close to it – and wears a UK registration plate. According to overseas reports, this is the same GT that visited the Goodwood Festival of Speed last month.
Audi RS3 production halted due to WLTP, set to resume in 2019
Audi has stopped production of the RS3 Sportback and sedan due to the new Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), with the models currently unavailable to order in Australia.
The brand's local arm confirmed the news this week with CarAdvice, after a keen-eyed reader noticed the Sportback (hatch) and sedan versions of Audi's hottest small car were no longer listed on the Australian website.
Shaun Cleary, corporate communications manager for Audi's local division, said:
Ford has revealed the 2019 GT Heritage Edition, which commemorates half a century since the 1968 and 1969 Le Mans victories by the Ford GT40 wearing the iconic Gulf Oil livery.
Confirming the rumours from a month ago – which suggested the GT would be offered for the 2019 model year in the Gulf livery – the 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition offers the unique exterior finish along with special interior finishes to match the eye-catching colour scheme.
