Photoessay: The Ford GT40

This car is a bit of a legend – the weapon that Ford used to beat Ferrari at their own game at Le Mans in the late 60s and early 70s. I was lucky to find an original, still-raced example locally, and even luckier to get the chance to photograph it. MT

  1. Nice find. 40″ off the ground of motoring art.
    I like how folks like Adrian Newey still race these each year at the Goodwood Revival in the UK.
