Buff Barnaby says:

GT 40 most desirable American car.

Flat Plane Snake says:

At that point, Ferraris goal was to keep Ford from repeating history and capturing the 1st 2nd and 3rd positions.

silverspear21 says:

66' Le mans/Ford v Ferrari made me realize I should never get rid of my RS. I would only want to be filthy rich to be able to buy a GT. (and maybe a koenigsegg 🙂 )

Brian E says:

Made me cry dammit

Peter Lisyak says:

What an achievement, 1966 and again 50 years later on the first try

Lorraine Lee says:

This is a logical evolution of an Iconic Americana Automobile . It's so like FORD to lead the way in this new frontier of electric automobiles.

Chad Jackson says:

they were pressed for time because the le mans car started with a mustang concept not a ford GT. They could have taken the Zetec platform which was used in F1 and did a v8 at the same weight. Nobody wants a Ford GT with a lousy v6 that barely beats the lamborghini v12 in fuel economy. But Ford made like 1/2 the cars they made in 05/06 and sold them to rich "influencers" instead of real fans of the gt40. Ford should have made a few updates to the 05/06 car and raced it. It WAS raced in the gt350 category if I recall and had some success, even a podium finish. They should have sold 50,000 of them to the public at 100k and THAT would have been an homage to the 50 year anniversary of the gt40. Not this hypercar version that really doesnt do the gt40 name justice.

The Bronx Pops ! says:
