Ford GT40 – 1/12 scale model
The Ford GT40 is an American high-performance endurance racing car. The Mk I, Mk II, and Mk III variants were designed and built in England based upon the British Lola Mk6. Only the Mk IV model was designed and built in the United States. The range was powered by a series of American-built Ford V8 engines modified for racing.
The GT40 effort was launched by Ford Motor Company to win long-distance sports car races against Ferrari, which won every 24 Hours of Le Mans race from 1960 to 1965. The GT40 broke Ferrari’s streak in 1966 and went on to win the next three annual races. The Mk IV became the only car designed and built entirely in the United States to achieve the overall win at Le Mans.
The model is new in box.
