Watch the story behind our return to Le Mans

April 18, 2016

Fifty years after our legendary one-two-three victory at the 1966 Le Mans 24 hour race with the original Ford GT40, we’re returning to the iconic race with an all-new Ford GT.

Our new five-part series – “Ford GT: The Return” – goes behind the scenes to find out what it takes to simultaneously develop a ground-breaking new supercar and a race car capable of taking on the world’s toughest endurance motor-race.
 

Episode 1: The Decision – turns the clock back half a century to look at what first inspired Ford’s entry into the  Le Mans 24 hour race in the original Ford GT40, and how the 1966 success inspired a return 50 years later

 

Episode 2: The Cutting Edge – When Ford designed the all-new Ford GT, it sought to strike the perfect balance of everyday driver comfort and the demands of a supercar competing on the global sports car racing stage.
