Synopsis: When Ford's attempt to buy Ferrari fell through, the US car giant embarked on a program to beat the famous Italian marque at the world's most prestigious race, the Le Mans 24 Hours. It was quite a battle. Ford's challenger was the GT40, which placed 1-2-3 at Le Mans in 1966 and won the next three consecutive years. This classic book about the GT40 - fastest sports racing car of its day - has been redesigned, expanded and updated to meet pent-up demand that has pushed the value of the original 1985 edition higher and higher.
About the Author: John Allen and Gordon Jones are both long-time sports car enthusiasts with an over-riding passion for the Ford GT40. They live respectively in Leeds and the Cognac area of France.

We see the development of the first works cars at FAV, Shelby and Alan Mann, the rise of the 7 litre Mark II and its successes followed by the all conquering Mark IV. The works cars, though, are only half the story. The bulk of the cars were raced by private teams and every major team and private entrant is portrayed.
