The Ford That Beat Ferrari : A Racing History of the GT40 (3rd edition) Hardback


This new edition of a classic book tells the story of the celebrated Ford GT40 through a remarkable array of over 850 period photographs, many of them in colour.

After Ford unsuccessfully attempted to buy Ferrari, in 1963, the American car giant instead embarked on its own racing programme in a bid to beat the famous Italian marque at the world's most prestigious race, the Le Mans 24 Hours, as told in the forthcoming Hollywood movie Ford v.

Ferrari. The mission was eventually accomplished: Ford's challenger in this battle, the GT40, finished 1-2-3 at Le Mans in 1966 and won for the next three years as well.

This book, originally published in 1985 and redesigned in 2005, is now available again due to popular demand, with further revision to keep the information up-to-date.
