The first car was named the GT (for Grand Touring) with the 40 representing its overall height of 40 inches (1.02 m, measured at the windshield) as required by the rules. Large displacement Ford V8 engines (4.7 liter and 7 liter) were used, compared with the Ferrari V12 which displaced 3.0 liter or 4.0 liter.

One Response to GT40 P/1015

  • This car was at one of the Goodwood July events where it featured in one where Ford was being celebrated in the early 2000’s – along with the 2 other 66 Le Mans top 3 finishers.

    Somewhere I may have pictures…

    I was at the ’66 Le Mans race (spectator!). The opening hours were spectacular while Ferrari P3’s were running…180-190 all running close up past the pits to the Dunlop Bridge – what a sight and sound!
