The Ford GT40 is a high performance American-British racing car, built and designed in England (MkI, MkII, and MkIII) and in the United States (MkIV) respectively, and powered by a series of American-built engines, which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans four consecutive times, from 1966 to 1969 (1966 being the Mk II, 1967 the Mk IV, and 1968-1969 the oldest chassis design, the Mk I). In 1966, at the attendance of Henry Ford II himself in Le Mans, the MkII GT40 provided Ford with the first overall Le Mans victory for an American manufacturer 34 and the first victory for an American manufacturer at a major European race since Jimmy Murphy´s triumph with Duesenberg at the 1921 French Grand Prix. In 1967 the Mk IV GT40 would become the only entry designed and produced entirely within the United States to claim an overall win at Le Mans.5 (Wikipedia)
This magnificent Ferrari vanquishing specimen was found at the 150 Years of Transport Rally, held earlier this year near Bowral, in the Southern Highlands of NSW, Australia. Sadly, no sound bite is available!
