Ford launched its own effort to create a GT prototype in 1963. The most powerful of all the race cars participating in car races at the time was the Ferrari, and though Ford made efforts to acquire Ferrari in order to be able to compete in the Le Mans, these efforts ended in failure. Thereafter, noting the success Eric Broadley’s Lola GT was having against the Ferraris, Ford acquired the Lola GT and Ford contracted Broadley to develop a new design for a Ford GT. The GT40, revealed at the 1964 New York Auto Show, had a semi-monocoque configuration, and its height was a mere 40 inches. The GT40 began to participate in racing in 1964. This model represents a 1966 GT40 MK II, mounting a 7 lit. V8 engine of 485 HP. This vehicle garnered a 1-2-3 finish in the Daytona 24-hour race, and in the same year beat the Ferraris hands down for another 1-2-3 finish for its first Le Mans win.

  • This classic Ford GT40 Mk.II model will be 172mm long, 77mm wide and 45mm high.
  • The rugged and aggressive look is the traditional gene of American racing cars. The model design team has made meticulous efforts to replicate this look in the model.
  • The Ford GT40 Mk.II was powered by a specially tuned 7.0L V8 engine which could generate a power of over 500 hp. This engine was one of the crucial part that helped Ford dominate Le Mans. The engine compartment is reproduced in the model. By assembling it yourself, you can feel the precision and power of the car.
  • Another magic weapon the Ford GT40 Mk.II had was the quick-change brakes. The time needed to change those brakes during the race was greatly reduced. Our designers have replicated the key parts of the brakes. Please pay attention to the brakes during assembly. This seemingly simple part was a ground-breaking technology then.
  • Static models are favored by modellers for the precision replication of the real thing. Our designers have managed to present the details. What’s more, they have made steerable front wheels to meet the higher requirements of modellers.
  • Tires are the most important part of a racing car besides the engine. The tires of this model are made of quality vinyl material. This makes sure that the tire tread texture is realistically represented and the tires won’t have the bad smell of traditional rubber.
  • The safety belt made of special fabric material is not only realistic, but also easy to assemble. It is the choice of our design team after hundreds of tests and optimization.
  • The rear engine photo-etched metal grille further improves the precision of this model.
  • This model kit includes customized pre-cut painting mask stickers to reduce the difficulty of painting and masking.
