The Ford GT40 is a legendary race car that managed to win the world’s most famous endurance race an incredible four times in a row between 1966 and 1969. A mere 107 units of the original GT40 were ever produced.
QuickWorks Photo has recently presented some really stunning photos of a glorious Ford GT painted with a truly iconic Gulf Oil racing livery combining blue and bright orange elements. Back in 2005, Ford revived the GT nameplate with a road-going model powered by a supercharged V8 engine. Earlier in the year, the third-generation GT was unveiled.
All GT40s utilised V8 engines ranging from 4.2-litres right up to 7.0-litres, compared to the V12s used by Ferrari. Throughout the model’s five year production run starting in 1964, a selection of iterations were launched in an effort to continue to lead the field at races around the world.
