For anyone even remotely familiar with LeMans racing, the Ford GT40 will certainly be one of the most recognizable vehicles ever to be produced. After all, it was the Ford GT40 that took the reigns of the LeMans 24h race back in 1968, taking the throne from up until then untouchable Ferraris. Fast forward to modern times, when Ford decided to build a concept car in anticipation of the automaker’s centennial year and as part of its drive to showcase and revive its “heritage” names such as Mustang and Thunderbird. Revealed at the 2002 North American Auto Show, the Ford GT40 brought a modern reiteration of a classic race car, bringing the race-inspired styling into the modern era.
While the production version of the 2005 Ford GT was similar in overall appearance to the original GT40, the modern car is is bigger, wider, and most importantly 4 inches (100 mm) taller than the original’s 40 in (100 cm) overall height. Furthermore, even though the cars are visually related, structurally, there is no similarity between the modern GT and the 1960s GT40 that inspired it. This was a brand new modern supercar, wearing a 1960’s race car attire. And there is nothing wrong with that.
