Description

The story of a monumental battle as Ford and Ferrari vied for racing supremacy at Le Mans in 1966.

The development of Ford’s GT40, Carroll Shelby’s and Ken Miles’ involvement and the role of Ferrari’s driver, John Surtees.

The gripping story of the legendary fight between two giants of the automotive world.

What happened when America’s richest car company, producing many thousands of cars per year, went head-to-head with Ferrari of Italy in the mid ?60s? This is the story of an unstoppable force coming up against the stubbornness of an immovable object ? that is, Ford against Ferrari. Enzo Ferrari, whose company produced fewer than four hundred cars per year in 1963, wasn?t going to bow to Ford after he had turned down its offer to buy his company. The only place left to duke it out was on the racetracks of the world – and one in particular: Le Mans ’66.
