The Ford GT succeeded after 7 failures to exploit the GT40 legend | Jason Cammisa Revelations | Ep. 22 - Hagerty Media
It took 37 years of cranking for Ford to successfully start the mid-engined follow-up to the historic GT40 race car. In the process, Ford created — and abandoned — at least seven mid-engined cars meant to recapture the glory from the famous victor of the Ford vs. Ferrari battle at Le Mans. In this episode of Revelations, automotive journalist Jason Cammisa tells the fascinating backstory of the 2005-2006 Ford GT — and how it, like the seven mid-engined attempts before it — was almost killed off before it had a chance.
