|Next week’s 24 Hours of Le Mans is a big deal for Ford. It marks the 50th anniversary of it's victory over Ferrari at the French endurance race in 1966, and Ford hopes to make a splash this year with its new GT. |
It’s a racing version of the road-going supercar inspired by the GT40 that won Le Mans 50 years ago.
| For Le Mans, it will be a four-car shot at glory.|
The GT can only hope for a class win in the category for production cars; it doesn’t have the speed to compete with the top-level hybrid prototypes from Audi, Porsche, and Toyota.
