Ford GT40 MKII "Nº 1" 1966
An icon in motorsport
It happened in 1966 at the most famous race in the world in north-west France: the light blue Ford GT 40 was supposed to be the first to cross the finish line, beating arch-rival Ferrari in the process. Shortly after the Fords with starting numbers 1 and 2 crossed the finish line and the race was waved off, the confusion was great. Four pilots thought they had won the race. However, due to the greater distance covered, the GT 40 with starting number 2 won, although the car with number 1 was in the lead. It was the closest finish of all times in this race. The Ford GT 40 was redesigned especially for the 1966 season - the 4.7 liter engine was replaced by a larger, more powerful 7.0 liter engine in order to win the race.
