    In that entire video not once was Carrol Shelby mentioned and it was his design, engine build and driver choice that made the GT successful for Ford. Often with him directly at odds with Ford executives that did not understand his vision. Watch the movie it is SUPREMELY more accurate as to what happened.

    It was a battle of egos and American press backed Ford with a multimillion dollar automotive conglomerate that challenged an almost bankrupt but mythological race pedigree of Ferrari that had a leg up on almost similar yet proven track legends of Bentleys and Jaguars. Ford were at it with almost no budgetary restrictions for almost two years but then they predictably managed to win in 1966. I think the bigger story than Ford vs Ferrari is Porsche vs The World. I wish someone would make a movie on the the 917 that dwarfed efforts of every motor manufacturer with an unmatchable feat of 16 wins at Le Mans. I wish I had the money to put it on screen. It's the stuif real legends are made up of

    I'm so glad ferrari didn't sell to those soul-less uber-capitalists (nothing wrong with capitalism but when you ruin it for everyone-looking at you zuckerberg, bezos, pharma and defense ceo's- it kinda spoils the game). I'm American, and I'm very proud of what we've done with some of our cars, but other than I guess the viper and vette, we don't have any super cars or sports cars that are genuinely ours. The ford gt was a mostly finished european chassis, with european designers and engineers and drivers (which is why it won) yet lots of folks over here love to pat themselves on the back about how we stuck it to those horrible bollocks bags are ferrari But we don't deserve to act that way about it. We almost ruined the most special brand in motoring history and of course we got greedy and tried to buy the race team too. HOW on earth is that wrong of enzo, to not want to sell the thing in life that mattered most to him when that was never what was supposed to happen? I just don't get why people view it like that. I think he's a badass for sticking to his love and principals in the face of money. He'd rather shutter the company than see a bunch of demons in suits bastardize his race cars. Idk, we should be proud of the corvette, and muscle cars, and not bowing to the epa and the government like the rest of the world by making all of our cars soul-less hybrid, automatic, electric steering suv's. We're doing that now, and it breaks my heart, but we held out longer than almost everyone else. That's something to be proud of. Enzo telling us to shove it for wanting to buy his baby? Not so much, as far as I can tell lol

    And yet, when Ford entered the GT40s the first time, the writing was on the wall at Modena: 'They're coming for us'. Even worse for them, was losing the GT category that year, to Ford powered Cobras. A sign of what was to come. After the '66 through '69 dominance of Ford, and then two years of Porsche 917 kicking their asses, Ferrari abandoned the prototype sports car racing forever, to focus solely on F1. It was the end of little companies being a dominant force in sports car racing, with McLaren giving way to Porsche, too, in the Can-Am challenge racing cup in America.

    Always a pleasure to hear James. I'm not sure if he intentionally abbreviated the Ford/Ferrari initial meeting(s) story or is unaware of the actual history. I met Roy Lund mere days before his relatively recent death. We discussed the meetings with Enzo. There were actual two meetings. The first meeting was the technical team that went over with he as their engineering head. All went well in that initial meeting and Ford then sent over the accountants and so-called "suits". That, of course, was the end of the deal.

    Ah the classic underdog tale of the owner of a massive American corporation being slighted by the owner of a small, financially failing Italian company and then sinking millions upon millions of dollars into a slapdash racing program to get revenge. It warms the heart. Also, the movie was amazing, I love James May and the GT40 is my favorite car of all time (don’t @ me bro). But sometimes you just gotta sit back and realize how ridiculous the whole situation is, ya know?

    Just for context, $16 million in 1963 would be roughly $143 million today. Still seems a bit of a bargain, but of course Ferrari is not what it was in 1963 either.

      @dhio Ferrari had been winning because everyone at the company including Enzo were personally involved in the project and had been operating on shoestring budgets to put together whatever they could. Ferrari wasn't always the company that we see it as today. They were winning, yes. But they were also the underdog when you consider the limited resources they had to work with. Meanwhile Ford had basically all the money in the world when it came to car industry.

    *Emergency, the story behind the virus. There is a mass genocide going on.* Canada has authorized sending people against their will to isolation camps, and travelers to Canada are required to go to isolation buildings, and residents being moved out of Province and even Country. Same in Australia. *The virus has a two week incubation period.* After two week isolated you are good to go according to prior information. *There was 12000000 exterminated by Roman Catholic Adolf Hitler during WW2. The Vatican (Pope's headquarters) confirming to be over 13000000 in the US alone.* No coward will inherit God's kingdom. I think planes spraying over your cities is to kill you. Why else would it be happening? *Why did the so called British Royal who just died take the last name of the so called Queen? To try to further the fraud that the British are the continuation of the Biblical line of King David. That is one of the reasons WW2 started. To distract you from the fraud. Women inherit men's last names, not the other way around. Philip was a German, then he became a Greek citizen and then a British Royal. He wasn't even a British citizen. (Search Queen Elizabeth wedding!) People don't realize that Britain is part of the Roman Empire. Prince Charles was just hugging the Pope recently, and congratulating him on his war. The head of England is supposedly God's representative and defender of the faith. So Charles hugging the Pope, is like God's representative hugging Satan's.* Just like Hitler started a war with Russia, so they are trying to start a war with Russia and China now. *The Pope has been exposed as the man (King) in control of the Roman Empire mentioned in Revelation Apocalypse 17, 18 of the Bible. He is the King of the Vatican City/ Country. He has his own crown and flag. On his crown is the number 666 in Latin (a picture of the triple tiered crown(also referred to as a mitre) with 666 on it, is on the Pope's flag).* The Bible mentions that the leaders of Rome's group would be clothed in *scarlet (Catholic Cardinals)* and *purple (Catholic Bishops).* This group would be responsible for all the people exterminated from the earth. *It was the Catholic Adolf Hitler who exterminated 12000000 people for Rome, so that the British side of the Roman Empire would not fall, as they had no legal heir.* They imported one from Germany, but needed the war to kill lots of people that knew of the fraud and to create a smoke screen. *The Pope rules from his compound in the Vatican, Rome Italy.* The compound is behind very high walls and guarded by two nation's military. *The Swiss guard directly guard the Vatican compound. Switzerland is neutral because it keeps the Empire's money, and if any nation was to attack the Pope, then the Countries of the Roman Empire would say that they attacked an innocent neutral Country. The Swiss guard wear what looks like clown suits with stripes going down them, but they have weapons and will kill.* The Italian Army also protects the Pope. This religion/ Empire siphons the money from the people's of the world to them. *Like the Bible prophecy of Revelation Apocalypse 17, 18 mentions that the great city riding the Roman Empire is clothed in all kinds of precious stones. In fact a Roman Emperor bragged that when he found Rome it was clothed in brick, but when he was finished it was clothed in marble.* Magna Carta proves that Britain is part of the Roman Empire. *The Magna Carta treaty deals with when people rebel against the Roman Empire. It talks about how a nation and its overlords will be reimbursed for warring against their own people. It dictates that the people should be locked down, and then they will go in and slaughter them.* Britain pretended to have separated from Rome, on account of it being satanic, and the Pope having 666 (Vicarious Filii Dei, in Latin) on his crown. People were duped in to thinking the British way was the truth. *Social media sharing sites are under attack, because the oppressors want to silence information* about it. *During WW2 a Catholic Adolf Hitler killed 12000000 people under the guise of a fake typhus epidemic. Typhus still exists, but no where is it handled, like that time. Now we have the so called corona virus pandemic, where nearly 98% make a complete recovery. They are instituting extreme measures, just like for the typhus epidemic.* In Canada they are putting people in temporary concentration camps. Canada is one of the most evil oppressive places on earth. Canada is controlled by the British Empire. Rome and Britain put a French colony right in the middle of an English Country, and put in to Canada's constitution that the French would be guaranteed their Catholic faith. If Canadians try to stop this fake Church/ Empire, then they will call it treason, for going against the Canadian constitution and kill them. *Roman Catholic, as in the Church of Revelation Apocalypse 17, 18 that rides the Roman Empire.* At the end of the world as we know it now, the Roman empire will have 10 Kingdoms. The Kingdom's are, or have been France, Germany, Italy, Britain, Spain, Portugal, Turkey(former headquarters of the Roman Empire, Constantinople (now Istanbul), and others, and the places they conquered. Like Canada being set up for perpetual enslavement, so other places are also, like India is completely controlled by Britain. Canada, Australia, India and others are Constitutional Monarchies, in which the Queen is the supreme ruler. They are free to move about in their cages. Who's head is on your money? *Many nations live in poverty while Rome and Britain siphons off your money and natural resources, India a prime example.* Elizabeth married a German, who renounced his German citizenship to become a Greek citizen and from there became a British citizen, and was pronounced a Duke. *When the German Philip married now British Queen Elizabeth he took her name in stead of her taking his name. The Bible prophecy says that a man would not fail to sit on David's throne.* Don't let them start a war to hide this again. *The Bible said that the Roman Empire would split in to two, and from this two, there would be ten Kingdoms at the end. Five Kingdom's from each leg.* Like Hitler *looted burned and exterminated under the guise of a typhus epidemic, so now they are looting, burning and exterminating under the guise of a corona virus.* A cold virus has never been seen, nor is there a cure, but supposedly now, there are images and vaccines from every place for the corona virus. *Corona means crown or rulership (government). A corona virus is some thing attacking the crown, rulership(government).* In Britain, Canada Australia and others the justice system represents the British Crown. Some day the world's people will have to unite, to end this reign of terror. To use a poker term, we need a Royal Flush. *Clear SE-one search and history, and browser cache and history, so they don't know you read this. Hide copies, share, distribute them, Be very careful. Pray for me and you!* Zyklon B extermination gas = corona virus? Hitler used zyklon b, and automobile exhaust gas blown in your window also. *Why would planes be spraying of your cities? Government sprays cities, corona virus occurs. If you have a hard time breathing from that, they will finish you off at the hospital. Nurses blew the whistle on that.* Why would the military be giving the vaccines? *Military personnel have to start taking a stand. Do you want God and history to condemn you?* The Bible says that *two legs come out of the Roman Empire,* which would be *Roman Catholicism and Protestantism.* The Bible says that they would put you to death, if you did not worship the image. The image is the cross, and it symbolizes the religious beliefs. Canada moving towards a forced symbol of acceptance of Church and State, or no work or travel? If you don't have the sign of the cross you can not buy or sell. Look at Hong Kong where they were allowed to sell on international markets under the control of Britain, but when the lease ended and Britain left, they have started a war of words, political intrigue and are trying to start a physical war to stop them from selling. *Christain Countries are trying to start a war with China and Russia, to hide their genocide.* They also radiate. *Donald J. Trump had authorized operation warp speed to force vaccinate the American population, not Bill Gates.* Spanish plague(1918) vaccine was for bacterial infection, but the plague was a virus. *Most Christian Countries were forbidden to report on the plague,* hidding its details under war powers. **The Pope and British Royals were found guilty of genocide, by the International Criminal Court, just before corona virus outbreak.** Donald J Trump attacked the International Court via US financial system. Did Rome just completely burn a Native city in Canada? Multiple mass graves of exterminated found on multiple Church run properties across Canada, so Natives burned down the Churches, effectively saying we don't want this abomination on *our land.* Rev. 17,18 Rome and false church riding it, kills. Virus=information. The first Pope(263) to try to expose the world wide conspiracy, died 6 days later. Please help me(266) to expose this (1John5:19)! *A red headed bird was going to reveal all, but evil men seam to have caged him, so it would be dangerous for him to sing, but one from his nest will do it. Listen for it!* The Bible's 1Corinthians9:5, MARK1:30 expose a massive worldwide conspiracy. Australia has a police state, including militarized checkpoints and home searches. Massive poison purchase and UK contracting cadaver services. Every Country must take away Church tax exempt status, in order to become free, until Roman Empire changes are removed! +9??

    I know the real story behind the race in '66 and the development of the GT40, and just saw 'Ford v, Ferrari' this weekend. Superb film. As a cinema fan I appreciate the needs of condensing the story and making clearly defined characters so the film is cohesive. But even knowing where it was wrong and the technical failures such as tracks not looking right and glowing hot metal being handled bare handed five minutes later, I found the film very well done and enjoyable. All that being said I'd prefer a 12 hour long film about it written and dircted by James May.

    Boy, they sure are milking this 50+ yr old story like nothing else has ever happened in Le Man or other racing circuits since then. Reciting the same old same old story. This sounds like just a product placement for the movie. Move on already for Chris sake. Why not direct the attention to how Mazda dominated 1991 Le Man and then the gov body promptly banned rotary engine after that. Or maybe how Bentley and Peugeot managed to steal 2003 and 2009, respectively from the Audi stranglehold on Le Man. Or how hybrid requirement completely changed the race. But of course, it's so much easy to pander to the public with something already baked.

    I love how the Italians used to deal with america government regarding the import cars. "We make cars, if you want one this is its price and we do not do modifications".

      The way the Italians did business with the US government in the '40s was a bit less idealistic. They actually stole a ship and took it inland to loot and strip.

    You will never see on this show the story of how Honda and more particularly Soichiro Honda DESTROYED and ANNIHILATED ferrari, porsche, jaguar etc in formula 1 and other motorsports and how they conquered the world and became the most legendary name in all of motorsports history. You won't ever see that on a show like the Grand Tour or Top Gear. That's how biased, racist and disgusting the British press is. And yea, GT might be american but it's still made by brits.

    Considering Ford's treatment of Aston Martin I think Ferrari dodged a bullet there. I don't even like Ferrari but would still be on their side. Ford's approach is a bit like a billionaire owning a football team and just throwing loads of money at it until they win the championship. I will admit that the GT40 is easily one of the coolest cars ever seen at Le Mans.

    Can all the Ford glorifiers just look at the video snippet and try and work out (if you can) how long it actually took the "so called" Ford engineers to get the car to the 66 race. I say "so called" because when the Americans got to Engand (for help) all they did at the start of the project was cause angst with their English cousins, and that's why it took them all that time to address the cars characteristics and make changes, again if it wasn't for the Brits, there would be no GT40.

    So it's kinda like when everyone else dropped out of the bid to build a war vehicle to replace the war horse and the jeep ruled until Chrysler took over and turned an icon into a huge lumbering p.o.s. But still called it jeep when it's clearly not. Just cuz you finance something but, not even make it in house and not using your own employees and factories makes them hypocrites!
