Ford’s GT is Back and Returning to Le Mans

Let’s make this simple.

We are so excited.

Ok, maybe that was too simple.

Ford has announced their Ford GT race car that is “based on the all-new ultra-high-performance supercar that goes on sale next year” is returning to Le Mans.

“The Ford GT race car will compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans – referred to by many as the Grand Prix of Endurance and Efficiency – starting next year.”

Both the production car and race car will arrive in 2016 to mark the 50th anniversary of Ford GT race cars placing 1-2-3 at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.

“Ford went on to repeat its victory at Le Mans in 1967, 1968 and 1969.”

Yes, this is going to be good.

As we have to wait until next year for the race, let’s take a moment and look at some other iconic Ford cars.

The allure, the mystery, the curves, the body – we want more.

We’d say it’s time to re-watch the Ford GT race car teaser clip again…
