When in 1966 Ford GT40 dominated the most difficult of all racing events, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, it created one of the most remarkable stories in the automotive world. 50 years later, in 2016 the Detroit Motor Show was stolen by a car carefully kept in secret. The supercar Ford GT debuted in the Motor City and left spectators and experts in awe. This Ford GT art left us in a similar condition. This is why we are more than happy to track the Ford GT evolution as an art print.
This Ford GT art print is beautiful display of Ford`s racing DNA
The Ford GT debut showed beautiful yet futuristic, a predator-like sports car in a street-legal specification. It was filled with a carbon fiber and powered by an innovative 6-cylinder engine, placed behind the cockpit. Naturally, Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Porsche immediately took their notepads to write down few remarks. The engine was paired with a couple of turbochargers enabling its power output over 600 hp. Nothing less than spectacular. Packed with a beautiful design combining a machine and a sculpture and you`ll get the thrill of sharing a space with this Ford GT.
The spectacular commemoration of the 1966 Ford GT40 Le Mans victory wasn’t over with just the launch of a new car. It went where it belongs – at La Sarthe circuit, which hosts the gruesome 24 Hours of Le Mans competition. And guess what, the new Ford GT won its Le Mans debut in 2016 by winning the GTE category. This is what we call a spectacular comeback!
Today, Ford GT is still in production but not all of you can get it, even if money is not an object. If you want to buy one of these, you should apply for this merit and it is possible to be rejected.
This Ford GT art print won’t reject you. It will bring you discreet memory of a racing glory and engineering excellence. Joel Clark is the author of this art print of Ford GT. Think of him as a spectacular artist working with the unique technique of a hand cut vinyl.
