The Ford GT-R is the 21st century version of one of the most recognizable and successful sports cars in history – the Ford GT40. Designed and constructed at the direction of Henry Ford II following Ford's failed bid to purchase Ferrari in the early 1960s, the Ford GT40 debuted at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1964. After a couple of heartbreaking defeats at Le Mans, the Ford GT40 scored a dramatic victory there in 1966, the first of four consecutive wins for Ford at the French classic.
Nearly forty years after its success at Le Mans, the Ford Motor Company reprised the iconic Ford GT40 shape with a modern version of the Ford GT which sold in limited quantities in 2005 and 2006. Noted race car constructor Kevin Doran used the car as the basis for a new generation of racing Ford GTs featuring a potent five liter V8 mounted amidship and updated aerodynamics.iRacers have their choice of the GT2 and GT3 versions of the Ford GT.
