This 1/18th scale diecast replica commemorates the 50th Anniversary of one of the most popular finishes in 24 Hours of Le Mans history. With Ford Motor Company battling Ferrari to earn its first Le Mans victory, Ford and their partner, Shelby American, entered several GT40 Mark II’s into the event. The GT40’s which were built by the legendary Holman Moody company, not only beat Ferrari, but they dominated the race, finishing an impressive 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. This #1 car driven by Carroll Shelby’s top driver, Ken Miles, and co-driver Denis Hulme, were in position to win the famed event but ended up finishing 2nd when Ford Motor Company staged the top 3 cars to take the checkered flag together.
