The 1966 Ford GT40 MkII is a classic racing car that appears in every Forza title except Forza Motorsport 6: Apex. It is featured as an AI opponent in Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious.

The GT40 is a series of racing cars developed by Ford and Lola during the 1960s. The MkII was introduced in 1966 and is notable for finishing the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans in first, second and third position, beating Ferrari in the process.[1]

In 2005, the GT name was reintroduced for a road-going mid-engined supercar which itself received a successor in 2017.

Variants Edit

  • Ford GT40 MkII - An unmarked variant of the Ford GT40 that appears in all titles up to Forza Horizon 3.
  • 1966 Ford #2 GT40 Mk II Le Mans - A marked variant of the Ford GT40 that appears in Forza Motorsport 7.

Description Edit

The original Ford GT40 gave the Ferraris something to think about and the MkII earned American V8’s some respect amidst European GT race cars. Take a seat in this classic prototype and see what a happens when Ford and Lola come together with a common goal of domination.
— forzamotorsport.net (Forza Horizon)[2] 
Few American race cars have found (or so rightly deserved) such international acclaim as the GT40 MkII, which in and of itself was an international collaboration between Ford’s Advanced Vehicles division and chassis constructor Lola of the UK. Ford had seen success with the Shelby Cobras, but a feud with Ferrari, combined with a lack of endurance racing success in the prototype class, meant that money flowed into FAV/Lola to design a world-beater. The original GT40 was a promising concept that was not up to snuff on the track, being fragile and unstable at speed, so Ford called on Carroll Shelby once again to help perfect the design. Fitting a lightened 427 V8 derived from their NASCAR program and shoring up the weak gearbox that plagued the MkIs, the GT40 finally flourished as a racer. Far and away the fastest vehicle on the straights, the only way the Ferraris could beat the GT40 was to hope they broke down first. In 1966, however, it was the high-strung Ferraris who failed. To be fair, out of a total field of 13 GT40s, only three survived to finish the race—but those three crossed the line first, second, and third for a complete sweep of the podium. The GT40 gave Ford a dominating win at the toughest motor racing event on earth, rightly earning a place in the history books as well as your garage.
