Four times. The Ford GT40 won at Le Mans four times. In a row. Do you know what cars haven't done that? Hint: it's pretty much all of them, save for a few. The Bentley Speed 8 did not. The McLaren F1 did not. The Porsche 917K did not. The Jaguar D-Type did not. There's a reason it's a legend.


In fact, that record has only been matched by the Porsche 956, the Alfa Romeo 8C 2300, and the Audi R8, if you cheat and consider the Bentley Speed 8 just a closed-top Audi R8, which it wasn't but sort of was, and then you say "well just forget it, because it won five times anyways and started the entire current string of Audi domination."

Yeah, some people like Audis.

But this isn't about Audi, this is about the Ford GT40. Because the 1960s were a lot prettier than anything else.
