Ford GT40 | GregoryWest

The Ford GT40 has to be one of the most beautiful things on the planet. Never mind cars; if all it did was toast bread, we’d be better off as a species that we’re capable of such timeless design. Born in 1964 at just forty inches tall (hence the name), this automotive giant’s legacy includes Carroll Shelby, four consecutive victories at 24 Hours of Le Mans, and the desire to spite Mr. Enzo Ferrari. It’s incredible to think that the GT40 was already tearing up the road at a time when most people were still watching black-and-white TV.
