Ford GT40

I was a little surprised by this gorgeous car the other day when I went to a quick morning meet.

It’s a replica, sure. Built by Ricardo right here in the UK, but you wouldn’t know it. It’s definitely the most accurate one I’ve seen, right down to the big cast iron Ford V8 in the rear. It has the same presence as the real thing.

The seat position is bananas. ┬áMaybe not helped by my very short stature, but I was practically lying down. I can’t even imagine the feeling of driving one of these at speed.

One of the things that’s great about the car is that it actually gets used. Right now it’s being driven from northern England all the way to Le Mans. Crazy stuff.
