We are just over a month away from the Ford GT’s historic return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. On the 50th anniversary of the car’s historic finish, Ford Performance is bringing forth its all-new GT on the world stage. In honor of this undertaking, Ford Performance is sharing a five-part documentary series, titled The Return, about the car’s development and the third installment hit the Internet today.
In the first Chapter, titled The Decision, Ford luminaries like Bill Ford and Raj Nair, executive vice president, Ford Global Product Development, and chief technical officer, gave us the background on the choice to revive the legendary GT. The next chapter, titled The Cutting Edge, Dave Pericak and the team discuss the challenges of simultaneously building a street car and a race car capable of competing with the best in the world.
