The Ford GT40 was a high performance sports car and winner of the 24 hours of Le Mans four times in a row. The car was named the GT (for Grand Touring) with the 40 representing its overall height of 40 inches (1.02 m, measured at the windshield) as required by the rules. It was built to win long-distance sports car races against Ferrari.
The Mk III variant was a road-car only, of which 7 were built.
