The 1969 Le Mans winner, replicated exactly as it reached the chequered flag
Introducing the most recent development in our established Race Weathered collection: the Ford GT40 at 1:8 scale. This fine model captures the car raced to victory by Jacky Ickx and Jackie Oliver in the 24 Hours of Le Mans on the 14th and 15th of June 1969. Models from the first batch of this special edition are now available to order for dispatch before the end of the year. Further models will likely be weathered to order.
Limited to just 40 pieces, the models will measure over 50cms/20 inches long with weathering details precisely applied by Toby, one of the team of artists in in our Bristol workshop.
Each model is officially sanctioned by the ACO and Ford, and is accompanied by an archive quality A1 portrait Giclée print of the car being ushered down the pit lane after its victory on track.
One of the most iconic racing cars of all time, the Ford GT40 was born out of motorsport’s most infamous grudge. After failing to secure possession of Enzo Ferrari’s much celebrated company, Henry Ford II returned to America empty-handed and declared his desire to crush Ferrari at Le Mans. The result was a car that was to defeat all before it.
