Information About the Ford GT 40

A classic racing thoroughbred that is a mix of British and American automotive design and engineering at its very best, the Ford GT 40 was launched by Ford Motor Company in the hopes of being able to compete with - and beat - Ferrari in long distance motorsport races.

And it did that in style and then some, notching up four consecutive wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans races between 1966 and 1969. The GT 40 is a product of both Ford’s UK and US bases, being designed and conceptualised at their Slough base in Berkshire and manufactured at their Wixom plant in Michigan.

What it adds up to is a distinct and vivid Grand Tourer racing car, quite unlike anything Ford has produced before or since, with a broad wheelbase of 95 inches, and a streamlined light weight of 1217 kg, making it more aerodynamic and tailored for the track.

For a car from such a golden age of motoring, the power from its humming V8 engine pumps out 485 bhp. It can reach top speeds of 130 mph whilst zipping from 0 - 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and 0 - 100 mph in 8.2 seconds.

You may buy a Ford Driving Experience in one of two ways. You may either buy a 10-month open gift certificate for one of our driving experience days or book straight onto an available day using our events calendar. The gift certificate also has the possibility of being turned into a gift package, making it the most unique present for any occasion.

If no dates are available on the voucher page, please e-mail or phone us and our customer service staff will provide you with the most up-to-date information. If you'd like to create a custom package, or if you'd want to turn one of our driving experiences into a group or corporate event, please visit our corporate days page and fill out our contact form.


Ford Driving Experiences: Important Booking Information

When you purchase an open gift certificate for a Ford package, the voucher's normal validity term is 10 months. Please double-check this, as certain Ford coupons and special offers may have a shorter or longer validity period.

If you schedule a driving experience on a certain day, please keep in mind that you are making a reservation request, and the date and time you choose are still subject to availability.

We typically confirm reservations within 48 hours, however we ask that you wait until you get your final confirmation email before making any plans related to your booking request. The confirmation we give you when you submit a booking request is not the same as the receipt we send you.

Another essential factor to consider when buying Ford driving adventures is that the driver fulfils all age, weight, height, and driving licence criteria. Because each driving experience has its own set of needs, please read the essential information carefully.

If an experience is exclusively for younger drivers, we will generally indicate it in the package name, although this is not always the case. If you arrange a driving experience and the driver does not satisfy the criteria on the day, it is doubtful that they will be allowed to drive the car; but, if space is available, they will be given a passenger trip.

Cool Facts About the Ford GT 40

The Ford GT 40 has gained a new fanbase in the last year, following the release of the 2019 film Le Mans ‘66, which stars Matt Damon and Christian Bale in a biopic that charts the genesis of Ford’s move into GT cars and subsequent victories at Le Mans, meaning that it’s now one of our most popular choices for our Movie Car experience packages.

But Le Mans wasn’t the only site of the GT 40’s numerous victories. It won the International Manufacturers Championship in 1966, the International Championship for Sports Cars two years running in 1966 and 1967, and the International Championship for Makes in 1968.
