9. 1964 Ford GT40
Originally built to challenge Ferrari at Le Mans (the Italians won the competition every year from 1960-1965), just 105 of these were produced between 1964-1969. It completed its mission with Le Mans wins in 1968 and 1969. The model name comes from GT – grand touring and 40 – 40 inches measured at the windshield. The original sported a Ford V-8, 4.7 L capacity engine that was later enlarged to 4.9 L. The first model was modified by John Shelby and turned into a winner at the 1965 Daytona.
