    Ford vs Ferrari

    This looks interesting. Directed by the fella who made Logan and a couple of A listers in the cast too - Christian Bale, Matt Damon.

    The ´war´ was winning at Le Mans and that they did in capital letters.

    One coúld make a case though for it all starting with Ford wanting to have a proper sports car range. It subsequently derailed because of Ferrari and after squashing all in Le Mans they never pursued the original purpose. Basically they never fought that war. The ´Pantera by Ford´was a .... well, an interesting marketing experiment resulting in a reliable exotic.
    Quite cool that is lived for 21, 22 years till well into the níneties!
    When the going gets tough, the DAF gets going.

    Let's hope the cars / graphics are more accurate representations than the movie poster.
    Note the missing rad duct splitter for starters.

    But seriously looking forward to it all the same.

    Indeed. Revenge is a dish best served on the opposition's home turf. Daytona 24 Hours 1967. Ferrari 1-2-3.

    Ford wanted to buy Ferrari, they couldn’t. They beat them in a race but they still couldn’t buy Ferrari, hence my comment.
