After securing half-a-dozen consultive race wins at the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans, Ferrari was famously defeated by Ford and its mighty GT40 — a Shelby-developed race car that would go on to take the top rung of the podium in ’67, ’68, and ’69. The 1969 running of Le Mans would also mark the last time that an American car would win the prestigious endurance event. To celebrate this illustrious point in motorsport history, the Amalgam Collection has painstakingly produced a limited run of ultra-finely-detailed 1:8 scale replicas of Jacky Ickx and Jackie Oliver’s Gulf-liveried MK. I race car.

Developed over the course of more than 4,000 hours with help from both the Ford Archive and Heritage department, and Gulf Oil International, each model measures 20” in length. Individually hand-built by a team of expert craftsmen and artisans, Amalgam’s Le Mans-winning GT40 is comprised of literally thousands of meticulously engineered components that are pieced together over a more than 400-hour process. Currently available for preorder, the Amalgam Collection’s 1969 Le Mans-winning Ford GT40 is limited to just 199 units worldwide and has been priced at $12,970. The first 50 units ordered will also come with a 12” x 18” Giclée art print of this exact GT40 taken at the 1969 running of the 24-hour event.

Purchase: $12,970
