1966 Ford GT40 #2 - Winner Le Mans in 1:12 scale


This is the 1966 Ford GT40 #2 - Winner Le Mans in 1:12 scale by CMR.

The 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans was a historic race, and the Ford GT40 #2, driven by Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon, emerged as the victorious entry. This race was a pivotal moment in motorsport history as it marked Ford's first overall win at Le Mans and a triumph in their fierce rivalry with Ferrari. The GT40's win was also unique for its dramatic conclusion. The McLaren/Amon car led a Ford 1-2-3 finish, with McLaren famously slowing down in the closing stages to ensure a photo finish with the second-placed Ford GT40. This photo finish remains one of the most iconic moments in Le Mans history, solidifying the 1966 race as an enduring symbol of American motorsport success and the Ford GT40's dominance in endurance racing.

This model is hand painted and polished to a beautiful finish and has a sealed body. Resin models are exceptionally accurate of scale, shape and detail. Each model is created using a variety of production processes, to achieve this precision. They are produced using a composite material referred to in the industry as “resin”. Photo etched parts, die-cutting, tampo printing and waterslide decals are often used for a most authentic replication.
