A total of 105 Ford GT40s were made throughout the 60s, but just eight of them were GT40 Mk2. The GT40 Mk2 famously won first, second, and third place in 1966 at 24 Hours of Le Mans, a legendary endurance race that Ferrari had previously dominated. It was the first American car to win a European race since 1921. It went on to win at Le Mans for the next three years.
The GT40 Mk2 improved on the Mk1 model with a chassis made of thicker steel, a more advanced suspension, heavier driveshafts, and ventilated Kelsey-Hayes disc brakes. Its engine, a 427 cubic inch V8, was the same. It was also slightly wider and taller than the original.
One sold at auction in August of 2018 for $9.795 million.
Ford revived the supercar in 2005 and again in 2016, 50 years after the historic win at Le Mans. A few hundred of them are made every year and they sell for around half a million dollars. In 2019, Ford announced the track-only GT Mk II, an homage to the original. Only 45 were made and sold for $1.2 million apiece.
