American car designer Carroll Shelby and driver Ken Miles battle corporate interference, the laws of physics and their own personal demons to build a revolutionary race car for Ford and challenge Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966.
Eric Broadley, one of the early designers of the GT40, does not make an appearance in the movie, but the box for a plastic model of Broadley's Lola T70 race car can be seen on a shelf in Peter Miles' bedroom.
Look out there. Out there is the perfect lap. You see it?
Peter Miles: I think so.
Ken Miles: Most people can't.
Lee Iacocca, Marketing Manager at Ford, knew Shelby before the GT40 program. He agreed to provide Shelby engines for the the Cobras in 1962. Cobras are clearly already in production and being sold at Shelby's Venice facility when they "meet" in the film.
