Seabrook, TX: The renown Keels & Wheels 25th Anniversary Concours d’Elegance 2021, the nation’s largest classic car and vintage wooden boat show, announces that the cars featured in the movie, Ford v. Ferrari, will be headlining at the event this year, May 1 – 2, 2021. This Academy Award winning 2019 sports drama film depicted the journey to the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans in France when a trio of Ford GT40’s successfully won, beating the previously dominant Ferrari team.
From the Michael & Kimberly Newman collection, the Ken Miles Hero Car GT40 Mark II replica is the true star of the film in its emulation of the original vehicle’s detail and high-quality build, including an amazing jet-black interior design. Driven by acclaimed actor Christian Bale, who played Miles in the movie, the GT40 is powered by a Roush 427 1R V-8 engine and employs a rear-exit “Bundles of Snakes” exhaust. The famous 1966 blue livery is emblazoned with a bold number “1” to complete the homage of the legendary GT40 that is now showcased at the Shelby Heritage Center in Las Vegas.
The Ferrari 330 P3 #27 coming to Keels & Wheels was a stunt car in Ford v. Ferrari that was used during the high-speed passes, changing numbers (19, 20, 21) for different shots. Billy Stabile, President of the Hollywood Car Company, worked with Race Car Replicas of Michigan to build these reproductions as bonified racing cars, and not solely movie props. This stunning replica shines in emblazoned crimson glory with 625 horsepower, weighing only 2300 pounds and being a handful that any Prancing Horse driver would appreciate. The gritty painting detail tells the story of the punishment these vehicles undergo in the grueling 24 Hours of Le Mans race.
