Description [hide]
The Mark II, built in England, was put through extensive testing which solved many of the stability issues (of the MkI). Carroll Shelby was brought onboard to oversee the racing program. He began by installing a 7-litre NASCAR engine (427ci) that was more powerful and more reliable. The result was a vehicle that was much more stable and quicker than the MkI.

No fewer than eight Mark IIs were meticulously prepared for the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans. Although the cars were entered by three different privateer teams on paper, the Ford themselves headed the operation and supplied most of the personnel in the pit boxes. Ford's assault was further backed by five regular GT40s. By contrast, the big nemesis, Ferrari fielded only three of their latest generation prototypes. The 24 hour race proved to be particularly grueling and only 15 of the 55 starters reached the finish. All of the Ferraris had retired with seven hours to go, as had nine of the Fords, but the surviving three held together long enough to score a historic 1-2-3 photo finish.

This 'mod' includes a 427ci producing 486hp (363KW) @ 6000rpm - 475ft/lb (644Nm) @ 5000rpm, Kar Kraft modified Ford T-44, 4-speed transaxle and some minor chassis 'tweaks'.

--Warning--This car is fast...., very fast! Double your usual braking distance and be easy on the throttle on exit....and more importantly....have fun!

Thanks to Nack for the 2 skins used and to mark_f for his GT40 sound files.

To install, download and un-pack to a temp location of your choice, and install the 'GameData' folder directly to your main *:\GTL folder. Will not overwrite any other GT40's installed. Will appear in showroom as Ford GT40 MkII and are linked to GTC-TC-76 class and the Pantera.

Cheers,
Bruce

A big thankyou to Nack for his 2 GT40 skins that I have based this mod on. They were so close to the original cars in the pics, I just had to use them. Thank you Nack.

Also to mark_f for his Ford GT40 sounds that are used. Thank you Mark.
