A collection of stories about the iconic GT40, providing insights to its design and racing achievements, and some well-kept secrets about its development and financial aspects.

This is not a traditional history of the GT40, but a book of stand-alone stories that you can dip into, and enjoy the many photographs that accompany the fascinating text.

Chapters include an explanation of the mysteries of Appendix J and its impact on the design of the Mirage and MkIV GT40; a detailed scrutineering report on GT40P/1075 at Le Mans; some untold truths behind the 2005 name controversy; and the unrecorded engine swap which enabled a GT40 to race – and finish – at the Le Mans 24 hours.

The book contains information which at last shows that Ford did really install the Indy 4-cam engine in a development of the GT40. It explains in detail how GT40-builder JWAE was structured, and what its accounts looked like: the fascinating facts concerning the financial aspects of the GT40-building business are revealed.

These two highly knowledgeable and experienced authors have collaborated to bring you this great collection of GT40 stories, some of which had previously been published in magazines many years ago, but have now been reworked, and some of which are totally new.

A must-have for any GT40 enthusiast to keep at their bedside or on the coffee table to dip in and out of as they please.

  • Generously illustrated with both historical and modern photographs
  • Design, development, racing and financial secrets are revealed
  • A major addition to GT40 lore
