McLaren’s GT for the win

The 24 Hours of Le Mans is an automotive endurance race that tests the limits of cars and their teams. Highlighted in the film Ford v Ferrari, the race challenges teams to beat the competition by going the farthest within 24 hours instead of getting to a finish line first. Speed and reliability were crucial factors that led this notable design to victory, though Ford forcing Ken Miles to slow down helped. This model by KMP MOCs pays homage to the 1966 winner, by technicality, the Ford GT40 Mk2 driven by Bruce McLaren. The white circle and hood stripe nicely contrasts with the black body of the rest of the car. Gotta love those rounded 1×1 plates for their utility in design. The builder also makes use of new Speed Champions pieces and techniques to achieve a smooth, 8-stud wide design for this iconic car.
