P3 chassis number 0844 was made in 1966 and is the first of only three. Ferrari first won Le Mans in 1949. Between 1960 and 1965 Ferrari totally dominated the 24-hour race. Ford had its revenge with wins in 1966/7/8/9 with the 7.0-litre GT40s. After doing battle with Ford, Ferrari had waves of Porsche 917s coming at them. Although Ferrari went on to have countless ‘normal’ race wins, the red cars never won Le Mans again. One of this P3’s race wins was at Spa-Francorchamps in the 1966 Spa (...)

Americans may be restless, but they are not rootless. They always know where they are going. A century ago, population was moving from the farm to the city. Fifty years ago, the shift was to the suburbs. Today, the trend is back to big cities.
The Ford SYNUS concept is aimed at those taking part in this shift. It is compact enough to maneuver through congested streets yet bold enough to run with the big dogs at the same time.
The Ford Puma is not the prettiest coupÃ© you can buy, nor the most powerful. And the fact that it sits on Fiesta underpinnings does not sound glamorous. But get behind the wheel, find a twisty road, and few cars give you as much fun for your money, thanks to an agile chassis, precise steering and sharp suspension.
Since its dramatic 1964 introduction, Ford Mustang has been the icon of American performance with its bold style, brawny engine and rear-wheel-drive excitement, earning its place as the top-selling sports car for 19 years straight.

The year was 1949. After years of wartime sacrifice and sameness in durable goods, postwar America was ready for an automotive design revolution.

The Ford Streetka Concept, a design exercise by Ghia, was the star of the Turin Motor Show in 2000. It was clever yet simple, based on one of the most innovative sub-B vehicles and inspired by traditional sports cars from a bygone era such as the “Frog-Eye” Sprite and MG Midget. The result was a modern interpretation of the simplicity and fun of the classic two-seater roadster, truly in character with the original design flair of the Ford Ka.
