Unless you live under a rock, you likely know that this year is the 50th anniversary of the Ford GT40's triumphant victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. There's been more than a few epic celebrations for the GT40: 28 GT40s hit the track at the Goodwood Member's Meeting earlier this year and of course, there's Ford's new GT street and race cars. The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is jumping in on the fun too with a pretty spectacular party.
Pebble Beach announced Wednesday that every single GT40 to win a major international race is expected to be at its August Concours event, including all the Le Mans-winning cars. The concours organizers also invited many of the GT40's famous drivers including Dan Gurney, Chris Amon, Jacky Ickx, Brian Redman, David Hobbs, and Jackie Stewart.
The Pebble Beach Concours is always a must-attend event for car geeks, but this collection of GT40s is just ridiculous. Seeing one real GT40 is an event in and of itself–all of the Le Mans-winners a host of others is heaven on earth.
