A Rivalry For The Ages
The rivalry between American and Italian Super Cars is no new affair. After Enzo Ferrari himself pulled out of a deal that would have sold Ferrari to Ford Motor Company in the early 1960’s, Henry Ford vowed to build a car that would beat Ferrari on the world endurance racing circuit.
Ford chose Lola Motorcars International Ltd, a race car engineering company founded in 1958 by Eric Broadley to develop the car. The existing Lola Mk6 chassis powered by a Ford V8 made an impressive showing in the 1963 Le Mans and was considered the most advanced car of its time. After several years of intense development from teams at Ford Advanced Vehicles in the UK which included Carroll Shelby, Ford pulled out all the stops for the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The 1966 the Ford MKII GT 40 made history by taking first, second, and third over Ferrari in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The American designed MKII’s were fitted with the 427 cubic inch FE Motor and the Ford built T44 transaxle. The GT 40 went on to win Le Mans 4 times in a row from 1966-1969 and secured the only all American (American developed car, American engine, and American driver) win at Le Mans.
The 2005-2006 Ford GT is a tribute to this historic American race car. With a production run of only 4,038, the Ford GT is one of the most potent street cars ever developed.
In early 2008, Johnny Bohmer and the Performance Power Team turned their eye towards the up and coming sport of Mile Racing.
The Standing Mile is an event where vehicles begin from a dead stop and accelerate through the 1 Mile Mark, and the speed at the Mile Mark is recorded. Top speed is king.
At the time, the sport was dominated by twin turbo Lamborghini Gallardo’s and Toyota Supras reaching speeds in the 220mph range.
Johnny Bohmer knew his weapon of choice, the incredibly engineered late model Ford GT, had the potential to dominate. Performance Power Racing declared that they would design and pilot the first street car to break the 250 mph barrier in The Standing Mile, and it would be done in the Ford GT.
The milestones that have been achieve as the first street legal car to break the 250mph, 275mph and holder of the current Guinness World Record at 283mph have all lead to the next event. The BADD GT is being prepared to make its next run and the goal is 300+mph in the Standing Mile.
