2. Ford GT40 Mk IV
Many still consider the GT40 Mk I to be the most beautiful race car of all time, but a good chunk of it was British. The Mk IV, however, was an American chassis with an American engine and American drivers, and it kicked butt all over Europe, defeating the rest of the best carmakers in the world in their own backyard. We haven’t done it since with such a thoroughly American package, and until we do, the GT40 Mk IV’s place remains secure.
