Ford was the first American car maker to win the world’s oldest car race, held in France. For years, Ferrari had dominated the contest.
Based on A.J. Baime’s book, the Fox project recounts how a young Henry Ford II — determined to infuse new life into his family’s company — decided to get into the European racing scene.
With the help of racer Carroll Shelby and Lee Iacocca, Ford built and designed a car that could take on Ferrari cars, known for their speed and style. They ultimately won the Le Mans, the world’s oldest car race that takes place each year in France.
Insiders say the initial idea is for Mann to develop the script.
