Hollywood Takes on an Iconic Racing Story in ‘Ford v Ferrari’

In the new movie, 'Ford vs. Ferrari,'  Hollywood has depicted one of the most iconic rivalries in the automobiles industry history and the world of car racing. The trailer for ‘Ford v Ferrari’ is already out and both movie lovers and car lovers are going crazy over the film. And if you’re both, this will be a treat for your eyes. 

Henry Ford II wanted to see Ford competing on the motorsports arena and acquired the then most successful racing car company, Ferrari. 

Enzo Ferrari had agreed until he realized that he would lose his hold on the racing aspect of the business as well and backed out last minute. Enraged by this, Henry Ford II built a race car that could bring down Ferrari from its pedestal on its home turf, at Le Mans. 

Designer Carroll Shelby and race car driver Ken Miles were teamed up by Ford to build the greatest racing car the world has ever seen. 

Then follows the struggle of the two to fight against all odds and build the Ford GT40, which beat Ferrari. From that time until today, Ford has had its grip on the motorsports arena and this film will showcase what brought about this revolution. 

The film, directed by James Mangold, will be released on November 15th, 2019. From what the trailer reveals, the wait will be worth it for sure.
