This Documentary on Ford and Ferrari’s Le Mans Rivalry Looks Amazing

A must-watch.

If you love racing and documentaries, stop everything and put The 24 Hour War on your radar. 

The Ford/Ferrari rivalry at Le Mans is one of the most famous in racing history. It started in 1963 when Henry Ford II tried to buy Ferrari to save the ailing Ford Motor Company, which was being crushed by GM and the Corvette on the track and at the dealerships. After months of negotiation, Enzo Ferrari said no, refusing to allow Ford to interfere with what he loved the most: racing. Henry Ford II was furious and vowed to build a racecar that would dethrone Ferrari.

Not only does it look fantastic but it's directed by the one and only Adam Carolla. Buckle up.
