AFX GT40 #1 Miles slot car

The Car That Beat Ferrari, The Ford GT40, arguably the most famous racing sports car of all time, comes to HO scale slot car racing. And AFX brings it to you as the next edition in the super popular Collector Series.

FEATURES

  • Remarkably detailed body – Super realistic, especially for this scale
  • Brand new Mega G+ chassis – Lowest, lightest, best-handling chassis anywhere
  • Up to 6 color graphics – No one even comes close
  • Officially Licensed by Ford – As close as possible to the real thing

Mega G+ Chassis

This new Mega G+ chassis doesn’t just go faster or handle better than the competition. And it doesn’t just have the ultra-low, narrow dimensions of the original Mega G to continue the reign of the most realistic HO cars on earth. It’s smoother, more consistent, and more intuitive than any car we’ve ever built.

Mega G+ Chassis Features

  • FN20 Advanced Power Unit: lighter, smoother, quieter, more consistent and uses 33% less energy than Mega-G
  • Weight: Up to 35% lighter than any other HO chassis, 5% lighter than Mega-G
  • Shape: Narrowest, lowest chassis ever made for more realistic bodies
  • Pick-Up Shoes: Stronger, follows rail better for consistent power
  • Center of gravity: Lowest of all competitors to corner with confidence
  • Guide Pin: AFX Exclusive Extra-long tapered guide pin keeps the car on track longer
  • Ground Effects Magnets: Level 30 Neodymium – Stays glued to the track
  • Chassis Material: Super durable Nylatron has just enough flex
  • Brushes: High carbon power unit brushes last longer than composite brushes
  • New Redundant Power Transfer System: Maintains consistent power supply to motor for improved durability and drivability

GT40 History

Commissioned by Henry Ford, the GT40 was designed specifically to beat Ferrari at Le Mans, in part as a pay-back after Ferrari turned down Ford’s offer to buy the famous Italian marque in 1963. Indeed, the GT40 did beat Ferrari at Le Mans in 1966, then again in 1967, ’68 and ’69, dominating endurance sports car racing over the entire period. Checkout the Shelby American Museum website. In this sacred sanctuary resides the original #1 and #2 GT40s as they were driven by Miles/Hulme and McLaren/Amon.

GT40 #1 Drivers: Ken Miles / Denis Hulme

After winning the Daytona 24 Hour earlier in the year, Miles had led much of the 1966 Le Mans race and was well ahead near the end when Ford decided they wanted their three cars to cross the line at the same time for a publicity photo. Miles was instructed to wait for the other two cars and duly crossed the finish line together. Only then did he learn that a technicality gave the win to McLaren. Miles, whose lifelong dream had been to win Le Mans, would never get another chance to achieve that goal. He was tragically killed later that same year while testing.

Collector Series Packaging
