    Did it still have a v12 or was it a Chevy under the bonnet?

    Col Ronnie Hoare together with the Ferrari 250 GTO #4399 in September 1963. The car was rebodied to '64 spec later on.

    Interesting post 10857 as the picture shows 4399GT at Monza for the Coppa Inter Europa driven by Mike Parkes to second place not wearing the usual Maranello Concessionnaires Cambridge blue front.

    Hi David

    Just leafing through some of the early images and it struck me just how much of a roller-coaster that back section of the Glen was.

    By any chance, do you have an images of Niki Lauda testing the long wheelbase variant of the 312T2-77 at either Fiorano or Zandvoort, or indeed a nice sharp one of him in the six-wheeled variant "312T6" at either Fiorano or Nardo?

    Kind regards.

    Jon

    In all fairness, do we really expect them to use the real cars or even exact replicas? Even though Hollywood film budgets can be enormous, they are not that enormous.

    They could at least make sure that a P4 Replica doesn't look like an elephant had sat on its roof…………
    What a shame in 2019.
    I remember the great days when Steve McQueen filmed Le Mans! With real cars.

    I certainly don't expect them to use real cars, but...I do expect them to make the replicas much more accurate. Too many details are wrong, at least the details could have been easily made correctly. It's easy enough to do, and they do have the money/budgets for that, as well as access to people who know what they are looking at. So there is just no excuse.

    Among car guys like us, sure. But the general public are simply going to say: "Hey, let's go see that Matt Damon movie" and not sweat the details..

    They could certainly try to use real cars for some of the stationary shots. This film will be great fodder for serious gearheads to gather and tally the many inaccuracies. I must say that the fake Fords are better than the fake Ferrari.

    As you know, 1966 330 P3s 0844 and 0848 are now P3/412Ps so unfortunately no 330 P3s exist for stationary shots of those. And 330 P3 0846 was converted to a 330 P3/P4 and no longer exists.

    Marcel,
    when McQeen filmed his epic movie about Le Mans, the cars he used had not that value they have today. And they even used some Ferraris which under their skin were... Lolas!

    Right. And that doesn't even touch on the issue of insurance costs of having those real cars that actually were available on the set even for stationary shots. Huge . . .

    "RUSH" was done very, very well. Used many real cars, and paid great attention to numerous details, etc, etc. Granted that times have changed, and we all know that many cars from long ago i.e. when "Le Mans" was made did not have values of today, and of course today many of the F-1's don't quite have the same values as some of the Ferrari sports racers, and LM winning GT40's, but they do still have very substantial high values. Many real cars were used in "RUSH." Production Co. wanted and offered to fly my friends ex-James Hunt McLaren M23 overseas for some filming, and they were prepared to foot the bill for all. He declined, but now wishes he had let them use it. Money and knowledge is out there.
