Matt Damon and Christian Bale are fulfilling our need for speed.
The pair stars in 20th Century Fox’s new film, which is based on the true events of the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans race between the Ford Motor Company and Enzo Ferarri.
The racing feud dates back before but came to a head at the aforementioned event.
Damon and Bale play Carroll Shelby and Kevin Miles who designed and drove the car for Ford in the 1966 race.
Their attempt to create the greatest race car the world has ever seen was fraught with corporate interference, the laws of physics, and their own personal demons.
“We’re lighter, we’re faster, and if that don’t work, we’re nastier,” Shelby says of the creation in the film’s official trailer.
Ford v Ferrari races into cinemas on November 15th.
