4256 hours of work, 70 summary videos, that’s it, this French videographer has just completed his huge project. Build a Ford GT40 from scratch.
It took 4 years for this French mechanic to achieve his dream. In 2017, the youtuber Benjamin Workshop has begun a Dantesque project. Its objective, to build from scratch a replica of the Ford GT40.
Mythical car of the 60s, it allowed the American manufacturer to win 24 hours of Le Mans, among others.
Well that’s this race car we’re talking about, so might as well tell you that the videographer tackled a legend. But he succeeded, with a lot of work and patience, he finally managed to realize his project.
To conclude this page of his life, he therefore decided to share a video summarizing these 4 years to his 207,000 subscribers, good viewing.
Whether it’s the chassis, the frame, the shock absorbers, in short, everything was assembled by hand. That’s why all this work took so much time and investment, but we have to admit that the result is completely crazy.
And as much to tell you that we are not on a simple replica of low quality. No, every detail has been thought of and the car drives perfectly. It is also almost impossible to see the difference with one of the 126 original copies.
The mechanic also allows himself a short lap on the circuit to end this completely crazy adventure. The feelings are there.
