Ford is celebrating the Ford GT's return to the race circuit with a new video documentary series that spans the model's pedigree through to a look into its future. The first installment, "The Decision," tells the story of the rivalry between Henry Ford II and Enzo Ferrari following Ferrari's rebuff of Ford's offer to buy the brand. That battle sparked the development of the original GT that would go on to take all three top positions in the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans. Now, as the company celebrates its 100th anniversary, they've decided to also mark the 50th anniversary of their sweep with more looks at their upcoming 24 Hours of Le Mans race horses and their 600HP, road-going kin. 

Check out all of the Ford GT variants in our gallery and don't miss the first installment of the video series below.
