To win the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the year 1966, automotive designer Carroll Shelby and race car driver Ken Miles lead the team of American engineers and designers from Ford to build a race car that can beat the Ferrari.
The movie was originally titled as 'Go To Hell' and actors Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt were considered for the lead roles.
In order to recreate the Le Mans circuit as it existed in the 1960s, the race track had to be shot in five different locations and visual effects were critical in fixing the variety of continuity errors.
Christian Bale had lost 70 pounds before the filming of the movie began and to prepare for his role he took up race driving lessons at the Bondurant High-Performance Driving School.
