Codes to download the in-game version of one of the four GTs that will run the 24 Hours of Le Mans starting on June 18th will be sent to players of Forza Motorsport 6 starting today.

“Ford’s 1966 Le Mans victory is the stuff of motorsport legend, and now we’re back to take on the world’s toughest endurance race with our most technologically advanced car ever,” said Henry Ford III, global marketing manager, Ford Performance. “We’ve worked closely with Forza and Xbox so that millions of Forza Motorsport 6 gamers can experience the excitement of our Le Mans return side-by-side with Ford.”
The #66, #67, #68, #69 Ford GTs will take the grandest stage in all of endurance racing in the GTE Pro class when the 84th Le Mans 24 Hours kicks off at 3 pm CET/10 am EDT on June 18th.
