When Ford took on Ferrari
What's a good way to tell if a feud is the real deal? When Hollywood makes a movie out of it starring Christian Bale and Matt Damon. In this case, the battle between Ford and Ferrari was an epic throwdown of not just personalities but technology. Henry Ford II was slighted by Enzo Ferrari on a business deal when Ferrari changed his mind about selling to Ford, literally at the last minute. The resulting feud saw Ford spare no expense in building a supercar that would race against Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and shame him on the track, all for spite and glory.
