An all-time classic sports car racing movie starring ultimate petrol head Steve McQueen.
Le Mans is a great film, made all the more memorable by superb footage of Ferrari 512s locked in battle with Porsche 917s.
Quite simply this is one of the best racing films ever made. With an incredible cast of drivers and the always excellent McQueen you couldn’t really go wrong.
The story follows McQueen’s character (Michael Delaney) as he returns to Le Mans following a horrific accident in the previous year’s race.
As well as proving to himself he still has what it takes to race, Delaney is out to beat archrival Erich Stahler (Siegfried Rauch) and secure the Le Mans trophy for Porsche.
McQueen performed all of his own driving on the genuine Le Mans course in France and recruited a further 45 international racing drivers for the film.
