Uhhh, Carroll Shelby and a few Cali cowboys beat the GTO straight up, without million$ of Ford dollars, with the Daytona Coupe. Yes Henry II went back for more but he was after LeMans not the GT championship. And he did that mostly because Enzo agreed to sell and then reneged.

The story I find most interesting is that after the Daytona Coupes accomplished their goal, nobody wanted them. They sat on a dock somewhere and almost got pushed into the ocean to get them out of the way. Now they belong to billionaires. Time is a funny thing.
