Saw this last night in MAX and didn't understand why a friend we took was laughing...as a native born Itailan she understood the joke in the translator scene BEFORE the actor relayed what Enzo said!
Some of the 289s used were purchased by Peter Miles (Ken's son) and Aaron Shelby (Carroll's grandson) as well as Rich MacDonald, Dave's son. Peter was actually a teen in the period portrayed in the film however I'm sure the writers felt a "younger" boy would resonate better with the audience. Just one of many liberties taken however if you had said three years ago a "Ken Miles" movie would be made by a major studio and widely distributed you would have been laughed at!Enjoyed the movie, tried to not notice the errors...like the guy hammering the spinner the wrong way just before pulling out of the pits. 18 inch wheels on the Daytona coups. Spoke to Tony Hunt (stunt driver as "Ken Miles") on friday night. He had some interesting observations about the various GT40 replicas. Sorry, but I won't share them on this forum. BTW, he ended up buying the white Superformance (one of 3) slabside 289s that he drove in the movie.
