Ford v Ferrari

Audio problem: During the last scene with Ken, he is talking to Phil, as he jumps into the J-Car. He starts the car and the sound of the car is not that of a carbureted 7.0L (427) V8 (which is what it should be) but the sound from a 2005-2006 Ford GT. This is the car Ford sold for 2 years as a tribute to the GT40. The start up sound with the supercharged V8 (which is in the GT) is unmistakable. Especially to car people. When he's accelerating the engine/exhaust sound changes to the 7.0L (727) V8. (02:18:51)

Trivia: Christian Bale continued an impressive history of weight gain and loss for this part - he'd put on weight for his role in Vice, and had 7 months to drop it all to play Ken Miles. He's said he just didn't eat. He's previously lost weight for The Machinist, and then gained it all back in short order for Batman Begins.

Question: At various points in the film the car brakes are glowing red hot, would this happen in real life or is it for show?

Answer: Watch any NASCAR short track night race where heavy braking is required, the brake rotors glow at every turn.

Answer: I watched this movie with my father, who actually participated in Autocross races in the past. He says from first hand experience that this is indeed real. The breaks get so heated from use in the race during the rapid slowing and going that they glow hot. This is why there are racing grade breaks and it's unwise to try and race without them.

Agreed. My dad is a former race car mechanic and he said that this absolutely happens all the time.
