Forty-five international racing stars join Steve McQueen in this gritty, nerve-shattering recreation of the toughest car race in earth - Le Mans. Returning to France to compete a year after he's been injured, an American driver (McQueen) finds himself drawn to the widow of a racer who was killed in the same accident. Filmed on location in France, the film's spellbinding cinematography provides a dazzling look at the world's most extraordinary cars and the unique personalities of the people drawn in the race car circuit. Steve McQueen, himself a championship racer, did most of his own driving on the harrowing 8.5-mile Le Mans course - often at speeds exceeding 220 miles per hour.
