With championship wins at Brands Hatch, Spa, Watkins Glen and Sebring, in addition to Le Mans, P/1075 is the most successful of all the circa-132 GT40s built. The toolroom copies will perfectly replicate P/1075 both aesthetically and mechanically, and can be specified for general track day use or complete with HTP FIA-approval, making them eligible for historic racing. The prices for these cars in the UK start at £280,000 including VAT.
The tribute editions are more suited to road use; they have the wide body and wheels, and of course the Gulf livery of the P/1075, and are outwardly indistinguishable. They come with the choice of Roush-built Ford V8 engines from 5.0 litres (302ci) to 7.0 litres (427ci), and the option of Quaife RFQ or ZF RBT transaxle. In full road-going specification, including air-conditioning, UK prices start at £185,000.
Each one will come with a GT40 P/1000 Series chassis number, limited edition Gulf GT40 guitar and a plaque listing 25 of the employees that were key to P/1075’s unmatched success. They’re available to order from the official UK importer, Le Mans Coupes Ltd. Or, if P/1075 isn’t your thing, how about an HTP FIA-eligible toolroom copy of the pre-‘66 MkI GT40 race cars, which Superperformance has also just released, from £250,000?
