CONTINUATION GT40 CAR FOR SALE MK1 + MK2 - Le Mans Coupes
Le Mans Coupes. GT40

A QUALITY RE-CREATION OF THE ORIGINAL FORD GT40 THAT BEAT FERRARI

Famously sweeping the top three positions in the grueling 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966 and again in 1967 with the GT40 MKIV. In 1968 and 1969, GT40 MKI number 1075 became the only race car to win Le Mans for two consecutive years.

In developing our exhilarating GT40 continuation, our engineers went to great lengths to ensure authenticity. It is NOT a kit car or replica, it is a genuine continuation GT40. The Superformance GT40 MKI, MKII and GT40 R competition are numbered with the original GT40-P chassis numbers and are listed in the Shelby Car World Registry and official GT40 registry.

The GT40 continuation is built to exacting standards – in fact over two thirds of the parts in the rolling chassis are interchangeable with that of the original, including the ‘monocoque’ style chassis. The Superformance GT40 also boasts a pressed steel roof and beautifully finished body. Current models offered are the MKI and MKII which are available in right and left hand drive, as well as the GT40/R Competition. Add your choice of power (big or small block ) with a ZF/RBT transaxle, and prepare yourself for extreme satisfaction and the ultimate in styling.

Throwback to our first client GT40. The livery is very appropriate as this car was delivered to the late, great Alan Mann who ran GT40s and other iconic cars in period.
What livery do you think is most iconic on a GT40?

English Fords !!

Simply stunning

Probably the Gulf one but the same could be said for the 917...so maybe it should be shelby stripes 🤷🏼‍♂️

A GT40 is such an iconic car it would look great with any livery but if I could afford one it would have to be in the gulf livery

I liked the "Holman and Moody" cars for 1966.. Number 1, Number 5 and Number 6...

Gulf

So great to see the growth and success of Hyper Racer and this exciting news. Looking forward to bringing this level of expansion to the UK market📣 ANNOUNCEMENT 📣

Hyper Racer appoints Summons Racing for Customer Racing expansion.

HYPER RACER is excited to announce the appointment of the Victorian based organisation, SUMMONS RACING, to provide Hyper Racer customer support for sales, leasing plans, “Arrive & Drive” packages, storage, maintenance, transport and track requirements.

The appointment of Summons Racing provides additional factory space adjacent to Hyper Racer HQ, tripling the available floor space to support the ever growing demand.

Summons Racing founder, Rob Summons, is extremely pleased with the association with Hyper Racer. “We absolutely love Hyper Racer, the low cost ethos of going racing as well as the product itself, an extremely fast racing car”, he said. When prompted about how the association came about, he added, “The Hyper Racer team made it clear that they were fast running out of space and in desperate need of room to scale and grow to fill the number of orders coming in.”

With Summons Racing (Vic) and Carbon Racing (NSW) providing race support, Hyper Racer can now focus on the manufacturing of new cars to add to the grid throughout the 2024 season and beyond.

Most definitely.

I would love one

You are absolutely right. Beautiful machine.

Very nice, but not as sweet as the AC cars version., the a98 coupe

Jackasses will still say it's "not real" while driving their minivans though.
