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.

The emotion of driving a GT40 on an iconic racetrack is hard to beat. But the thrill on the road is equally evocative. Driving this 1960s icon home after @motorsportdays in the rain at night was in stark contrast to the running on Friday on a dry Silverstone track yet still a thrill in its own right. The simplicity of the cockpit only giving you the information you need to know while looking out over the sculpted front arches makes you feel like you’re about to take on Le Mans. The eager rumble of the V8 over your shoulder motivates you to play with the throttle as intended! A great car and a real event each time it is driven. Contact us today to schedule a test and order your own #GT40 ... See MoreSee Less

There is simple no words that can describe driving iconic cars on the public roads

Oliver, I remember you taking me around Donington in the ‘Braun’ coloured GT40, & Nigel taking Gerry Bagshaw, I thought that Cobras were fun, but the GT40 is another level! 😎😎😎

Love to see an onboard video if there's any. 😊

I can't afford one but I'd like to have a go 😂
