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.

A few shots from @silverstonecircuit this weekend with @clubmanscsp shot by @aleksander.ac
Car showed great promise all weekend except for an issue with the coils in qualifying meaning we started from the pits. P32 to p13 in race 1. P9 to P7 in race 2 and A DNF in race 3 having been running in 4th for a while. (Fire extinguisher went off without warning … time to revert back to pull chord operation)
Few jobs to do and new bodywork to fit then we will be set for Brands Hatch in May

The Spartan is the perfect blend between old school minimalistic design and modern technology. The 60s inspired aesthetics are complimented by cutting edge Tractive active dampers, Quaife sequential gearbox with flat-shifter and top flight motorsport hardware and software.
A 5 star review from Evo suggests the blend is just right, contact us today to arrange a viewing/ test drive and see for yourself

The heart and soul of the Spartan being admired by prototype 2. Fast and powerful without any compromise on safety. The supercharged Honda K24 pumps out over 400bhp propelling the CAMS safety approved chassis to 100km/h in the low 2 seconds.
Power figures to be confirmed after our rolling road session in the coming weeks.

After a rather turbulent 12 months with lockdowns in Australia and the ensuing disruptions, we are delighted to say the Spartan is now built and getting prepped for its first start. Some photos of the process will be posted over the next few days and weeks and we are beyond excited to share videos and photos of the complete car. Anticipated arrival (assuming no shipping delays) is June.

Here is a little teaser of the engine in situ. More to follow soon
