SUPERFORMANCE 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.

SUPERFORMANCE GT40 50TH ANNIVERSARY

The 1969 season proved more challenging as competitor cars had become lighter and more powerful. The Le Mans race was the focal event of the season The GT40’s hoping for a fourth or fifth place finish.Over the winter there was a shuffling of drivers, as Jackie Ickx, now recovered from a broken leg, took over “GT40P/1075” and Jackie Oliver was brought in to match his speed. To start the race Ickx made a visual statement concerning safety. As all others sprinted across to be the first away, Ickx walked across the road. The other drivers also started without seat belts on. Consequently, P1075 was last away, but Ickx was well buckled up.

LMC MKII

Designed to emulate the great iconic Shelby race cars from that nostalgic golden era of racing in the 1960s. The MKII FIA is the 1st licensed continuation of the original Shelby 289 racers that first appeared in 1962 winning 5 races. Loyal to the original lines and proper nostalgic characteristics of the original 1962 racer, this car is built for the heart-racing 289 motor and a more modern Tremec TKO transmission. The MKII FIA can be tracked or street driven.

Unlike most competitors, the MKII FIA is built on the successful Tojeiro-styled round tube chassis and features an authentic transverse leaf spring suspension to give owners an exceptionally authentic driving experience. Through our exclusive agreement with Carroll Shelby, the MKII FIA is a licensed Shelby product.

SHELBY DAYTONA COBRA

The Shelby Daytona Cobra is not just a replica of the legendary championship winning ‘Daytona Coupe’ of 1965. It is a sophisticated high performance GT, the car that would have been built had the designers had the benefits of modern computer aided design, and not been constrained by the short deadlines and tight budgets typical of racing in the 1960s.

Peter Brock designed the original Daytona Coupe body in 1964. In all only six cars were built, each hand made and therefore unique.

CORVETTE GRAND SPORT

In 1962, with the blessing of Chevrolet’s senior management, Zora Arkus-Duntov initiated a program to create a competitive road racer based on the newly designed Corvette C-2 Stingray™.

Duntov’s objective was to use the element of surprise to unleash high horsepower, superior handling race cars to the international road racing community. He based his racer on the footprint of a street capable/legal car.

The Corvette Grand Sport racer eventually qualified as a GT production car within the realms governing international rules and regulations.

HYPER RACER X1

The Hyper Racer X1 is a very light, very fast open wheel racing car. Weighing in at 390kg, the X1 is powered by a Suzuki Hayabusa GSX1340R engine. Factor in full body ground-effects and the X1 can challenge for lap records.

Looking for the biggest ‘Bang for the Buck’ in motor racing? The Hyper Racer – X1 has been designed as ‘Wash and Race’ vehicle and is ideal for the ‘one man race team’ who wants to race, year in – year out, on a modest budget. The X1 has been designed to be easy to maintain and cheap to repair.

Some racing drivers dream of a fantasy car – a laid back driver becomes the chassis of the vehicle, with four wheels attached to the drivers shoulders and feet and a Grand Prix engine bolted to the drivers back. Four wheels, one engine and a driver. A vehicle that assaults the atmosphere and compresses space and time.
