Superformance GT40 50th Anniversary Car for Sale - Le Mans Coupes

BRINGING YOU A LIMITED EDITION 1969 TRIBUTE GT40

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.

A serious accident on the first lap caused the field to be squeezed up. After the first lap it was P1075 in 15th place and P1076 in 12th place, As dawn broke 12 hours later “GT40P/1075” was in the lead with “GT40P/1076 third!” The sole surviving Porsche was catching the leading GT40 and eventually the two cars were side by side, swapping positions until the last lap, where the GT40 won by 1.5 seconds!

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of P1075’s unrivaled success, Gulf Oil, Safir GT40, and Superformance have partnered to bring you a limited edition 1969 Tribute GT40 featuring P1000 continuation prototype chassis numbers. These GT40’s include all aesthetic features of P1075’s 1969 Le Mans victory, a Limited Edition Gulf GT40 Guitar, and also a plaque naming twenty five of those employees who brought the Gulf racing team such great success that 1969 season.

The 50th Anniversary GT40 MKI will be offered in standard configuration with A/C, Left or Right hand drive, or as a special edition “Tool Room GT40P/1075” configuration that mechanically and visually replicates how these winning cars were raced and can be homologated for sanctioned historic racing.

Superformance GT40’s are built for the street and feature air conditioning standard just like the original GT40 street car P/1028

Beautiful 🙂

Like Hillbank Motors Corporation, Please list your prices.

Let me guess. If I have to ask how much, then that's just a sign that you probably can't afford it...😥 It looks fantastic, that lovely iconic paint scheme. Why would someone want to part with it...?

My favourite Superformance build - so much presence

Masters Historic at Brands Hatch this weekend. Ok Oliver take it to Brands Hatch this weekend and put a For Sale sign on it.. It'll be sold by Sunday evening...

In love ❤️ 😍

Love it

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...

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.
