The Superformance GT40 is a quality re-creation of the original Ford GT that beat Ferrari and finished in the top three positions at the grueling 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966. This is one of Superformance’s most ambitious creations ever: a GT40 that is incredibly detailed, realistic, and faithful to the original design. While developing their exhilarating GT40, Superformance engineers went to great lengths to ensure authenticity. So authentic, that it could bear the name “GT40.” The GT40 also carries a GT40/P chassis number and is eligible for entry in the GT40 registry.

This is not simply a modern tube-frame chassis shrink wrapped in a fiberglass body; the Superformance GT40 MKII has a super rigid steel monocoque chassis that is covered in an all-steel body, just like the original Mark IIs. Nearly everything is like the original, right down to the “Gurney bubble” in the roof. Of course, some improvements were made in the interest of durability, weight savings, and safety; however, 90% of the parts are interchangeable with the original GT40 Mk II. Most notable differences from the source car include the addition of air conditioning and more modern Wilwood brakes, along with the fact is left-hand drive instead of steering from the right. Power is provided by a naturally aspirated aluminum Shelby 427 Windsor Stage-Two engine developing an estimated 550 horsepower and is paired to an RBT five-speed manual transaxle with center-mounted shifter.

In a car that weighs only 2,400 pounds, the acceleration and performance are breathtaking. This is the perfect track day beast that will blow the doors off most modern supercars. If you want to turn heads, this spectacular GT40 MKII will do it better than most anything else.
