Superformance GT40 Coupe (GT40P/2049)
Finished in Gulf Racing Livery, The GT40 is arguably the most iconic car in racing history.
The Superformance GT40 has a lot more going for it than a mere “replica”. Carroll Shelby, the man who led Ford to those mighty endurance victories, gave Superformance his thumbs-up to construct officially designated GT40/ P numbered chassis. So, it’s not a genuine Ford, but it is a genuine GT40. It’s licensed by Shelby and Safir GT40 as the only true GT40 continuation car and is eligible for GT40 registries.
Because it’s almost impossible to tell the difference between an original and this 2020 car, Hollywood film Le Mans ’66 uses Superformance GT40s for race scenes.
The GT40 continuation is built to exacting standards - in fact over two thirds of the rolling chassis's parts are interchangeable with that of an original car, including the 'monocoque" style chassis.
The Superformance GT40 also boasts a pressed steel roof and beautifully finished body, Superformance GT40's are built for the street and feature air conditioning standard just like the original GT40 street car P/ 1028
Built in South Africa and completed by Le Mans Coupes Ltd in the UK to a very high spec. Having covered only 375 miles delivery mileage for these bespoke, hand-built cars – it wants for nothing and is ready to be driven and enjoyed on road or track.
Fitted with a 6 litre, 363ci "Prestige Motorsport" blueprinted engine and with over 400bhp, this car packs a real punch under acceleration yet is useable in traffic and on a gentle cruise. The chassis is designed and built from the original drawings and as such is exceedingly well developed, strong and durable. This is the ultimate opportunity to jump the build queue and own a GT40 in time for the Summer driving season and attend much missed events in style
