Superformance GT40

A quality re-creation of the original that beat Ferrari and finished in the top three positions in the grueling Le Mans 24 Hours in 1966. In developing the exhilarating GT40 continuation, engineers went to great lengths to ensure authenticity. So authentic, that we can legally use the name “GT40”. The GT40 also carries the GT40/P chassis number and is eligible for the official GT40 registry.

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 of 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.

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.

The Superformance GT40 MKI is built to the original designs and specifications. The GT40 MKI includes an original style all-steel tub, (monocoque) chassis, steel
pressed roof, fiberglass front and rear clips, air-conditioning and original style BRM wheels. The GT40 is a continuation series of the original, built under license
from Safir Spares LLC.
