Car Spotlight: Ford GT40 Superformance Replica
|There are normal cars. There are interesting cars. There are performance cars, and then, there are Legendary cars. The Ford GT is a legend among legendary cars. To keep things a bit more brief, check out this video from the youtube channel /DRIVE. The Grand Tour on Amazon Prime, has also done a story on this.|
Because of it's legendary status, original Ford GT's are going for prices in the mid-to-high $3mil range, which is unattainable to most of us. That's where companies like Superformance come in. You can get a replica that, for all intents and purposes, is a close enough replica to get it into the actual GT40 registry. According to their website, two-thirds of the parts on the Superformance replica are interchangeable with the original car.
|You can buy the car as a fully-assembled car, or as a kit. The interiors are as close to the original as possible. These cars are also certified by Shelby.|
|If I remember correctly, this car uses the big-block Ford 426 (correct me if I'm wrong), and makes something north of 500hp.|
