The GT40 is perhaps the most iconic race car of the 60s. When the Ford Motor Company was left at the altar trying to buy Ferrari, their response was "If we can't buy 'them, we'll beat 'them". And so, the GT40 was born, with only one goal in mind, beat Ferrari at their own game of long-distance sports car racing. Carroll Shelby took over the Ford racing program in 1965 and in its running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans the following year, the GT40 Mk II finished first, second and third, beating the previously dominant Ferrari sports cars
GT40 RCR Replicas were the official supplier of race cars for the Ford Vs Ferrari Movie and supplied some 28 vehicle to the movie set. That alone speaks volumes for the amazing quality of these cars.
Powered by an all-aluminium mid-engine small block ford with Edelbrock heads and 4 downdraft webers coupled to 5 DS-25 Series transaxle (Manufactured by RBT), built from hand-laid fibreglass combined with an all-aluminium monocoque chassis, consisting of sheet and billet parts, completely TIG-welded.
6-piston AP Racing brakes in the front grab 11.75" NASCAR-style steel rotors. In the rear, the 4-piston version is used. These are great racing brakes that are equally at home on the street
This replica is built for business and is one of the world’s best-built replica brands Race car replica’s, built-in Michigan USA.
The vehicle is in amazing condition being a ground-up build and as close as it gets to the real deal, handcrafted Replicas of such high calibre are an investment for the future and a rare to find in today’s market. At only 1066 KG, the GT40 is nothing but a pure rocket ship without wings and defines the true meaning of a Marque sports car.
As most racing enthusiasts know the GT40 history, scoring four dominating wins at Le Mans in the 24-hour race from 1966-1969. The original race cars are still around, and unsurprisingly, there are several companies making a range of replicas. But the only one with bodies moulded from original cars, and an aluminium monocoque chassis and CNC-machined aluminium suspension is Race Car Replicas Mk 1 GT 40.
This is a truly magnificent vehicle and must be seen to be appreciate, driving this vehicle is a breathtaking experience that not many people will ever get to experience and a must have for any serious car collection and a great opportunity to own a GT40 Replica.
