Stunning Ford GT40 Replica Packs A Ford GT Engine But With More Power

Replica

Superformance calls its creation the Future Forty.

Superformance is renowned for making authentic Ford GT40 replicas featuring exact recreations of the car’s original monocoque. Now, the company has teamed up with exhaust specialists MagnaFlow to create a unique take on the original Ford GT40. Due to be shown at the upcoming SEMA show in Las Vegas later this month, the replica GT40 has been fitted with the current GT's 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine to create an interesting fusion of the old and new.

Called the Future Forty, the car also pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of Ford's famous win at the 1968 24 Hours of Le Mans when Pedro Rodriguez and Lucien Bianchi drove the GT40 to victory with a five-lap lead over the Porsche 907 that finished in second. Incidentally, Ford also recently paid tribute to the historic win with the GT Heritage Edition painted in the famous American Gulf Oil-sponsored blue and orange racing livery. The replica car, on the other hand, has the same livery as the current Ford GT Le Mans racer.

The Future Forty also features a bespoke exhaust system from MagnaFlow and a set of Honeywell Garrett turbochargers, so it could have even more power than the standard GT, which produces 647 horsepower. No technical specifications or production details have been revealed yet, so we’ll have to wait until the Future Forty is unveiled at SEMA on October 30 to find out all the juicy details.

The replica that will be displayed at SEMA won’t just be a show car – it belongs to the owner of Superformance, Doug Campbell. He originally had the car built for himself but liked it so much that he decided to sell them to customers.
