This Replica Is The Best Way To Celebrate Ford’s Victory Over Ferrari

Shelby

It’s almost as good as the real thing.

It’s hard to believe, but 50 years have passed since Ford partnered up with Shelby American to beat Ferrari at its own game by securing the iconic 1-2-3 finish at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with three GT40 MkII race cars. Ford may be celebrating the iconic victory with its new GT, but Superformance has a different idea on how to celebrate the incredible race car. Superformance is one of the few brands that has a license to build replicas of the original GT40 and does an incredible job of doing so.

Superformance is celebrating the anniversary by building a series of special edition GT40 MkII replicas. Only 20 examples will be built and all of the vehicles will be an exact replica of the Le Mans-winning race car. The amount of attention that goes into the cars is incredible as the replicas will have a right-hand-drive layout and that great shifter between the driver’s seat and door. The replicas will also have special features, badging and logos. All replicas will be sold as rolling chassis, which will allow buyers to find their own engine. The recommended motor is a bespoke 7.0-liter V8 by Shelby that features its own badging.

Customers can choose from three different colors, each representing one of the iconic drivers. The Bruce McLaren edition has black with silver stripes, the Ken Miles edition features a blue exterior with white stripes, while the Dan Gurney edition is finished in red with white stripes. Superformance’s GT40 replicas are built to an incredible standard so that over 90 percent of the replica’s parts are interchangeable with the original model. The replicas, however, get modern amenities such as an adjustable pedal box, air conditioning and Bilstein shocks along with H&R springs. Yeah, we want one too.
