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.
Powered by an all-aluminium mid-engine small block ford with Edelbrock heads and 4 down draft 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.
