Well Driven Approved are incredibly excited to offer this absolutely stunning Superformance GT40 Mk1 continuation. Built by Le Mans Coupes of West Sussex, this GT40 is not a replica or kit car, it is a genuine continuation car that has been meticulously built to the same standards as the original Ford GT40 of the 1960s. This Mk1 example is numbered with the original GT40-P chassis number and is listed on the Shelby Car World registry and GT40 Registry.
This 2015 model is finished in Guardsman Blue with the iconic white “Viper” stripes just like the original 1964 prototype GT40 and it has covered just 2,000 miles since its build completion and is has been fitted with a Ford Racing 327 cubic inch engine that produces a sound and experience unlike any other car you can buy today. It really has to be heard to be appreciated.
