To honor the 50th anniversary of Fords first-place victory at the 1968 24 Hours of Le Mans, Superformance, known for building 1960s-era continuation cars, built a one-off GT40 MkI that pays tribute to the winning Ford GT with livery and the EcoBoost V6 powerplant from the current Ford GT.
Dubbed the “Future GT Forty,” the Superformance GT40 MkI will be on display at the Magnaflow booth during the 2018 SEMA Show, held October 30 through November 2 in Las Vegas. The car is powered by a 3.5-liter Ford EcoBoost twin-turbocharged V6 engine with custom Magnaflow exhaust and custom pin drive wheels from HRE Wheels wrapped in Michelin tires.
Fuel supply was provided by Aeromotive and HPS supplied the hoses for the vehicle.
Other parts include a Centerforce clutch, Ridetech Shockwave air suspension, Dynamat sound insulation, a custom Stitchcraft interior, DEI heat insulation, Speed Hut Custom guages and a Quaife 5 speed transaxle.
Superformance and Hillbank Motorsports also painted the current Ford GT livery, added the racing decals and fitted it with modern lighting front and rear.
