DESCRIPTION

A quality re-creation of the original that beat Ferrari and finished in the top three positions during the grueling Le Mans 24 Hours in 1966. While developing the exhilarating GT40 continuation, engineers went to great lengths to ensure authenticity. So authentic, that we can legally use the name "GT40". The GT40 also carries the GT40/P chassis number and is eligible for the official GT40 registry.



The GT40 continuation is built to exacting standards - in fact over two thirds of the rolling chassis's parts are interchangeable with that of an original car, including the 'monocoque" style chassis.
