Built in the UK in 2000 with 1966 period number plate. Red with black leather interior, only 19,500 miles from new. The body is GT40 Mk1 with a modified front nostril providing a deeper vent for improved cooling while retaining the Mk1’s original double inlet. Producing circa375bhp, the 4.9-litre Ford V8 engine is equipped with quadruple Weber carburettors, Edelbrock Performer aluminium cylinder heads, MSD ignition, and a crossover exhaust system, five-speed dogleg gearbox. Heater, Smiths instruments, removable steering wheel, and five-point safety harnesses. Immobiliser, chromed suspension uprights, Wilwood brakes, Spax adjustable shock absorbers, and replica BRM wheels shod with Yokohama tyres: 215/60 front, 265/50 rear. A truly marvellous almost perfect copy of the legendary GT40. Sounds amazing and is a real thrill to drive.
Autosport and Autocar magazines tested an original, GTD-built example in 1989. The former had this to say: ‘An original GT40 is priceless, but an equally charismatic alternative is the GTD40. The pair are indistinguishable from five paces, let alone 50, so faithful is GTD’s replica even to the discerning eye. The GTD is no “kit car”, but a thoroughbred in every sense.’ Praise indeed.
