Genuine Superformance chassis and body with GT40P chassis number
Built by Olthoff Racing with 289 FIA specification engine by Pathfinder
Road registered and in immaculate condition

There are few race cars that mean more to today’s race drivers than the iconic Ford GT40. Built with an unprecedented budget to beat Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the GT40 went on to exceed all expectations – winning in 1966, 1967, 1968, and 1969.

Then came Superformance, the most respected of all the GT40 constructors. All its cars are officially licensed to use the GT40 name; all have ‘continuation’ GT40 chassis numbers and and are also eligible for the GT40 register. They are so good that some have been granted FIA HTP papers are are regularly racing in historic events.

This particular example has been built to a very high standard, principally as a road car, but could be re-configured as an FIA race car if required. Using a Superformance body and chassis, the car was constructed by the renowned American race prep outfit Olthoff Racing. Founder Bob Olttoff was the South African driver who raced in the Le Mans 24 Hours, at Goodwood and Brands Hatch and this the racing heritage is maintained prepping for American and international customers.

While developing the GT40 continuation, Superformance went to great lengths to ensure absolute authenticity. So authentic that over two thirds of the rolling chassis's parts are interchangeable with that of an original car, including the 'monocoque" style chassis.

The engine is a Ford 1965 C5 Code 289 FIA race motor with original 1965 289 Ford cast iron heads; Wiseco pistons, Crower Competition con rods and forged steel crank. It has 4/48 IDA Webers and a period correct intake Weber manifold and it was built by Pathfinder Motorsports of Florida, another highly respected US race shop.
