For Sale: 1966 Superformance GT40 in Napa Valley, California

Vehicle Description

A Shelby licensed build of the original that beat Ferrari and finished in the top three positions during the grueling Le Mans 24 Hours in 1966. While developing this GT40, Superformance 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 is built to exacting standards. Over two thirds of the rolling chassis's parts are interchangeable with that of an original car, including the 'monocoque" style chassis.
