MKII GT40s are all the rage since the academy award winning
blockbuster "Ford v Ferrari" hit the big screen late last year. The
story of Carroll Shelby, Ken Miles and the GT40s that beat Ferrari
at Le Mans put these cars into the limelight worldwide. With people
itching to get their own 40-inch-tall "racecar," Superformance
built GT40P2255 as a tribute to one of the original cars that took
the top three positions overall in 1966.
Authenticity was the Superformance engineers' goal when recreating
P2255. It carries the GT40/P chassis number and is built to the
exact standards of the car back in 1966. It is so authentic that
over two thirds of the rolling chassis parts are interchangeable
with GT40's built in the 1960s.
The deep Sunset Red paint with Jet Black twin stripes is a gorgeous
color that compliments the sleek body lines. Other exterior
features include twin Gurney Bubbles, 17" Aluminum Pin Drive BRM
style wheels and period correct fog lights. Plus Factory Air
Conditioning to cool you down.
While the exterior is truly a showstopper, the heart of the beast
Equipped with a T&L 427ci Aluminum Windsor block accompanied by
4 two-barrel Weber Carburetors balanced and assembled by Probe
Industries with 5 stage drysump, this engine pumps out 600
horsepower. With so much power, a stout RBT 5 Speed Transaxle is
necessary to deliver the power to the pavement and push this car,
like Ken Miles did, to incredible limits.
P2255 is ready for action. Whether it be a concours, a track day or
a Sunday drive, this GT40 will excel in putting a smile on your
GT40P2255 is titled under CA SB100 Smog Exemption and would cost
well over $220,000 to recreate.
GT40P2255 has 1601 miles on the chassis and is currently available
