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 GT40P2178 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
P2178. 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 Titanium Silver paint with Jet Black twin stripes is a gorgeous
color that compliments the sleek body lines. Other exterior
features includes twin Gurney Bubbles, 17" Aluminum Pin Drive
Halibrand style wheels and period correct fog lights. Plus Factory
Air Conditioning to cool you down. Other features include Exhaust
Cutouts with electric Cut-Outs to bypass the mufflers, Rear View
Mirror with Integrated Reverse Camera, GT40 Floor and Sill Mats,
and Alcantara Interior.
While the exterior is truly a showstopper, the heart of the beast
Equipped with a Roush 427IR Windsor block topped off with 8 Stack
Electronic Fuel Injection, this engine pumps out 560 horsepower and
540 torque. 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.
P2178 is ready for action. Whether it be a concours, a track day or
a Sunday drive, this award winning GT40 will excel in putting a
smile on your face.
GT40P2178 is titled in Nevada as a 1966 Ford and would cost well
over $220,000 to recreate. GT40P2178 has just over 10,100 miles on
the chassis and is currently available for $184,950.
