Sunset Classics presents this fantastic 1966 Ford GT40 replica for sale. This is a brand new 2008 GT40 Replicar built by HiTech Automotive of South Africa. Even though the car is brand new it is registered as 1966 so registering the car in restrictive states (such as California) will be hassle-free. This amazing automobile is truly brand new and it has only 225 actual miles. Basically it was assembled and tested and now it is ready for sale.
The $27,325 Roush engine package includes a R427 power plant capable of producing 560 h.p. The estimated top speed of this race ready GT40 is a breathtaking 217mpr. The estimated 0-60 mph time is less than 3 seconds. The engine also has a Roush fuel injection system. Every item on this particular GT40 replica is special order, and the gentleman in charge of the build of this car bought the best of everything and he left no available option off this car. This GT40 even has heat and air conditioning. The Gurney bubble in the driver's door alone is a $600 addition.
Since Carroll Shelby was directly involved creating these extremely successful race cars it is only appropriate to have his actual signature on a dash plaque in the cabin. As you may remember, Henry Ford II wanted a car that could beat Ferrari on the race circuit in the early 60's so he hired Shelby to make that dream a reality. That dream came true and the original Ford GT40 was the winner of the 24 hours of Le Mans four times in a row (1966-1969).
The GT40 offered here is a beautiful white with indigo blue stripes (the photos didn't capture the stunning deep blue stripes - they are blue not black). To order a car like this requires a long waiting list and a final assembly that can cost $10,000 and take up to several months to complete. This car is ready to roll. It is a stunning car that can be in your very own collection within days. Thank you for your interest.
