The Superformance built MK1 program was designed to recreate the original Ford GT40 that used the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1966 to annihilate Ferrari. This car was born from such a great amount of detail, and attention to every aspect, that you can call it by the GT40 name, and the majority of the parts are interchangeable with the original. In addition, it also carries the ability to be registered in the GT40 registry with chassis number P2366. 

Up for sale though Hillbank Motor Corporation, this car is dressed in the 1969 Gulf Livery to replicate the back to back P1075 LeMans Champion. This particular example was built for Right Hand Drive driving, and has orange patient wheels wrapped in AVON CR6ZZ tires to give it the same stance as the original GT40.
