Description

‘An original GT40 is priceless, but an equally charismatic alternative is the GTD40. The pair are indistinguishable from five paces, let alone 50, so faithful is GTD’s replica even to the discerning eye. The GTD is no “kit car”, but a thoroughbred in every sense.’ – Autosport magazine 1989.

A decade on from its final Le Mans win, the GT40 had become firmly established as one of the all-time great classic sports cars, leading to an increased demand for unmolested originals and the start of a replica-building industry. With a mere 107 GT40s being constructed at Ford Advanced Vehicles’ Slough factory between 1966 and 1972, it is hardly surprising that a cottage industry of independent manufacturers arose to satisfy the continuing demand for replicas of Ford’s charismatic Le Mans winner.

Built designed and developed by the Legend Prof John Morris and his team in south Africa , this incredible incarnation of the GT40 is built to be as exacting as an original. Powered by a stunning 5 litre V8. Finsihed in Silver with black stripes and a complementary black interior this wonderful example can only be described as excellent in every respect. A full build specification is available on request. Not to be confused with the lesser Kit examples this car is certainly worth closer inspection.
