Car description

This Mk1 Superformance Ford GT40R was built in 2011 by Zappa Racing. It is a continuation production car with a GT40 chassis number (P2095R). This particular car was a successful race car in the SVRA historic series. It has so many original details making it difficult to differentiate from an original car.This car has a built in roll cage from the factory making it a safer way to enjoy the historic bliss of driving a GT40. The car also has a 'racing required' plumbed in fire extinguisher.
It is as per the original race cars, a right hand drive / steering car with the period correct right hand cill gated gear shifter, but for on road use, you are in reality sitting very close to the centre of the car.
The car has the RTB gearboxes as used in the original, with this one benefitting from a recent full rebuild by RBT Transmissions (Lloyd Butfoy) who builds these boxes for all the original race cars too!
It comes with a spare 110 octane ford 302 race motor dyno'd to 575bhp built by Holman Moody (the same builder who built the original race motors in the 60's) and dry sump system. Currently installed is the ford 302 (stroked to 363) pump gas motor with approx 550bhp running with the 4 x webber period downdraft carburetors. The interior, including seats are actually made to the exact design of the original period seats (but for safety made with leather instead of parachute fabric that burned badly!). Even the Mota-Lita steering wheel and carved wooden shift knob are the same as the period items. It is titled as a road car (1965 Ford GT40) and can be used as such.
As a race car, it is fitted with period correct nitrogen filled race dampers and has excellent handling even compared to modern sports cars.
This car has benefitted from extensive rebuild once retired from the racing circuit when I purchased it, including a full rewire / re-plumbed and dissassembly and re-assembly. The Pump gas motor has only run for a few hours total (all on road) and the race motor had done about 20hrs since its last refresh just prior to my acquisition a few years ago. I have extensive documentation of the work done on the car since my ownership as well as a file of all the technical info and race documentation etc. The car comes with its SVRA historic Log Book as well.
Included are a number of spare parts including:Holman Moody drysumped race motor (ford 302) incl. all drysump equipmentroll barsexhaust mufflers (if you want it to be a bit quieter..)1 x spare set of wheel rimsnumerous spare tires (old / used Avon race tires)some of the replaced interior parts (seats/centre console/heater & controls etc)
Every detail of this car is to confirm with the strict historic racing regulations ensuring that this car is as close to the actual original race cars as is possible. Have a piece of history that took on Ferrari in the 60's Le Mans battle, and do the same today in the historic race world. Signed by Brian Redman. Steal the show at any track or car even. Any inspections welcome.Has to be seen / heard / driven to be fully appreciated!
