1966 Superformance GT40 MKII Ride-Along and Drive-By
OFFERED WITHOUT RESERVE
The legend that is the Ford GT40 is one that is so ingrained within automotive culture that it is widely known yet certainly bears repeating. Conceived in the 1960s, The GT40’s primary objective was to challenge Ferrari's dominance at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The GT40 not only achieved this but also secured four consecutive victories from 1966 to 1969, cementing its legacy in motorsport lore. During this most golden of racing eras, the GT40 progressed from the MK I through to the MK IV with both Ford and John Wyer Engineering building road variants. These street versions retained much of the racing DNA, incorporating advanced materials and performance-focused features. Its blend of performance and elegance on the road has left an indelible mark on automotive culture, making the GT40 an enduring icon in the realms of racing and high-performance automobiles.
With time and its iconic status, the GT40 was bound to be replicated. Only a certain select group of these modern variants earn the right to be called a GT40 – those built by Superformance of Jupiter, Florida. The Superformance GT40 is a true continuation car, authorized by the original holders of the GT40 trademark, and eligible for the official GT40 registry. The dimensions of both the MK I and MK II are true to the 1960s original, with 90 percent of the parts between the continuation cars and the period-built cars interchangeable with the racing versions built to comply with the FIA’s strict Appendix K regulations.
