Superformance has made plenty of GT40 replicas in the past, and it’s bringing a new one to this year’s SEMA Showthat uses a modified version of the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 out of the current Ford GT. No, the car isn’t built off the new GT’s chassis, but it ends up looking a bit like the GT from 2005 with a dash of the newest version in front. What makes these Superformance cars special is that they’re built on chassis designed to replicate the original GT40 as close as possible. About two-thirds of the steel chassis parts are completely interchangeable with the original car from the 1960s.
This one happens to have a weird name, Future GT Forty, but the folks over at Superformance appear to have created what looks like an awesome car to drive on paper. The twin-turbo V6 gets Garrett turbos and a fuel system by Aeromotive. A custom exhaust from Magnaflow plays the note out the back, while all engine installation work is handled by V’s Performance. You’ll get a Quaife five-speed manual transmission for this beast too — guaranteed to be more engaging than the seven-speed dual-clutch in the current GT. Ridetech Shockwave provided an air suspension, and HRE wheels get wrapped in sticky Michelin rubber. It’s been painted and stickered by Superformance and Hillbank Motorsports to complete the appearance’s effect.
