1969 GT40 MKI
Superformance Tool Room GT40 P/1163 is finished in the classic Gulf Blue and Orange livery with black interior. The Tool Room configuration mechanically and visually is a tribute to the GT40 P/1075, the 1968 and 1969 24 Hours of Le Mans winner.
GT40 P/1163 is powered by a 302 CI V-8 engine with rare Gurney/Westlake heads and Weber stacked induction. This power unit is mated to a ZF 5-speed manual transmission.
While some 50th Anniversary GT40 MkI cars were offered standard with A/C and a choice of left- or right-hand drive configuration, this special edition “Tool Room GT40P/1075” is authentic to how these winning cars were raced in the late 1960s Approximately 90% of the parts are interchangeable with the original GT40s, and this car was built to race in vintage FIA events
This car was built to race in vintage FIA events with a lower compression ratio compensating for European fuel and it is eligible for sanctioned historic racing homologation.
