1969 GT40 MKI

A Gulf Liveried GT40 won the 24-hours of Le Mans in 1968 and 1969, cementing the sports car's place in racing history. One of the nicest continuation GT40's in the world, P/2285 is a tribute to that incredible feat and would be the centerpiece of any collection.

This GT40 was custom built with the famous 1968/1969 extra-wide body rear clamshell, including larger rear wheels and tires. Clad in Gulf Blue and Orange with gold pearl overlay, the car features original German Talbot side mirrors for a period-correct look.

Powered by a Ford 351W bored and stroked to 427 c.i.d., no expense was spared to build the spectacular V8. Completed by L&R Engine Builders of Santa Fe Springs, California, the engine was built to dominate on the track. The V8 features premium components including a World Man-O-War billet cap block rated up to 1,200 HP, Callies crankshaft, Oliver billet steel rods, custom Ross forged dished pistons and 3/8" Chromoly pushrods. A Weber style Sequential Port Fuel Injection tops off the 647 HP engine while a Bundle-Of-Snakes 180-degree ceramic coated headers scavenge the exhaust. Shifting is smooth with the original 5-Speed that was built by the world-famous RBT ZF Transmissions of Anaheim, California.

The car boasts a four-wheel Hydraulic Suspension lift system to help move the low-slung GT40. For street use, it rides on BMR 17” spinner wheels shod with Pirelli racing tires. There are also 15" x12" Wheels available with AVON Historic tread for car shows.

P/2285 is an amazing piece of engineering that is both street legal and ready for the track. The GT40 has a top speed of 236 MPH (calculated from tire diameter, axle gearing, and maximum engine rpm).

This is an authentic continuation GT40 race car manufactured under the scrutiny of Safir GT40 Spares, Ltd., the undisputed legal holder of the GT40 trademark. GT40 P/2285 is licensed and registered by the California DMV as Smog Exempt. It has 31,354 miles and is available for purchase at $249,950.
