This Could Be The Most Expensive Ford GT40 Replica Ever
There were two cars built and prepared in the iconic Gulf Blue livery, the other being Bruce McLaren’s black GT40. Despite structural and mechanical details, both are meticulously detailed to replicate the original cars built by Caroll Shelby. Topping it off, the Number 1 car has been signed by Charlie Agapiou, Ken Miles’ crew chief in 1966, and Peter Miles, Ken’s son.
The unibody frame is built from electro-galvanized steel and features a pressed steel roof. Originally, the MKII Gt40 was powered by a 7.0-liter engine mated to a four-speed manual transmission. Powering the replica is a specially prepped Roush 427IR V-8 engine stroked to 511 CI and making 600 horsepower.
