Registered under the coveted "SB-100" (California Senate Bill 100)—that means
no smog certification, no California registration hassles for the life of the car!

This 'Fab Forty' faithfully replicates the LeMans winner from 1968 and 1969, the only chassis (ser# P1075) to ever win the 24 Hours of LeMans (24 Heures du Mans) two years in a row. Safir Spares, LLC is the holder of the GT40 trademark and has authorized Superformance to produce this timeless design of the new Superformance MkI.

This beauty is listed in the brand-new Shelby World Registry (page 1,205), and the registration is current until December 2009. Only 1,400 miles.

 drivetrain particulars:
Dart 427 small-block V8 and ZF gearbox

The driveline for this GT40 was well-thought-out and designed to deliver a combination of breathtaking beauty, performance and comfortable cruising.

The engine was professionally built with a Dart small-block 427 cid aluminum block, Scat crank, H-beam rods, Jessel roller rockers, flow-optimized Victor Jr. heads. The top end has Weber 48 IDA carburetors and Gurney Weslake valve covers (the valve covers are powder coated in sintered black to effect an "old school" vintage persona).

The ZF transaxle is the very unit used in the BMW M1, with syncro in all the gears, providing you with precise and positive shifts. The (cooler-equipped) transaxle is equipped with a 3.77:1 ring gear that delivers 75 mph cruising at 2,300 rpm. The transaxle and bellhousing are powder coated to match the exhaust and aluminum block and ceramic-coated bundle of snakes exhaust.
