Superformance GT40P2212 is a Mk1 body style GT40 painted in 1968/’69 Gulf Livery. This build was crafted and painstakingly augmented to replicate the back-to-back LeMans Championship P1075 car to exacting detail.

The original owner ordered this Superformance GT40 Mk1 with the extra-wide body option, and with RHD. Adding 14″ wide wheels with Avon historic hand-grooved rubber provides this ‘fab forty’ with the correct—menacing—stance.

He then invested the time and treasure to carefully replicate every exterior component to display his GT40 in the same competition livery as at the 1969 LeMans 24-Hours. Said livery and trim items include: raised Zeus fasteners, exterior pit light, front running light, bug deflector, decal kit [needs only the “6” attached], round fog lamps, exterior power cutoff switch, turn signals, twin pin rear clam.
