1966 Ford GT40

115,437

Built by Olthoff Racing of Mount Ulla, North Carolina, this CAV GT40 is about as close to riding a bullet as you can get. And, with less than 100 miles on its bright digital odometer, it’s a fresh, fully sorted track machine that’s ready to rock and roll! As a high quality replica of Ford’s original GT40, this killer CAV utilizes a durable Vinylester body, which is much stronger than traditional resin, to create a fully sealed sports car. That body, the product of 200 man-hours of skilled hand-shaping, is mocked to its chassis long before the car hits final assembly. And that Vinylester surface adds both form and function by stiffening the car’s frame during hard cornering and presenting a smooth canvas for top notch 2-stage. Speaking of top-notch 2-stage, sprayed in-house and buffed to a brilliant shine, this Ford’s vivid red pigment frames traditional white stripes to create timeless aesthetics that are sure to keep fans marveling. And, while it isn’t easy to create a world-class show stopper out of complex resin shapes, the car’s excellent build is a true testament to the 600 man-hours of labor invested by its first-rate manufacturer. Tilt this coupe’s tail and you’ll find a surly Roush 353 IR V8 that, in January of 2007, twisted stout 10 to 1 compression into 453 dyno-proven horsepower and 426 lb./ft. of dyno-proven torque! Behind that mill, a tough McLeod clutch bumps an RBT-sourced ZF 5-speed, which jerks big, 4.22 gears. That drivetrain hangs in a TIG-welded, stainless monocoque chassis, which rides a fully independent suspension. Turns come courtesy of manual rack-and-pinion steering. Stops come courtesy of four modern calipers, which utilize electric vacuum assist to clamp four vented rotors. And all that proven track prowess rolls on 17-inch knock-offs, which twist 245/45 Michelin Pilot Sports in front of 335/35 Michelin Pilot Sports.
