    Aluminum Plate over Engine in Superformance GT40MKII

    16 years with P2120 a MKII. The metal plate was removed during the build and replaced with plastic by Olthoff. No issues at all. Just another data point.

    I was trying to say that I actually heard about it first on major US news googling required. Then I googled "Plymouth UK" and it was all over the place. How the heck does one edit a post after submitting it?

    Show us your GT40!

    P2120 at Road America quite a few years back at the 45 anniversary GT40 meet (I think) 2008. It is hard to believe we have had it almost 15 years now. It was one of the first batch that Superformance made (for a very reasonable price back then).

    What's happening in the USA ?

    Can this thread be ended please? There are literally thousands of sites on the interenet to "debate" about this. That is not what, I hope, this site is about. Already, two other enthusiast sites I used to like have degraded to the point of not being worth visiting. I personally do not care...

    Chassis’ in order BEST TO WORST

    I can tell you that they weren't always this expensive. I think what they have done is to continue to find a market at a continually rising price. I bought in when they first started and got one of the first batch made. The price back then for the complete and painted roller was some $65k...
