GT40 for Sale

I am selling my GT40. It is registered as 6 GTD (although the registration is not included in the sale price). The car (originally a GTD) was built in 1999 and I purchased the car in 2001. I then extensively developed it with Frank Catt of Wealden Engineering, a company specialising in replica GT40s (as well as some original cars). The car was initially silver. In this spec, it was tested by EVO magazine in August 2007 against an original Ford GT40 owned by Ford, the 2006 Ford GT that had recently been launched and a GT40 replica from Ray Mallock. They said the car was "utterly fantastic".

I have some spare copies of the magazine that are in as new condition that will come with the car.

In 2011, the car was completely stripped down and rebuilt by Wealden Engineering to create an authentic replica of the 1075 in the spec that won LeMans in 1969. This included replacing the engine with one that haas original Gurney Weslake heads. The rear GTD setup was replaced with the Southern GT rear end which allows the engine to sit in the same lower position as the original cars, so that the top of the Webers sit below the rear window and allowing for better handling.

The car can be used on the track or the road. It is currently set up for track as I have been using it at Ascari Race Resort. However, it can easily be converted back for road use and the parts to do that come with the car. The front and rear clip, as well as the nostrils are made from carbon fibre saving a significant amount of weight. The car weighs just 1088Kg even though I had a hidden rollcage built into the spaceframe to give far better crash protection.

I attach some photos of the car before and after the rebuild to Gulf spec.

The key details of the car are as follows:
  • Dart aluminium block with original Gurney Weslake heads built by Peter Knight of Knight Racing services. 544BHP and 509 FTlb of torque.
  • Dry sump oil system
  • Fully rose jointed suspension
  • ZFQ gearbox
  • AP racing brakes
  • Original Italian 48 IDA weber carburettors
  • Carbon fibre front and rear clips
  • Tilton pedal box
  • Bundle of snakes exhaust. Straight pipes on it at present but car comes with silenced pipes for road use
  • MK 1 (double) nostril as well as MKII (single) nostril in carbon fibre
  • Built in roll cage and side impact bars protecting against side impact
  • Removable brace to add extra stiffness for racing
  • Glass rear window
  • Avon slicks and road tyres
  • 3 sets of 15” BRM wheels with knock-on spinners
  • Plumbed in fire system
  • UK MSA logbook for hillclimbs and sprints
  • Rod gearchange
  • Inside panelled out to look like monocoque
  • Custom wind deflectors for driving without windows (also have original windows with helivents)
  • Towing eyes
  • Marchal driving lights
  • Original GT40 rear view mirror
  • Gurney flaps, front and rear
  • Quick release steering wheel
The price is £150,000, a fraction of what I have spent on the car. In 2007, I had already spent £110,000 on the car and the complete rebuild in 2012 was substantially more (the engine alone was >£40,000). The car looks and sounds fantastic. It always attracted more attention than any of the modern day hypercars at Ascari. I even got a gift from the Chief Designer of Lamborghini who saw my car in the garage there when they were launching the Huracan (I let him sit in it and take some photos)!

Lots more information to those that are interested.

Nice car Martin. Very nicely done. I take it that it currently is in the UK ? If so, do you have a shipper that you use.
Thanks
Regards Brian
 
Philip, the internal support bar is removable, it was installed to meet the then current FIA rules, but two bolts and its out for road use.
