SEMA Oct 4th 2018 at 1:45PMSuperformance 'Future GT Forty' with turbocharged V6 coming to SEMA Show
It uses a modified version of the new GT's 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6
Superformance has made plenty ofGT40 replicas in the past, and it's bringing a new one to this year'sSEMA Show that uses a modified version of the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 out of the current Ford GT. No, the car isn't built off the new GT's chassis, but it ends up looking a bit like the GT from 2005 with a dash of the newest version in front. What makes these Superformance cars special is that they're built on chassis designed to replicate the original GT40 as close as possible. About two-thirds of the steel chassis parts are completely interchangeable with the original car from the 1960s.
This one happens to have a weird name, Future GT Forty, but the folks over at Superformance appear to have created what looks like an awesome car to drive on paper. The twin-turbo V6 gets Garrett turbos and a fuel system by Aeromotive. A custom exhaust from Magnaflow plays the note out the back, while all engine installation work is handled by V's Performance. You'll get a Quaife five-speed manual transmission for this beast too — guaranteed to be more engaging than the seven-speed dual-clutch in the current GT. Ridetech Shockwave provided an air suspension, and HRE wheels get wrapped in sticky Michelin rubber. It's been painted and stickered by Superformance and Hillbank Motorsports to complete the appearance's effect.
Unfortunately, Superformance doesn't provide any power or acceleration figures for the car. We'll be driving the Future GT Forty after the 2018 SEMA Show to see what Superformance is capable of making, so look out for our first drive review. In the meantime, you'll be able to check it out at the show in the Magnaflow booth come Oct 30.
