Southern GT FOR SALE

Built by myself in the SouthernGT factory, it sailed through IVA and was registered as a new car in 2008.

It took me 4 years to complete.

Built as close as possible to a sixties race car but is fully road legal, and great fun on the road with nearly 500BHP and weighing just over 1000kgs and a marvellous soundtrack just behind your ears.

It is equally happy to pootle if you desire, staying cool with the air conditioning, or stiffen up the dampers, maybe adjust the anti-roll bars for the weather, and it is a wonderful track car.

SouthernGT went to enormous lengths to produce the most sublime chassis with incredible balance and front-end grip. It is enormously confidence inspiring with amazing turn-in. The aluminium block and carbon fibre rear clip combine to give a huge weight saving at the rear which makes the weight distribution near perfect.

Both myself and my other half Sprint it and she has won fastest lady on a number of occasions.

It has been radar timed at 192 mph at an RAF airbase speed trial.



The car is a regular competitor at Goodwood Sprints and has been a class winner at the GRRC Sprint for the past few years.

We have also travelled extensively in it, to Angouleme, Pau, Champagne and Spa as well as all over Blighty.

It has covered 33000 miles so teething problems are long gone.

It was selected to be reviewed (glowingly!) in Classic and Sports Car Magazine.

A well campaigned car, well known in the GT40 community.

Beautiful car Glenn.

May I ask what are the side view mirrors you are using? I had some bullet type mirrors in. That location on my GTD and it was impossible to see anything out of them.

To be perfectly honest..... it was so long ago I can't remember! They obviously don't have the field of vision that we're used to on modern cars, but they are useful. They do need to be adjusted correctly, and I think these have slightly convex lenses.
