There are few classic super cars that can rival Ford‘s GT40 and with good reason. The real deal is hard to come across, but this Superformance GT40 MK II is as close as one can get to an original GT40. This is so close to the real deal in fact that it’s recognized by the SAAC GT40 world registry and according to Superformance, it can interchange 90-percent of its parts with an original car.

While we aren’t fortunate enough to see this thing in the flesh, the photos tell a good story of just how meticulously built this GT40 MK II is by Ed Wayland Company in Cornelius, NC. By law, Superformance was unable to sell their vehicles with a complete drivetrain, so it was up to the customers to decide which powertrain to mate to their creation. The previous owner of this GT40 went to Roush and dropped $26,000 for their Performance 427IR giving this GT40 560-hp and 540 lb-ft of torque.

The powerplant is mated to a $10,000 RBT ZF 25DS-2 six-speed manual transmission helping get all the power to the 17-inch Halibrand-style wheels wrapped with Michelin Pilot Sport rubber. And then there’s the immaculate interior, featuring original-style bucket seats reupholstered with leather and Willans four-point racing harnesses.

Looking to add this to your collection? Asking price is $129,900 with just 1,326-miles on the odometer.
