Shelby GT40 MKII

The Superformance GT40 MKII

A new line of vehicles from Shelby American, Shelby Legendary Cars and Superformance called the Cinema Series will celebrate some of the greatest icons of film. The initial group will include Shelby Cobra roadsters, Daytona Coupes and GT40s as seen in the epic movie Ford v. Ferrari.

Based on vehicles successfully raced by Ken Miles, Chris Amon, Lloyd Ruby, Denny Hulme, Bruce McLaren, Dave MacDonald and driven by Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) only 100 total cars in the series will be offered worldwide. Each vehicle will be based on a car shown in the movie and come with complete documentation.

The blue / white stripe and orange flashes “Ken Miles” edition MkII big block GT40 based on chassis P/1015 that was driven to victory at Daytona in 1966 and competed at Le Mans. The 1966 black Amon/McLaren GT40 (based on chassis P/1046) awarded victory at Le Mans by the ACO

The continued strong demand for the original movie cars led to this new series of cars. The GT40 will begin at $189,995. The Shelby cars will be built to order and delivered with a Shelby American serial number for documentation in the Shelby American Worldwide Registry. Orders are now being accepted

The chassis is an exact replication of the original monococque unibody structure down to the press steel roof spider. The only departure is the use of electro-galvanized sheet steel in the construction. The chassis, at over 12,000 pounds per degree is stiffer than any other chassis on the market, and is made up of over 244 laser cut and bent or pressed parts.


Pressed steel roof and beautifully finished body.


The suspension features the original race car lay out. So original are the GT40 continuation models that two thirds of the parts are interchangeable with an original. Bilstein shocks with H&R springs.


The recommended power source is a specially prepared Roush engine with the new RBT/ZF style 5-speed transaxle but owners also have the option to fit a Ford-based 289, 302, 351W, 427FE Big Block.
