Footnotes

  • A decade on from its final Le Mans win, the GT40 had become firmly established as one of the all-time great classic sports cars, leading to an increased demand for unmolested originals and the start of a replica-building industry. With a mere 107 GT40s being constructed at Ford Advanced Vehicles' Slough factory between 1966 and 1972, it is hardly surprising that a cottage industry of independent manufacturers arose to satisfy the continuing demand for replicas of Ford's charismatic Le Mans winner. Founded in 1984 by Ray Christopher, GT Developments soon established itself as one of the foremost manufacturers of accurate GT40 replicas, over 600 of which have been produced over the years.

    Autosport and Autocar magazines tested an original, GTD-built example in 1989. The former had this to say: 'An original GT40 is priceless, but an equally charismatic alternative is the GTD40. The pair are indistinguishable from five paces, let alone 50, so faithful is GTD's replica even to the discerning eye. The GTD is no "kit car", but a thoroughbred in every sense.' Praise indeed.

    This example was built in the UK in 2000 for its first owner before being acquired by a Dutch enthusiast in 2005; it was next owned by another Dutchman, who sold the car to the current vendor in January 2019. The body is GT40 Mk1 with a modified front nostril providing a deeper vent for improved cooling while retaining the Mk1's original double inlet. Producing circa 375bhp, the 4.9-litre Ford V8 engine is equipped with quadruple Weber carburettors, Edelbrock Performer aluminium cylinder heads, MSD ignition, and a crossover exhaust system, and drives via a five-speed dogleg gearbox. The car is finished in Rosso Corsa with black leather interior, the latter featuring a heater, Smiths instruments, and five-point safety harnesses. Other noteworthy features include an immobiliser, chromed suspension uprights, Wilwood brakes, Spax adjustable shock absorbers, and replica BRM wheels shod with Yokohama tyres: 215/60 front, 265/50 rear. Currently displaying a total of circa 19,500 miles on the odometer, this top-quality GT40 re-creation is offered with a bill of sale, V5C registration document, current MoT, and a recent maintenance invoice totalling £2,000.
