Yeah Ken, it was "a bit" faster than 2012mph and the engine was "a bit" stronger than announced

Morons, was also not a front engine!! Definitely faster than 201mph. Maybe you are talking about the wrong car????

Someone who knows how fast a GT4  2y ago

Okay. This log is just bad.
First off and most importantly: This car clocked 225 on the Mulsanne Straight at 400 revs below max. 201mph is not the top speed of this car. Second, the 0-60 time is more like 5.2. It was a fast car, sure, but that big 427 weighed a ton (not literally). Third, and what most
disproves this entry: This is a mid-engined car.

Oh yeah? 350lbf from a raceprepped 427? Ma, this is so serious

Delete! Only the MkI and MkIII were road legal; the MkII and MkIV were actually not.

@Super8 that is a better picture indeed. Groovy looking GT-40, one of my favorite cars. Small, lightweight, mid-engine, big engine, what could be better. :)

GT40 is one of the best sounding cars in the world, IMO. Make your own opinion:

Well only a few road legal are built and this is only GT40 that fitted with 427 Ford V8 from Ford Galaxie. 2 of them that run in Daytona 1967 racing are fitted with Mercury 427 V8. They are same but it will be different case for collector
