Powertrain

The powerplant is an all-American V-8 from Ford's modular engine family. The MOD 5.4-liter V-8 in the GT40 concept features aluminum four-valve heads, forged crankshaft, H-beam forged rods and aluminum pistons fed by a supercharger, all combining to make more than 500 horsepower and 500 foot-pounds of torque.

<http://216.182.195.120/images//gt40_4.jpg> These figures match or exceed those of the most powerful period GT40, a car that could handily top 200 mph on the Mulsanne straight at Le Mans. Because of the supercharger and high-revving, free-breathing valvetrain, the new car produces this astounding power from an efficient 5.4-liter V-8 engine. The power is put to the road through an RBT six-speed manual transmission.

The GT40 was never about ultimate top speed. It was about running the 24 hours of LeMans and beating Team Ferrari after Enzo Ferrari dissed Henry the II on forming a combined racing team. 60's era racing tires don't even come close to the Goodyears that came stock on our Bullitts as far as technology and tread compounds. Put an original on new tech tires and see what would happen.

I like that car, that's gotta be a Viper eater, vette smasher, etc.. I guarantee you that with this car you can see F355 and/or diablo owners interested in an American Legend.

I'd love to start saving my pennies for something that nice looking, wifey even likes it.

I'll take a white one with blue stripes please!
