This vehicle is probably one of the fastest road registered Continuation Replica GT40's in Australia and the owner has advised it is easily adjusted for both road and track use.
The owner has supplied the following information about this amazing car:-
HISTORY OF THE CAR
"The car was purchased in 2011 from Peter Ransom (Director & Founder of DRB). Peter and his team of engineers painstakingly hand crafted Shelby Cobras, GT40's and D Type Jaguar replicas for Australia and overseas. When Peter put his own factory built GT40 up for sale, I found the opportunity to purchase the vehicle without any hesitation.
As this was Peter's very own car which was manufactured by DRB, there was a great deal of effort placed with this vehicle as it would be the company show car. Therefore being not a replica kit car, but rather an actual production car.
DETAILS OF THE CAR
Since the purchase in 2011, there were additional modifications and enhancements made to the vehicle as follows:-
The engine is a rebuilt 6.7 Litre or 408ci Stroker Windsor based Dart Block putting out 480bhp at the rear wheels or 600bhp at the flywheel. The Skat Heads have been customed and ported for much better flow. Intake manifolds are an eight stack custom 45mm body set of modified down draught throttle bodies and to complete the package, it is running a tuned bundle of snakes ceramic coated exhaust headers.
The motor is running a Haltec Sport 2000 ECU for easy set up and driveability. The gearbox is a modified Porsche G50 five speed transaxle which was overhauled in 2018 to run shorter ratio top end with a new custom Quaife LSD and NPC custom ceramic clutch.
Recently replaced were special order Harrop 345mm vented with J slotted rotors, front and rear. Each corner is also fitted with custom engineered Penske developed three way adjustable shockers and coil springs purposely made for this car.
The car is running Simmons three piece 18" light weight wheels. Front tyres are 245/40/18 and rears 335/35/18 Toyo R888.
The interior is all alcantara with period correct gauges and switches and include a quick release Motolita leather steering wheel. There is also a rear view camera and driver/passenger six point harness.
With the vehicle comes a second set of wheels and tyres ROH Monaco Series 3 alloys. Also a set of used Pirelli slicks and race exhaust ends, battery charger and spare Momo quick release steering wheel. All the Specification Manual, expense history and paperwork associated with the vehicle are included. Also included is a full cool suit system for motor racing.
There is a history of this car at sprint races around the country, including the Adelaide Motor Sport Festival at Victoria Park, Bathurst, Phillip Island and the Bend.
