The MkII GT40 was built in celebration of Carroll Shelby’s 85TH birthday. The car is a near-exact replication of the original race car, featuring the original styling inside and out; the only difference is the use of electro-galvanized sheet steel in the construction.
The Shelby 85th Commemorative GT40 is built to accommodate only a Shelby branded engine. The top of the line engine includes the Shelby 427FE V8.
The car will be available in three different colors: Arcadian Blue with whites stripes, black with silver stripes and red with white stripes, and will be limited to a production of 85 units in each color.
