• The Technical Details Of the Everrati Ford GT40 EV Will Blow Your Mind

It delivers almost double the power of the 1966 racer!

For those of you who might not know, Everrati is a British company specialized in converting iconic vintage cars into electric cars. In 2021, it joined forces with Superformance - a company based in Jupiter, Florida, and reengineered the legendary Le Mans-winning Ford GT40 race car. It was of course a zero-emission vehicle featuring a custom-designed electric drivetrain. Today, about one year later, we finally learn details about the supercar’s full specification figures.

How Fast is the Electric Ford GT40?

Everrati was responsible for the entire engineering development process and all the work was done at its UK headquarters in Upper Heyford. The model was built on Everrati’s own EV propulsion platform and benefitted from all the latest technologies and development processes. This modern GT40 is powered by twin radial flux permanent magnet electric motors that deliver a total of 800 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. For the sake of comparison, the 1966 Le Mans winner was powered by a 7.0-liter V-8 engine that delivered 485 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. The Everrati GT40 goes from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds and up to a top speed of 125 mph. The 1966 GT40, on the other hand, was able to hit a top speed of 213 mph during the Le Mans race.

The two electric motors get their juice from a 60-kWh lithium-ion battery integrated into a 700-volt electrical system. The battery can be charged via an 80kW CCS fast charger and in just 45 minutes it goes from 20 percent to 80 percent, which adds a range of more than 125 miles.

The battery is located behind the driver and the passenger and within the side sills. It is positioned low in the chassis in order to both optimize the rear visibility, but to also ensure a weight distribution of 40/60 front/rear. The 1966 GT40 MKII A had a weight distribution of 38/62 front/rear. Also, the electric version is a little bit lighter than the classic racer: 1,320 kilos (2,910 pounds) versus 1,367 kilos (3,013 lbs).

What other cool features does it offer?

This is of course a silent electric supercar, but Everrati is offering an optional "Race Mode" that will offer an experience similar to the V-8 racer. Just by pressing a button, two sound generators will be activated and they will deliver up to 110 db of augmented V8 exhaust sound. Also, in an electric car, the gear shifter is normally used to select drive, reverse, or neutral. In the Everrati GT40, however, it offers you the ability to select virtual gears, with each shift being perfectly synchronized to the sound delivered by the Race Mode.

You will also benefit from a sophisticated motorsport-derived user display that will display extensive live data about the condition of the powertrain. An onboard 4G data logger will allow Everrati engineers to access all the car’s information for diagnostic purposes, with the owner’s permission, of course.
