UK: For fast-track people with £250,000 - FORD BUILDS REPLICA GT40S. - Twenty eight years ago Ford Advanced Vehicles started building the GT40. Six years and four Le Mans victories later production ceased.

Twenty eight years ago Ford Advanced Vehicles started building the GT40. Six years and four Le Mans victories later production ceased.

Four of the original engineers have been coaxed from retirement.

The bait? A project by GT Developments to produce 50 replicas. Modifications mean that instead of the original 240 mph, the new car's optimum is a stately 200 mph.
