SUSPENSION

The suspension features the original race car lay out. So original are the GT40 continuation models that two thirds or the parts are interchangeable with an original.

CHASIS

The chassis is an exact replication of the original monococque unibody structure down to the press steel roof spider. The only departure is the use of electro-galvanized sheet steel in the construction. The chassis, at over 12,000 pounds per degree is stiffer than any other chassis on the market, and is made up of over 244 laser cut and bent or pressed parts.
