A product of the current American 'retro' trend, the new GT40 (now to be known as simply the 'GT') marks a welcome rebirth of one of the most significant supercars of all time.
Styling remains faithful to the original, although the new model is both longer and taller, while concessions to modern electronic driver aids are kept to a minimum. Performance is awesome thanks to a 550bhp supercharged V8 coupled with a lightweight 1200kg body. 0-60mph in under 4 seconds and a 200mph plus maximum are on offer.
A lot was expected from the new model and considering the history of its predecessor, it had a lot to live up to. However the GT has turned out to be every bit the car it's illustrious predecessor became, and then some!
