Can you still remember the Ford GT40 EcoBoost V6 or the 50th Anniversary Ford Shelby GT40 MkII Replica from the Superformance LLC and Hi-tech automotive recall? Both vehicles can hardly be distinguished from the original, just much cheaper. And right now there is another copy of the company from Whatney (Irvine, USA) that is no less spectacular. Curtain up for the 2020 Superformance MKIII-R replica based on the Shelby Cobra. This is, so to speak, a reinterpretation of the classic with the typical unmistakable features. The body made entirely of GfK from the well-known square tube frame At first glance, the frame is typical Cobra, but many details such as the modified fenders, the massive hood with central air opening, the modern front splitter or the sporty rear diffuser are redesigned design features. There is also a beautiful Atlantic blue paint on the exhibition vehicle and two anthracite-colored classic rally stripes stretch over the entire body.
many very own details
The modern chassis with adjustable Bilstein springs, telescopic shock absorbers at the front, etc. comes completely from the present day, and the LED headlights or the 18-inch alloy wheels with the sports brake system hidden behind them are completely up-to-date. All MKIII-R models are equipped as standard with four-piston brakes at the front and a single-piston system at the rear. A six-piston system for the front axle is also available as an option. So here you are also ultra-modern. And that also applies to the Spartan cabin. At first glance, everything here is several decades old, but when you look closely, the instruments turn out to be a digital variant and the sports belts and leather seats are also up to date. As always, Superformance delivers every body without an engine or gearbox, so that everyone can decide for themselves which type of drive should provide propulsion. As befitting the standard, the exhibition vehicle relies on a V8 modified by Roush-Performance with 510 hp and 698 Nm (515 lb-ft) torque, which was coupled to a five-speed automatic transmission.
Motors and gears are available
In case of doubt, however, a V12 would also have space under the hood and an electric drive would also be conceivable for the replica. So that the huge side pipes make sense, we should disregard the E variant. Don't forget the options that can also be ordered directly via Superformance. For example, the company has matching Ford 302, 351, 460, 427/428 cubic inch engines with Tremec 5-speed gearboxes and also Ford Toplader 4-speed gearboxes are available. By the way, all MKIII-R models are equipped as standard with a limited slip differential, a roll bar and a beautiful three-spoke steering wheel. So there are no limits to individuality.
