Pathfinder Motorsports LLC is the proud and exclusive distributor of the worlds most famous and coveted racecar of all time:  the GT40/R Competition.  This is not a replica or kitcar, but rather an authentic continuation model of the famed GT40.  It carries an original GT40 ‘P’ chassis number and is fully eligible for both the Shelby American Automobile Club and Safir GT40 registries. 


The GT40/R Competition is bolt-for-bolt virtually identical to the GT40s built in the 1960’s – so identical, in fact, that it has been accepted for vintage and historic racing by SVRA and HSR.  Built by Hi-Tech/Superformance, the GT40/R is licensed by Safir GT40 Spares and is the only car authorized to be called a ‘GT40®’.


With the original cars selling for over $2 million, the GT40/R provides an identical racing experience for a fraction of the price. 


Pathfinder Motorsports also sells other 1960’s vintage continuation cars for the track and street, as well as an assortment of used race and sports cars.  Enjoy our website and contact us with any questions.






 

The GT40® was created in response to Henry Ford II’s commitment to beating Ferrari at LeMans in the mid-1960’s.  In an unprecedented development program, spending upwards of a quarter of a billion dollars (adjusted for inflation), Ford created an iconic sports racer that went on to win at all of the world’s major race tracks, including Le Mans, where is came in first place in 1966, 1967, 1968, and 1969.


The GT40/R has followed in the footsteps of the original racecars by posting wins in its first races, including a first at the US Vintage Grand Prix at Watkins Glen and first in the New York Governor’s Cup Race in 2009.
