Shelby American, headquartered in Las Vegas, is offering a limited edition only 20 Shelby GT40 MKIIs to celebrate the original car’s 1-2-3 finish at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966. The “50th Anniversary Shelby GT40” is a continuation of the original Ford big-block MKII model.

“Carroll Shelby’s involvement in Ford’s Le Mans program is one of the best-known chapters in our racing history,” said Joe Conway, co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International and CEO of Shelby American. “Carroll Shelby shared Henry Ford II’s desire to defeat Ferrari on the international stage to earn American automakers worldwide respect.”

The new GT40s are built on an original-style steel monocoque chassis and fully independent suspension. The continuation car is 163 inches long and 40 inches high, the exact dimensions of the original. It even uses the same twin 10-gallon gas tank setup and original-style 15-inch Halibrand pin drive wheels. Shelby says more than 2/3 of the parts can be interchanged with the original GT40 MKII racecar.
