To many car enthusiasts, the term “kit car” has a pejorative connotation. You know what we’re talking about, right? A VW Beetle based sports car with ill-fitting fiberglass bodywork. A Pontiac Fiero dressed in Ferrari- or Lamborghini-aping drag. Those sorts of creations which can be called the four-wheeled equivalents of white horses with black stripes painted on their flanks.
The products of Superformance, however, don’t fall into that category. Their fully-licensed and quite convincing replicas of the Shelby Cobra, Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe and Ford GT40 are perfect for enthusiasts who love the originals, but would have to win at least one Powerball jackpot to be able to afford the real deal. Plus, as you can see in this video focusing on the GT40s, you can hoon them to your heart’s content without fear of bending a priceless piece of motorsports history. Hey Lance Stander (Superformance CEO and human subject of this video), when can we expect a Ford GT40 Mark IV kit?
