The Superformance workshop makes age-old versions of legendary models, one of their most popular cars is the Ford GT40, which is delivered on a rolling basis but without an engine as standard, but of course it is also possible to order an age-old V8 engine. They are also affected by the ban on the marketing of cars with internal combustion engines, so development has already begun on the electric version of the GT40 imitation.

Everrati, a redesign of the classic cars of the sixties, will help them with this, a new element that this time they will also make minor changes to the design in order to install the most powerful drive / battery possible. Currently, the Porsche 911 conversion is Everrati’s most powerful car, the twin-engine system will be 500 horsepower, and the Ford GT40 is reported to be at least 800 horsepower. More details will be provided by Everrati and Superformance in the coming months, with the car unveiled in a year at the earliest.

Henry Ford II’s Capri for personal use is auctioned off

Henry Ford II used three cars during his visits to Europe, including the Capri 2.8it shown here, which he drove in person. This 1981 coupe was shipped separately from the Cologne production line to Britain to the Special Vehicle Engineering workshop at the Dunton Development Center. There he then got the paintwork of the unique Strato Silver / Graphite Gray, and here he got his three-speed automatic transmission.

The cabin has leather seats made by Ford designers, and the driver’s seat has been widened to fit the full-bodied Henry Ford II. The special car was sold in 1983, bought by Ron Mellor, head of development, who sold it on the factory billboard in 1986, then bought by designer Alan Jarman, who announced it in 1993 – on the condition that only Capri Club International sells to a member.
