The wheels are wonderful BRM style 18-inch light alloys shod with 335/30-18 tyres at the rear and 285/30-18 tyres at the front.
In September 2017, this Ford GT40 Continuation was part of the ‘Wall of Fame’ exhibition to celebrate the anniversary of the Club des V in Belgium. The event was inaugurated by former Le Mans winner Jacky Ickx (1969 with Ford GT) and he put his signature inside the right door of this fantastic Ford GT 40 Continuation. This racing car comes very well documented, including many press clippings. This is a unique opportunity to buy a Ford GT 40 Mk I 1966 Continuation signed by Ford GT 40 Le Mans winner Jacky Ickx!
