It seems a bit of a jump to go from having a designer assist in a design to claiming that the design is based on something .
So sad to learn that Ford had no hand in designing the GT40 .
Why was it called the GT40 ?
At least I suspect that no one will claim a non American influence with the Thunderbolt , Talladega , Cyclone Spoiler , Hemi Superbird or Hemi Dodge Daytona . All of theses were available as street cars and able to easily triple the National speed limit and then some .
There were Thunderbolts delivered with the 427 SOHC engine that delivered a modest 616 HP in stock trim . No blowers , turbos or nitrous needed .
