A GT40 for the next generation

Everrati Automotive Limited (Everrati), has revealed full technical details on its new high-performance zero emission version of the legendary GT40. The company uses their own EV propulsion platform allied to the latest state-of-the-art electric motors and batteries.

Headquartered in Oxford, Everrati joined forces with Superformance in July last year with the mission of precision re-engineering the legendary Le Mans-winning car for a zero-emissions future. Superformance, based in Florida, is a global leader in the manufacture of 1960s-era continuation component sports cars and produces a rolling chassis for the GT40 built under license. As a result, the Everrati is the world’s only GT40 EV listed in the official Shelby Registry.

Everrati Engineering Director, Mike Kerr: 

“Everrati delivers the best electric drivers’ cars in the world and preserves the original characteristics of the past masters we work on, such that they can be enjoyed by aficionados in the coming age of zero-emission mobility.”

Everrati’s EV powertrain generates up to 800bhp and 800Nm of torque, with twin high-performance radial flux permanent magnet electric motors that supply drive to the car’s rear axle.

The power-dense 60kWh lithium-ion battery integrated into a 700-volt electrical system benefits from advanced liquid-cooling and thermal and safety management systems to support high-performance use on both road and track. The battery can be charged from 20% to 80% via an 80kW CCS fast charger in as little as 45 minutes and provides a range in excess of 125 miles.

The GT40 offers weight a distribution of 40/60 F/R, better than the original 1966 GT40 MKII A which raced at Le Mans (38/62), while its kerb weight of 1,320kg makes it 47kg lighter than a fully fuelled vehicle in period, too.  

Engineered for efficient, ultra-rapid power delivery, the Everrati GT40 delivers blistering acceleration, surging to 60mph in well under four seconds, and on to a top speed of more than 125mph.

Evocative soundtrack synchronised to driver-controlled gearshifts
By using technology developed for high-end racing simulators and existing premium EV sports cars, Everrati gives the driver the option to use ‘Race Mode’. By selecting this mode, the driver (and passenger) experience twin active sound generators, which deliver up to 110db of augmented V8 exhaust sound.

The gear shifter – which is normally used to select drive, reverse or neutral – also enables the driver to select virtual gears, with each shift synchronised to the sound generators and torque delivery giving a corresponding momentary ‘pause’ in acceleration to ensure driver engagement that invokes the experience of driving a car with a conventional transmission.
