A year ago, Everrati announced plans to resurrect the legendary Ford GT40 with a purely electric motorization. The project has now reached the stage where the first technical specifications are revealed, we must admit that they are impressive!
What you see in the gallery below may look like a “normal” GT40 – and that’s fine, but there’s a lot going on under the bodywork.
Everrati has developed its own electric motorization “combined with the latest state-of-the-art electric motors and batteries”. The supercar uses a 700-volt architecture, which allows an ultra-fast charging. And if you’re wondering how powerful the electrical system is, Everrati estimates that it puts out 800 horsepower (588 kilowatts) and 800 Newton-meters of torque, making it twice as powerful as the most powerful version of the original GT40.
There are much more powerful electric hypercars, but Everrati’s GT40 stands out from other projects for its weight. The electric GT40 weighs just 2910 pounds (1320 kilograms) , making it 104 pounds (47 kgs) lighter than a mid-1960s GT40.
This is possible thanks to the relatively small 60 kWh battery, which offers a range of more than 125 miles per charge. Charging it from 20-80% through an 80kW CCS port shouldn’t take more than 45 minutes.
The low weight not only means quick acceleration – 0-96 km/h takes “well under four seconds” – but also responsive handling. Everrati also promises a 40/60 front-to-rear weight distribution, which is even better than the original 1966 GT40 MKII, which raced at Le Mans with a 38/62 weight distribution. between front and back. A single-speed reduction transmission and race-derived limited-slip differential transfer power for “lightning-fast power delivery.”
Everrati has also developed a simulated exhaust sound, which can be activated by selecting a race mode for the EV powertrain. It unleashes up to 110 dB of augmented V8 exhaust sound and complements the gear lever, which simulates virtual gear changes synchronized with sound generators.
