New MK 11 GT40 offering from Tornado Sports cars plus Ford 5.0l V8 Coyote option
Posted by Madabout News on Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012 at 11:49 PM

Tornado sports cars have been busy having secured a rear section moulding which emulates the Mk11 GT40 which finished 1st, 2nd and 3rd at Le Mans 1966. Tornado now offer this rear section with the additional air intakes and vents as a Mk11 kit or Mk 1 versions can be converted to a Mk11.

Parts available from Tornado to complete the Mk11 look are as follows;

Rear body section
Periscope vents
Engine cover vent
Rear grille set
Rear tail light set
Rear spoiler
Front single vent hatch
Front hatch splitter
Front hatch hinges
Front body section wing humps

Rear Mk11 GT40 body section now available from Tornado Sportscars

All of the above items can be used to build an authentic looking replica of the famous Le Mans winning cars from 1966.

Tornado have also been busy with an update which brings the power plant for their replica bang up to date with the use of the 5.0 litre Ford Coyote engine from the current day Ford Mustang.

As you can imagine with an engine upgrade brings other upgrades and the conversion to the Coyote engine is no exception. Tornado have worked out a new bellhousing to mate the Coyote engine to the Renault Transaxle and also a new exhaust system, and it looks just awesome.
