Everrati Automotive Limited has received a major accolade at the GQ Car Awards 2022, with the leading lifestyle magazine naming an electric-powered version of the GT40, developed by Everrati and Superformance, as its “Racing Legend of The Year”.
Based in Oxford, UK, Everrati specialises in redefining and futureproofing automotive icons by integrating the very latest electric vehicle (EV) powertrains. An electric version of the iconic endurance racer, the GT40, is the first model to be developed through a strategic partnership with US company Superformance. Based in Jupiter, Florida, Superformance is a global leader in the manufacturer of 1960s-era continuation component sports cars.
Everrati’s mission is to preserve and enrich some of the world’s most revered and desirable automotive icons. The company equips such cars for a new age of zero-emission mobility by re-engineering them with state-of-the-art electric drivetrains while maintaining and enhancing the character of the original. Alongside enabling historic vehicles to travel emission-free, Everrati’s highly efficient electric power units and battery systems also deliver superior performance.
The British company’s passion for celebrating classic high-performance driving in a contemporary sustainable manner dovetails perfectly with GQ’s radical refocus of its annual Car Awards for 2022.
With a high power 60kWh bespoke battery and 800bhp on offer from twin motors, the electrified GT40 can surge to 60mph in less than four seconds and on to a top speed in excess of 125mph. The car’s authenticity is equally beyond reproach. Inspired by the GT40 developed by Ford and Carroll Shelby, which broke Ferrari’s stranglehold on the Le Mans 24 Hours, winning the gruelling French endurance race four times in a row between 1966 and 1969, the Everrati Superformance GT 40 is engineered as an authentic continuation of the original. Such is the car’s impeccable integrity that it is legally permitted to use the ‘GT40’ name and carry a coveted GT40/P chassis number.
Everrati was founded to further the legacies of some of the most desirable and iconic cars in the world, redefining and precision re-engineering them with the latest electric drivetrains, maintaining and enhancing the character of the original. Each Everrati is fitted with a custom-designed electric power unit and battery system, leading to enhanced performance and a zero-emissions future.
Superformance offers a full line of high-performance component cars celebrating some of the most iconic vehicles of all time. All vehicles are built under license from trademark holders including Shelby and SAFIR GT40, adding authenticity and value. Sold as a rolling chassis, a Superformance car can be configured with heritage or modern drivetrains.
The Everrati and Superformance partnership allows enthusiasts to drive an electric-powered GT40, with development of this first model already well underway at Everrati’s UK development centre in Upper Heyford, a former US airbase in the English Cotswolds. The new model will be dynamically revealed in the coming months.
Everrati’s current line-up of models includes:
- Porsche 911 (964) Coupe, Targa, Cabriolet in Pure, Signature, and Gulf Signature Editions
- Land Rover Series IIA and Series III in both 88 and 109-inch configurations
- GT40 in partnership with Superformance, including officially licenced Gulf Edition
- Mercedes-Benz W113 SL ‘Pagoda’
