Everrati Ford GT40 Electrical Conversion Pack 800hp

The government is pushing for the abolition of cars with internal combustion engines, and at some point even classic cars could be off the road.

There is a way to save them, but it requires removing the powertrain and installing a battery electricity setup. Many companies have started offering this service, Volkswagen Group, General Motors When FordBecame involved.

One company that offers comprehensive services is Everrati in the United Kingdom, which developed the electrical conversion for the Ford GT40. Thankfully, the original GT40 wasn’t involved in this conversion. Instead, Everrati used one of the better replica versions built by Jupiter, a Florida-based Superformance.

First unveiled last summer, the Everrati GT40 features a custom-designed powertrain that produces a total of 800hp and 590lb-ft of torque from a pair of rear axle electric motors. It also features a 6.52: 1 compound single reduction transmission and a limited slip differential.

The battery is a 60kWh unit that operates on a 700V electrical system, and Everrati said the unit was designed to last longer on the racetrack. The cruising range is said to be over 125 miles, and it takes about 45 minutes to charge 20-80% with a fast charger.

Performance numbers include 0-60 mph acceleration numbers in less than 4 seconds and a top speed of about 125 mph.

To ensure optimal weight distribution and enhance vehicle dynamics, all elements of the powertrain, including batteries and drivelines, utilize mounting points in the existing chassis structure. This resulted in a 40:60 weight distribution back and forth. This is closer to the ideal 50:50 split than some of the original GT40s were competing with. The weight of the 2,910 lb curb is also comparable to some of the original GT40 race cars when fully refueled.

If necessary, certain components other than the powertrain have also been upgraded to meet the latest standards (for safety reasons) or to further enhance the durability of future vehicles.

For other models that Everrati can convert, 964 generation Porsche 911Land Rover Series IIA, and W113 generation Mercedes-Benz SL.
