I always wanted a Ford GT 40

 

i got the Matt Damon Le Mans ‘66 film for Xmas to tide me over.

Hello Hamish

                      Take your pick of one of these some proper and some fakes!

Even when John has turned it over the photo isn't the best, but my guess is a Ferrari 166 MM Barchetta, 1948 - 52, but the distinctive swage line along the car isn't very clear in the photo.

May be the slightly later spyder  version with the front wing vents (think 2 were the usual) and the rear wing/ tail vents. 
 

 

 

and yes any “classic” style GT40  would be just fine thanks.

The driver (?) of the 40 on the right, standing while others fettle, has the same stance as Carl Swanson by Kastner's Candy Box Vitesse!

Expand the pic above to see what I mean.

Problem with these so-called "super cars" is that they are far too wide for our roads, as could be seen in the video.

A TR, being so much narrower, can squeeze through quite easily and is likely to get to the pub earlier.
