Superformance has always prided themselves in providing exceptional re-creations of exceptional classics. This Superformance Mk III's sublime body utilizes high quality, hand-laminated fiberglass to create a rock-solid drop-top that provides a first-rate driving experience. Those stiffly reinforced panels display the smooth surfaces and typically tight gaps we've come to expect from top tier builds. And those excellent bones stretch sunny Portofino Blue 2-stage across a hoopless profile. Tilt t...his roadster's lightweight hood and you'll find a Roush Performance 427 IR small block that twists 561 dyno-proven horsepower into 541 lb./ft. of tire-killing torque! Behind that mill, a fresh Ford AOD 4-speed twists torque to a tough Dana third member, which spins a ZF limited-slip differential around fresh, highway-friendly gears. That drivetrain hangs in a Superformance heavy wall Jig-welded frame, which rides a fully independent suspension. Turns come courtesy of manual rack-and-pinion steering. Solid stops are provided by power-assisted Wilwood calipers, which clamp four vented discs. And torque meets the tarmac through Shelby/American Racing Pin Drive Wheels, which twist massive BF Goodrich g-Force Rivals. The owner of this Mk III wanted a well-rounded classic that, in addition to carving curves, could double as a comfortable cruiser. Nowhere is that more evident than in the car's custom, diamond-stitched cockpit. Sliding seats wrap 2-point safety harnesses around body-matched stitching and color-keyed piping. In front of those seats, a leather-wrapped dash hangs a locking glovebox beside a clean combination of Smiths and Lucas gauges. Beneath those gauges, a leather-wrapped tunnel hosts a booted shifter. And in front of the driver, a wood-rimmed steering wheel twists polished spokes around a requisite Shelby emblem.
