Auction Block: Ford Mini GT40 Go-Kart

Dec 19, 2018

Category: Rides

Our inner-child is going bonkers for this pint-size version of the two-time Le Mans-winning legend. The Ford Mini GT40 go-kart is the work of automotive aficionado Francis Mortarini who built a reputation for collecting and restoring scaled-down cars for kids.

Mortarini and his company Société de Construction des Automobiles Francis (S.C.A.F.) built the Ford-sanctioned kid-size Mini GT40 with flawless precision and an accurate Gulf Powder Blue livery. It even went on to race in the 24 Minutes du Mans, which was a children’s race held on a mini circuit before the main event in 1968 where the real deal dominated Le Mans. It’s been upgraded with a new Briggs & Stratton single-cylinder engine capable of 9 horsepower. The Mini GT40 also has an electric start, front and rear electric lights, a hand-stitched leather steering wheel, and a kill switch. You might even be able to get into the impressive go-kart thanks to a removable roof.
