...If I remember correctly, these Superformance fellas are the rights holder for GT40's name and design. So in a sense this is a continuation model of the original GT40s from the 60s, isn't it?

It is basically a continuation. Apparently, Superformance's GT40 replicas have a high degree of part interchangeability with the originals.

@BJahalt88 Very nice, but in the game it makes sense to put in the original car, rather than a modern copy and give it the range of paint schemes from 1965 and 1966. The originals were raced at Le Mans unsuccessfully in 1965, before coming good in 1966 with a 1, 2, 3 finish. I would desperately love to have the original in the game even though if it was realistically modeled the handling would be quite unwieldy.
