GT40P/1072


GT40P/1072 was the last road car built by the factory and was also the only MkI to feature MkIII side windows.

Although built to road car specification, 1072 was regularly used in hill-climbing events by its first owner, John Cussins. It is perhaps best known in the UK as the car owned by DJ Noel Edmonds.

After spending many years based in the UK, 1072 is now in the US and has been totally restored. Unfortunately, it has lost its MkIII side windows and now features the standard MkI perspex windows.
