“Superformance MKIII R Godzilla – we’ve fallen in love!”

Words are unnecessary.

Superformance is an American automotive company known for developing some of the best replicas we can find. They are also in charge of designing high-performance components, a company that has become famous for restomods and replicas of the magnificent Shelby Cobra. His latest jewel is as impressive as the previous ones, or perhaps something more. And it is that the Superformance MKIII R Godzilla is so impressive that it is difficult to assimilate it.

Founded in 1996, the company has extensive experience working with the Shelby Cobra. One of their great developments is the MKIII-R, a car that they showed not long ago and that they have updated. The key is its 7.3-liter Godzilla V8, a block used by the most powerful pick-ups in the range of the American manufacturer Ford and that we now see in one of the most beloved classic sports cars in history.

435 CV of power and 644 Nm of maximum torque have been extracted from the 7.3-liter V8 , a rather impressive energy but that still has room for improvement. V’s Performance has assisted in the swap work, a new engine that is linked to a Tremec five-speed manual transmission that carries power directly to the rear wheels. To the whole, the company has added Bilstein coilovers and Wilwood brakes.

The aesthetic work also has great relevance. The Hailbrand rims stand out, which show off in a complete aerodynamic kit . It does not lack detail, because in Superformance they know that they have to be good but not stop looking like them. In the cabin we find a beautiful black leather upholstery with two-color stitching, an interior that mixes advanced systems with the classic design of the model. Apparently the total price of the Superformance MKIII R Godzilla is 134,950 dollars, about 115,000 euros to change. Would you take it home? We have no doubts, and it is that with its weight of less than 900 kg. fun is guaranteed.
