Selling Price: $4,400,000
Auction: Mecum, Monterey
The Ford GT40 went down in history when it beat the legendary Ferraris 330 P3 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966. Although this GT40 did not race, it was the first road car delivered in North America. Built at the Ford Advanced Vehicles factory in Slough, Buckinghamshire, England, this GT40 was briefly used as a test and evaluation car on Ford’s test track. Shortly after, it served as Ford North America’s official Promotional GT40. Before its sale this year, the same family had owned the car for 40 years and it only shows 11,000 miles on the odometer.
