As far as GT40, this one has such a significant racing history its is considerably different to others.
An American build high performance endurance-racing car developed during 1964-1969.
As a matter of fact, this particular car has been recognised as one of the top five among the GT40s.
It was one of the original of small block GT40s run by the golf wire team, very successfully.
Furthermore, it served a very interesting time in motorsport and gained a lot of significance as an American race-car.
At Pebble Beach Auction in July 2012, the Ford GT40 was sold for $11 million, making it the most expensive American car ever sold.
Not only a beautiful car, but also the whopping price tag has a lot to do with this car’s unique history.
Hollywood’s King of Cool, Steve McQueen, was filming 1971 classic, Le Mans.
They needed camera cars that could keep up with the Ferrari 512 and Porsche 917, the GT40 was the car for the job and it did it wonderfully.
In order for the car to mount a camera to shoot, the car had to be modified and reconfigured.
This included removing the roof with windscreens only a few inches high and inoperable doors.
After filming Le Mans, the car was then entirely restored back to its original body configuration.
Everything was replaced and put back just as it had come before modification.
All the original bodywork was kept and contained and even included with the sale of the car at auction.
Any car that Steve McQueen has ever been involved with, all have this awe that makes the car extra special.
