Ford’s desire to put a vehicle in Le Mans in the 1960s, along with Henry Ford II’s desire to anger Enzo Ferrari, led to the creation of the GT40. The GT40 you see here isn’t just any old GT40—if there is such a thing—it’s one of the rides that helped secure Ford its first 1-2-3 finish at Le Mans in 1966. More specifically, it’s the vehicle that finished third that year. Chassis number P/1016 is a legendary ride and it could be yours, though it will set you back a cool $9 million or so. A 7.0-liter V8 propels this golden rocket to race-worthy speeds, which is something your neighborhood is just not ready for. It will cross the RM Sotheby’s California auction block in August, so start checking the sofa cushions for change.
