1965 Ford GT40

1965 Ford GT40 for auction.

$3 million… what could we do with a sum of money like that? Pay off all our bills? Take a trip around the world? How about buying a 1965 Ford GT40? You can do that if you have registered for the RM auction to be held in Arizona on January 18, 2013. This car is expected to sell for around a mere $3 million. But this is isn’t just any car.

The GT40 was developed to break the Ferrari winning streak at LeMans – after some major disagreements between Ford and Ferrari when merger talks broke down. What a way to exact some payback.

This street version has been detuned to a 335 horsepower 4.7 liter V-8 engine. The shocks have been softened and comfortable bucket seats installed. It’s a real beauty.

Are you drooling yet? Do you really want it? Have the spare cash? Then be sure to register for the auction. Check it out at http://www.rmauctions.com . If you happen to be the lucky bidder, may we have a ride in it? Pretty please?
