FORD GT The original Ford GT took home a historic 1-2-3 victory in the 1966 24 hours of Le Mans. The mid-engine rear wheel drive supercar has a supercharged 5.4L V8 that packs 550 horsepower and 500 lb.-ft. of torque for a 205-mph top track speed rating. It's got huge Brembo brakes, a race-ready suspension, and 18" front/19" rear BBS painted aluminum wheels. The Ford GT is available in classic colors with painted racing stripes that look so good that import cars should have to pay fines for their lame vinyl stripes.
A 1968 Ford GT40 racing car went for $11 million, thus becoming the costliest car from America ever to be sold at an auction. The 1968 Ford GT40 Gulf/Mirage racer in blue with marigold stripes here, was initially estimated to be auctioned for $8 million at an auction to be held by RM Auctions at Monterey, but as is the case with good old cars, this one too exceeded expectations.
