An extremely rare prototype Ford GT 40 Roadster will be auctioned by RM Sotheby's in mid-August, according to CarScoops.

Ford built only 12 GT40 prototypes. Of these, seven were with a hardtop, and 5 were roadsters. The model in question is the first Roadster built and has the chassis number GT/108. It was built in March 1965 at the Ford Advanced Vehicles factory in Slough (UK) and is equipped with a 4.7-liter Cobra engine.

After testing in Silverstone, the model was exported to Shelby and displayed in a California store. Subsequently, the car was exhibited at numerous events. Over the past few decades, this model has passed through the garages of numerous collectors, and in 1993 it was completely restored mechanically.
After another mechanical update in 2003, the model was also subjected to various events, including the Pebble Beach Concours d'elegance, Quail Motorsports Gathering, or Amelia Island Concours d'elegance. Estimates made before the auction showed that this 1965 Ford GT40 Roadster prototype could sell for up to $ 9 million.http://fiatforum.lv/http://fiatforum.lv/
