In 1965, Ford made six prototypes of the GT40 – all open-roofed. Five were subsequently converted into hard tops but this one – the first of the six –  once driven by Formula One legend Jim Clark, was left in its original configuration.

The unique roadster can be yours, for an undisclosed but presumably gigantic sum of money.

    Gorgeous, but I’m a bit worried at the need for a large fire extinguisher so close to hand…

    Prototype you say?

    back in 2012 one of the production cars sold for $11M (eleven million)

    this one given its provenance if it sells could be as much as $50M

    possibly the dearest yoke you’ve had on BS to date I think?

      White Dacia Duster. They are slowly taking over, and they aren’t even pretty.

    The colour scheme on the car are the official racing colours of the USA. A fire extinguisher is mandatory on all classic racing cars. Most racing drivers racing on European circuits see to prefer right hand drive as almost all the tracks run mostly clockwise.
