Rare 1965 Ford GT40 Roadster Prototype is among the leading lots at RM Auctions’ Monterey sale. The vehicle, chassis GT/108, could set a world record at auction, scheduled on August 15–16 in California. The auction company hasn’t disclosed a pre-sale estimate, but they call it a multi-million-dollar car. As one of only a select group of prototypes built, and the first of only four GT40 roadsters, GT/108 holds an important place in history as a development/demonstrator vehicle for Ford and Shelby American. Completed by Ford Advanced Vehicles in March 1965, GT/108 was tested at Silverstone by John Whitmore and Dickie Atwood before shipment to Shelby American. It was driven by the likes of John Whitmore, Dickie Atwood, Ken Miles, and Carroll Shelby.
Other highlights of the sale include a one-of-a-kind 1931 Bentley 8-Litre Barker Sports Coupe Cabriolet, a 1938 SS 100 Jaguar 3½–Litre Roadster, a 1971 Lamborghini Miura SV, and a barn-find 1961 Aston Martin DB4.
