This 1965 Ford GT40 is one of just five built and one of only two still in existence today.

This jaw-dropping mean machine is known as GT/109 and is equipped with a 289cc V8 from the Shelby Cobra. The same is paired with a 5-speed ZF transmission. Roadster variant of the Ford GT40 Model to race at Le Mans entered in 1965 by Ford of France and driven by Maurice Trintignant and Guy Ligier.

This insane drive somehow ended up in the hands of the founder of Mecum Auctions, Dana Mecum. They commissioned a Concours-level restoration to bring the car back to its original Le Mans specification. The car is now in unique condition and comes equipped with the Real 289 V-8 it had when Jeffries took ownership.

This 1965 Roadster is set to be auctioned next month at its Indianapolis event. Mecum estimates that this GT40 might be out in anywhere from $ 7.5 to $10 million. If this babe is an old-legend for you, Mclaren also announced limited-edition McLaren 720S Le Mans.
