Potentially one particular of the most costly cars in Farley’s extensive Ford-centric assortment is his ’66 GT40. What superior way to leading off his selection than with the auto that fueled the feud in the 2019 Hollywood blockbuster “Ford v Ferrari,” suitable? Of class, its real-life racing heritage and historic significance only make the Ford GT40 Mk1 all the far more beneficial, with a single of the 3 Ferrari-beating automobiles even likely for a ludicrous $9 to 12 million, according to Top rated Gear. One more instance of a historically considerable GT40 Mirage — which was applied as a digital camera auto in the 1971 movie “Le Mans” — was marketed just as large with a amazing $11 million value tag (through Hemmings).
Nonetheless, that would not necessarily mean normal ’66 Ford GT40 Mk1s are any much less precious than their famous Le Mans counterparts. A entirely restored GT40 Mk1, which experienced already switched possession several occasions, was offered at an auction for $1.65 million. It was then marketed once more for an even higher price of above $3 million. It can be really ironic offered how this iconic product reportedly started out out promoting relatively badly. At present, they’re additional akin to bars of gold, and one’s just sitting at Farley’s garage, or fairly, currently being raced furiously on a monitor. Perfectly, employing a race car the way it is really meant to be made use of could be more exhilarating than selling it for a substantial price. Following all, successful races with a ’66 GT40 Mk1 can be just as priceless as the motor vehicle alone.
