The first, by serial number, of several lightweight GT40s built for the J.W.A./Gulf team, this exceptional racing car was completed in 1968 and carries an incredible history from new. Finished in the Gulf team colors of Powder Blue with a Marigold stripe, it raced extensively throughout 1968 from Daytona to Le Mans, as well as the Le Mans trials at the hands of Jacky Ickx before it was sold to Solar Productions in 1970 and used in the making of Steve McQueen's Le Mans. A star attraction of this weekend's RM sale, the GT40 spurred a spirited bidding war in the room, eventually selling for a sensational $11,000,000 to a standing ovation from the crowd.
