Ford GT40 Roadster

El Ford GT40 no necesita presentación. Pocos coches hay tan famosos como el “Ferrari Killer” americano y el motivo de su existencia. Y no es la primera vez que Ferrari provoca la aparición bien de un modelo, o bien de una firma entera. Pero ésto es harina de otro costal.

Del Ford GT40 se hicieron unas cien unidades con la única intención de arrebartale el título de las 24 Horas de Le Mans a Ferrari tras el desplante de Enzo, patrón de la marca, que se echó para atrás cuando el constructor americano quiso comprar su empresa, al enterarse que no podría mantener el control de la división de carreras, su mayor pasión.

De esos cien coches, hubo cinco que destacaban por encima de todos por su carrocería roadster. Actualmente, solo se conoce el paradero de cuatro de aquellos Ford GT40 Roadster, y solo uno se mantiene en estado original, justo el que podéis ver en las imágenes y que saldrá a subasta en el concurso de elegancia de Pebble Beach el próximo mes de agosto por RM Auctions.

Se trata del chasis “GT/108”, el primer Ford GT40 Roadster y el séptimo Ford GT40 construido. Pero no termina aquí la importancia e interés de esta unidad, ya que tanto Henry Ford II como Carroll Shleby emplearon este coche durante pruebas de desarrollo y Shelby llevó de copiloto a Henry Ford II a lo largo de las instalaciones de Shelby American, en Los Ángeles, durante una junta directiva en los años 60.

Con el frontal modificado, utilizado por los GT40 de carreras en 1.965 y la trasera un poco más baja que tenían todos los GT40 Roadster, se vendió a manos privadas a través de Kar Kraft en el 65 y ha salido en multitud de eventos como Pebble Beach o Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. Lleva dos décadas en la misma colección privada.

A lo largo de los últimos años, se ha subastado otra unidad, también desde RM Auctions, que terminó con un nuevo dueño por nada menos que siete millones de dolares y se espera que este supere con creces esa cantidad llegando muy cerca de las ocho cifras.
