A pair of highly coveted Ford GT40s will be heading to the Monterey RM Auctions event on August 17-18th, 2012, including the famous camera car used in Steve McQueen’s Le Mans film.

There’s no denying that the GT40 is one of the world’s most respected and legendary race vehicles ever created, but the 1968 Ford GT40 Gulf/Mirage Lightweight Racing Car may be one of the world’s most famous vehicles ever. Raced extensively throughout 1968, the GT40 was then sold to Solar Productions in 1970 before utilized as a camera car in Le Mans. Since then, the car has gone on to several collectors and now it could be yours.

The other GT40 that will be auctioned off is a 1967 Mk I and is an authentic example of the first generation GT40 model. One of only 31 GT40 production road cars, it boasts a pearl white exterior contrasted by blue racing stripes. Amazingly there is only 4,749 miles on the odometer making it one of the world’s lowest mileage GT40s, if not the lowest. The 1967 GT40 has an estimated price of $2,300,000 to $2,700,000.
