Live from the saleroom: RM sells Ex-Gulf GT40 for $10m, a new World Record

RM created a World Record for a GT40 sold at auction when a successful bidder purchased the ex-Gulf 1968 GT40/Mirage for a colossal $10m.

The pale blue/orange car was the very first car in Gulf colours to win a race: Jacky Ickx/Dick Thompson scored a superb victory at Spa in 1967. It was also used as a camera car for the film 'Le Mans'.
