The reason why this one's shape does not look familiar, is because this is the much more beautiful long tail version, only eight cars were built, each a little different. This particular car is from the Shelby America Collection, and is a 1967 Ford GT Mk IV J7 Version Group 6 Racer that was driven by Mario Andretti in the 1967 Le Mans race. These were called the J Body cars, first prototype bodies J1, J2 and J3 were built in 1966, J4 was the considered the first prototype racer, and then the final four cars J5, J6, J7 and J8 were prepared in for the 1967 Le Mans race at about a million dollars a piece.
