1965 Shelby / De Tomaso P70 Race Car

In what should have been one of the best pairings in automotive history, Carroll Shelby and Alejandro de Tomaso collaborated on the P70, a car meant to race in the United States Road Racing Championship. Shelby and De Tomaso clashed almost from the beginning, and when Ford asked Shelby to oversee its GT40 Le Mans program, the P70 project was dead in the water. One prototype was created, and it was an absolute stunner, with a stressed-member Gurney-Weslake small-block V8, a chassis based on the De Tomaso Vallelunga, and bodywork by Peter Brock. De Tomaso would end up renaming the car the Ghia De Tomaso and debuting it at the 1965 Turin Auto Show. Being the only one made, it's beautiful lines, and the pedigree of Shelby and De Tomaso, the P70 will be getting a lot of attention when it goes up for auction.
