Chassis: CSX2300
Completed late in 1964, chassis CSX2300 only raced in the Tour de France that year. It was forced to retire after a gearbox mount failed. During the 1965 season, it was extensively raced by the Shelby team, scoring three third place finishes. At the end of the year, it was sold to Japan were it was raced with little success. In the 1970s none other than Carroll Shelby bought the car back. During the 2000 edition of RM's Monterey Auction, it changed hands for $4 million; twice the low estimate. Today it is owned by a German collector and historic racer. Chassis CSX2300 is seen in action here during the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed and the 2008 and 2011 Goodwood Revival meeting. In 2011, it was driven to victory in the coveted TT Celebration Race by Kenny Brack and Tom Kristensen despite a torrential downpour. (Source: Automobile Historique #5)
