Last production Ford GT40 under hammer.

The last Ford GT40 made fetched pounds 300,000 at auction when it went under the hammer at H&H's inaugural sale at Cheltenham.

Having been laid down in 1969 but not assembled until 1994 it was the last of the 100 production cars built.

A 1937 2.5-litre Jaguar SS100 went for pounds 139,750. A 1935 MG R-Type single-seater racecar fetched a similar amount and a former Jack Brabham 1968 BT31 Grand Prix car raised pounds 103,200, with a 1951 Peirce MG F2 single-seater fetching pounds 53,750.

Classic cars included a 1965 Lotus Elan S3 Coupe prototype at pounds 23,650, a 1978 Lotus Esprit JPS at pounds 19,350, a Honda NSX for pounds 18,275, an Aston Martin DB3 at pounds 36,550 and a MK1 Lotus Cortina that fetched pounds 16,125.

The next H&H sale is at the Pavilion Gardens, Buxton, on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 11/12.
