The original car was built in late 1964, chassis CSX2300 only raced in the Tour de France that year. This Replica is Painted in Tour de France Original colors and livery. It retired due to a gearbox mount failure. In the 1965 season, CSX2300 raced at Daytona, Sebring, and Nurburgring. It was extensively raced by the team Shelby, scoring three 3rd place finishes. Towards the end of that year, it was sold to Japan where it was raced with little success. In the 1970s Carroll Shelby bought the car back. In 2000 at RM's Monterey Auction, it sold for $4 million. 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 torrential rain.
