Behold: the 1960 Ferrari 250 GT Series II Coupe – the first mass-produced Ferrari (previously, the cars were all custom made for wealthy buyers).
This model – extremely well preserved with its original red leather interior and exterior paint – can be yours for (most likely) upward of €640,000.
Behold: the 1981 Lamborghini Countach LP400 S Coupe – the unrivalled ground-scraping, ultrafuturistic supercar of its day, adorning bedroom walls since it first appeared in 1971.
During its 16 years in production, the Countach had many facelifts but this variant (of which only 105 were ever made) is considered to be the finest.
Fully restored with just 35,000km on the clock and currently taking bids at Sothebys.
If the 250GT is the most desirable car in Ferrari’s illustrious history, then the 250GT SWB (short wheelbase) is its most desirable variant.
This all-original 250 GT SWB Berlinetta has full documentation dating back to the day it left the factory in 1962, making it one of the rarest and – potentially – most valuable Ferraris on the market.
Aside from this 1962 250 GTO.
Currently accepting bids.
Behold the Ferrari 250 GTO – arguably the world’s most collectible (and priciest) car.
Only 36 were ever made and this 1962 model (which won nine of the ten races it competed in that year) was the third.
A pristine, dandelion yellow 1997 McLaren F1 – with a mere 239km on the clock from factory testing, its the lowest milage car of its type in existence.
Recently sold at auction (for an undisclosed price, most likely north of 13 million) having been untouched, undriven and unregistered for two decades.
A 1978 V8 Aston Martin Vantage: sold that year to a customer in British Columbia, later bought by an avid collector and upgraded in 2005 from its original 5.4l (170mph) engine configuration to a 6.0l, 500bhp powerplant.
Currently accepting bids for auction next month by Sotheby’s at Monterey.
A 1964 Citroën DS 19 Decapotable – its shark-like, low-drag chassis (designed by coachbuilder Henri Chapron) underpinned by Citroën’s (cutting edge at the time) self levelling hydro-pneumatic suspension, power assisted brakes, clutch and steering.
