RM Auctions anticipates between $3.5 and $4 million dollars will change hands for ownership of this historical racecar. Just 20 examples were built, and this racer is in original condition–which should attract plenty of potential buyers. Rare automobile auctions entice larger audiences today because word is spread like wildfire when they break out into the light for the first time in decades!

Chassis 118 and millions of dollars will change hands in Monterey. Originally owned by Dutch racer Hans Davids, this car was painted in his favored Dutch Racing Orange. The current owner acquired it in 1992 and painted it white with blue stripes. It has since been restored to its original hues for the auction.
