Some of the treasures on hand include meticulously restored early Porsches, including a 1951 356 Split Window, and a pair of Shelby Cobras with unique bodies—one made completely of copper and the other fully polished in bronze.
The video also shows a 1961 Alfa Romeo Zagato that was raced extensively throughout Europe 1960, Series 1 Ferrari 250 GT Pininfarina, 1964 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, 1960 Mercedes-Benz 300SL and 1965 Jaguar E-Type. Let’s not forget newer cars like a 1995 Porsche 993 Carrera RS (with Club Sport 2 aero kit) and 2000 BMW M5.
Most of these precious automobiles will soon be auctioned or have just been sold. All of them are in mint condition or something close to that.
Their combined value is hard to determine, but we’re talking about millions of dollars, for sure. Which one do you find the most appealing?
