It’s not everyday you get the chance to buy your own Formula 1 car and this one comes with quite a provenance. Built as the third of five cars for the 1991 season, it was raced by both Alain Prost and Jean Alesi with its greatest result being a third place podium finish at the Monaco Grand Prix.

1935 Auburn Eight Supercharged Speedster

The American equivalent of a classic Bugatti or Bentley, the 1935 Auburn speedster was designed by Gordon Buehrig and considered quite audacious at the time thanks to its curvaceous lines and elegant rear design which earned it the nickname ‘the boattail’. This particular model is considered one of the finest Auburn speedsters in the world and has been thoroughly authenticated and cared for by her current owners.
