1954 Jaguar D-Type Works

Some cars have a history. Some cars have a history that is so important they could be considered national treasures. OKV2 was the lead car for the factory Jaguar team at the 1954 Le Mans and was considered a heavy favorite to win — which it didn’t do. The car was driven by Sir Stirling Moss and went back to the factory to become the development car for next year’s race – which Jaguar won, along with the ’56 and ’57 races. A technical achievement and one of the most important cars in motoring history, D-Type OKV2 is expected to bring over $12 million at auction.

Unique Retro Car – 1937 BMW 328 Mille Miglia Buegelfalte

This extraordinarily beautiful retro car BMW 328 roadster was built before WWII in an amount slightly less than 500 copies. The model that you could see at photos was developed by BMW designer Wilhelm Mayrhofer specifically to race in the 1940 Mille Miglia. After WWII, this BMW 328 roadster was taken to Russia as a compensation where until recently was stored. Despite the advanced age the car remained in excellent condition. On May 1, 2010 auction house RM Auctions in Monaco will expose this unique retro car at auction. Instead Buegelfalte BMW Museum will exhibit an exact copy, and original one will get the lucky guy who will buy it in Monaco.
