Check Out The Top 5 Most Insane Cars Up For Auction This Month

Jump to Latest

Not sure what to blow an unreasonable amount of money on this summer? Maybe you’re looking for something to make your neighbours so jealous that they’ll move? If you’ve got a few million dollars you might have lying around, perhaps one of these rare and remarkable cars are up your alley.

They’re all cars that’re up for auction currently in May, courtesy of Silverstone Auctions’ May Sale , Bonhams and RM Sotheby’s . The list of wicked cars is long, so we’ve done the work for you, identifying the five best cars at auction this month.

1951 Ferrari 340 America Barchetta by Touring


Forget about saving the best for last – this is the cream of the crop. As the old adage goes, you get what you pay for, so you must be getting a sweet ride for a classic Ferrari estimated to go for €7.500.000 - €9.000.000.

It may approach those projections – or exceed them – considering how hot vintage Ferraris are when they’re on the market. This one is particularly rare; a matching numbers ’51 and one of just eight 340 Barchettas with a Touring body.

Take this Le Mans trouper to the Mille Miglia for the full old school experience.



2011 Aston Martin One-77


If there’s an Aston Martin up for grabs, it’s almost an auto-include in any ‘best of’ list.

What’s not to like? The Aston Martin is the ultimate fusion of class, style, and performance. And it doesn’t get much better than this ’11 One-77, estimated to go for €1.75 million - 2.25 million.

While it’s not the fastest or the most powerful luxury car Aston Martin has produced, it’s rare to find one on the market (this is Number 25 of only 77). You may not see one of these available for a long, long time.



1948 Tucker 48


The oldest car on the list, our homage to the throwback Tucker. This ’48 is the next-to-last Tucker officially built at the factory in Chicago and the last to be completed with an engine. This is serial #1049; #1050, the last Tucker produced, was sans engine, transmission, and rear fenders.

Projected to go in the range €1.350.000 - €1.850.000, it’s the only Trucker in Europe.



1973 Iso Grifo 5.8-liter Series II Coupé


This vintage car may not be as well known as the others on its list, but it matches up just as well all the same.

The Iso Grifo combines a bit of everythingBertone styling, Bizzarrini engineering, and Ford 351 Cleveland power. Bonham’s expects the ’73 to sell between €300,000 - 350,000.

Go on and find a more stylish and satisfying Gran Turismo, we dare you.



2008 Peugeot 908 HDi FAP Le Mans Prototype


Not only is owning an unreal old racecar a coupe, but this ’08 Peugeot is also a winner (almost). This specific model took home the 2nd overall LMP1 from the prestigious 2008 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Available via RM Sotheby’s, the Peugeot comes with some fine print: “Firing up and running this vehicle calls for specific equipment, third-party software licenses, and skills. The seller commits to providing the necessary technical support for a period of two years. This service will be provided at Peugeot Sport’s normal rates for technical support.”

Totally worth it. Look for the racer to go for €1.200.000 - €1.600.000.
