By -


Are you tired of silly public auctions where high-quality, ultra-rare cars can be bid on by any riff-raff that shows up with a few million dollars? It’s almost Monterey week, so we’re about to see more of them. But if you’re looking for a private sale, without the hassle of an auction, we have some rare eye candy for you to drool over.

The Finest Auctions are offering up a few super-special cars for you to add to your collection, each with some pretty impressive history.
