1971 Hemi Cuda

You have until January 19 to save up $4.5 million. On that day, and probably for at least that much money, RM Auctions will turn over the keys to a 1971 Hemi 'Cuda Convertible. The bidding will take place at the auction house's annual Vintage Motor Cars in Phoenix, Arizona.

This particular 'Cuda is chassis #BS27R1B269588, has only 282 miles on it, a shaker hood and is one of only 11 ever built. And in case that's not rare enough for you, it is one of only three built with the 4-speed manual.

As a public service, we'd like to warn you that once our 1982 Citation sells, we'll have a $745 head start on our opening bid. So don't go getting your hopes up. Another 1971 'Cuda with 8,300 miles on it sold last year for $4.1 million, so maybe we should sell our rare 1988 Cimarron, too.
