Uber-lux auction house Christie's displayed four vehicles in New York this week for its upcoming Exceptional Motor Cars auction in August. The most expensive is an extremely rare 1928 Mercedes-Benz Typ S Torpedo Roadster (pictured). Its estimated purchase price ranges between $3 to $4 million. The next is a "Team Ferrari" 1952 Ferrari 225 Sport Spyder. The racer has competed at the Gran Premio di Bari, Imola, and the Gran Premio Ciudad de Buenos Aires and is estimated to fetch between $1.2 and $1.5 millon at the upcoming auction.

The last two vehicles showcased were a 1967 Ferrari Michelotti Coupe and 1972 Lamborghini Miura SV. Estimated to go between $300,000 to $400,000 (Ferrari) and $375,000 to $425,000 (Lamborghini), they are practically steals price-wise.

The auction will be held next month on August 17th at the Monterey Jet Center in Monterey, California as part of the Monterey Historic race meeting and Pebble Beach Concourse d'Elegance events. 50 cars will be on auction. With the admission price of $50 for two alone, we cash-strapped bloggers will just report from the virtual sidelines.
