Rarity. Both a unicorn from My Little Pony, and something that gets classic car enthusiasts in a bit of a froth. Take the Ferrari 250 Spyder. Chris Evans parted with £5.6m for one, simply because just 56 were built. OK, and because it's lip-bitingly beautiful.
Thing is, there are some slightly more ordinary cars that lay claim to being a far more unusual sight on Britain's roads than the oh-so-common 250. In fact, according to data provided by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, there are some cars of which just a single example remains on our damp little island.
