Fair warning: over the next few pages you are likely to lose the power of speech/drool uncontrollably onto your keyboard/place a monetary value on family members. This is because Bonhams is hosting quite possibly the greatest car auction... in the world.
Now, we know we've declared a few times in the past that a particular auction might be the greatest in the history of the world. But really, this one probably will be. Not least because it could contain the future Most Expensive Car On The Planet.
See, last month, Bonhams revealed details of a particular car that would appear at this event, held in California this week. That car was a Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta, and it's likely to become the most expensive car ever sold at auction.
Experts reckon that this 1962 Ferrari could fetch as much as £35 million, far eclipsing the Mercedes W196 sold last year.
Which of course, piqued our interest. So we went digging around the other cars Bonhams has corralled together for its Quail auction. There are many, many good things included within, which made it a problem for us highlighting the very best.
But here, we have attempted to do such a thing. Click through. Prepare to want all of it.
