1960 Chevrolet CERV I
The most visually arresting car of the sale, no question. The CERV I’s history is just as eye-grabbing too: designed by Chevrolet for hillclimbing and to fit Indy 500 regulations, it proved a bad match for motorsport.
Instead it became a hugely influential engineering test bed, with the original Corvette Stingray’s independent suspension among its triumphs. It also looks fantastic, and has a 4.7-litre V8 engine cranking out around 350bhp. It’s likely to top £1 million.
