The Pinnacle Portfolio | By Rm Auctions

World renown classic car auction house RM Auctions, have presented the world’s most expensive car collection ever to be auctioned, appropriately named the "Pinnacle Portfolio”. Owned by an anonymous, absurdly rich, single individual, the impressive collection of 23 cars includes some of the greatest and most iconic European sports and racing cars of the 1950s and 1960s, plus some of the world’s most coveted modern super cars, making this an unprecedented rarity of automotive distinction. Amongst the collection are some rarities such as the first-production Bugatti Veyron, one of 20 Lamborghini Reventons ever made, and the penultimate road-going McLaren F1 ever built, and the last Ferrari Enzo (the previous owner being Pope John Paul II). After the jump are some of the incredible vehicles that will be offered in this auction, expected to net the owner over $65 million once each vehicle is individually sold.
