" pictures: RM Auctions Question: Can the ugly actually be beautiful? Answer: Yes. When that ugly beauty is encapsulated in the Ferrari 340 Mexico. Four of these stunningly original cars were built for the Carrera PanAmericana race of 1952 - and the proof "
Jaguar E-Type Fixedhead Coupe
This stunning example of a Jaguar E- type 3.8 Fixedhead Coupe goes under the hammer soon at the ‘Silverstone’ auctions.
Its shiny-as-new look that belies its 52 years on the planet is partly due to the fact that it has spent the last six years in a humidified ‘Carcoon’.
Fair enough. But what’s the point of a thousand dollar cigar if it never leaves the humidor? Let’s hope the new owner takes this baby out and lights it up.
This is after all the car that Enzo Ferrari pronounced, “The most beautiful car ever made” when it appeared in 1961.
High, rare and worthy praise from the ‘Commendatore’
