Shelby Cobra 'CSX 2000': The Shot Heard Round the World
It was an American Revolution, the likes of which had not been seen in almost 200 years! Carroll Shelby – the man, the larger-than-life Texan, and the battle-tested racing veteran – fired a shot across the bow of every sports car manufacturer in the world and, in doing so, set the car world on fire with the Cobra. This Cobra, the very same car RM Sotheby’s is honored to present at Monterey in a few short weeks, is the cornerstone on which Shelby changed the course of automotive history. It is the actual pen with which he signed his declaration of war and the idea upon which he built his company and revolutionized American racing—and the greater auto industry as a whole. After over 50 years of ownership and without ever leaving the care of its founding father, it is, without exception, the single most important and history-rewriting sports car ever offered at auction. Supremely original and with extraordinary history, RM Sotheby’s celebrates this national treasure at its Monterey auction in August. Video Credit: Porch House Pictures Video Location: SPEEDVEGAS





Jaguar D-Type: 24 Hours Of Le Mans Champion
The Jaguar D-type is the embodiment of what the marque stands for. Built for speed but with no compromise to beauty, the car managed to take victory at Le Mans no less than three years in a row. One of those very Le Mans-winning cars, the 1956 Ecurie Ecosse No. 4 car, will be offered in Monterey come August. Ecurie Ecosse was a private team with strong factory support from Jaguar, as there were no Works entry cars from the company in 1956. Thanks to the skilled driving of Ninian Sanderson and Ron Flockhart, as well as the incredible engineering put into this car, the inline-six–powered D-type finished a lap ahead of the Stirling Moss and Peter Collins Aston Martin. This D-type, XKD 501, is the best example of one of the most iconic Jaguars ever made and will surely be a highlight of Monterey Car Week. Video Credit: Porch House Pictures





The Ferrari 268 SP: Designed to Go Fast
The 1962 Ferrari 268 SP also featured an illustrious race career, including a run at Le Mans as a factory entry in 1962. As one of just five SP cars in existence and one of two equipped with this rare variant of the Ferrari V-8, it is as desirable as Ferraris come. This allure drew some of the greatest collectors to the car over the decades and included a long stay in the stable of Pierre Bardinon, the world’s foremost Ferrari collector, throughout his life. In recent years, the 268 SP has been meticulously restored and maintained, making appearances at select events, including the 2001 Cavallino Classic, where it won the coveted Platinum Award.
