The last Horch
In western Texas of all places, Audi finds the last Horch, and ships it
back to Germany for a 2-year restoration. Audi is the Latin translation of
Horch, and Audi was founded in 1910 by a Horch business partner who was
forced out. In 1932, Audi and Horch merged, along with DKW and Wanderer,
and the current day Audi logo (four rings) came about. Horch brand was
tainted by the fact that many of the Nazi and SS leaders drove Horch during
the war. The last remaining civilian models, built pre-1940, are rare
collector's gems. The last Horch was built in 1953 by hand, based on a
chassis manufactured in 1939.

Cars are one of the most common collector's items. People pay hundreds,
even millions of dollars so they can own some of the most sought after
cars. Most such collector's cars are only driven in special occasions and
those who own them don't use them on a daily basis, since they are very
expensive and rare, and spare parts are hard to come by, so you must take
good care of them. Vintage cars and super fast sports cars are some of the
most expensive vehicles in the world. Those classic, vintage cars, made
decades ago, can now be only bought at auctions, where some of the richest
people in the world try to outbid each other, with total amounts paid at
such auctions often going as high as $100 million. The following is a list
of the 10 most expensive cars ever sold.
1965 Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe -- $7.6 million
This is one of the few American-made cars to be sold at such a high price.
Only 6 units of the Shelby Cobra were ever made, which makes it a pretty
exclusive item to own. This Cobra is famous because of the fact that it won
the 24 Hours of Daytona race, as well as the 12 Hours of Sebring.
1931 Bugatti Royale Berline -- $8.9 million
This was one of the most elegant, luxurious cars at the time it was made.
It's 21 feet long, one of the longest cars ever built, and it's one of the
six units that were made by this Italian car maker. It was sold for
$8,900,000 at an auction in London in 1987.
1931 Duesenberg Model J Murphy-Bodied Coupe -- $10.34 million
The Dusesenberg Model J is a large, bulky car, reminiscent of a truck, and
it's powered by a 6.9-liter, straight-eight, twin-cam engine. It was sold
in California in 2011, for $10.3 million.
1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyder -- $10.9 million
Ferrari made 36 Ferrari GT California Spyders, and this one was sold in
2008, to British radio DJ Chris Evans. Famous Hollywood actor James Coburn
used to own it. There is a mighty 3.0-liter V12 engine under the hood of
this California Spyder. It was the most expensive car at the time it was
auctioned off in 2008.
1968 Ford GT40 -- $11 million
This is the most expensive American car ever to be sold. It owes its
popularity to the fact that it was used in a lot of racing scenes in the
movie Le Mans, with Steve McQueen in the leading role. Steve McQueen
actually owned this car, so it's no wonder why a lot of people were willing
to pay so much money to have a car that once belonged to this acting
1936 Mercedes 540K -- $11.7 million
The Mercedes 540K Roadster was sold at an auction in Monterrey, California
in 2012. It's a very good-looking car, and it's the most expensive
Mercedes-Benz. This two-seat cabriolet was first unveiled at the 1936 Paris
Auto Show, and has a straight-eight cylinder engine, with a 4-speed manual
1931 Bugatti Royale Kellner Coupe -- $14.9 million
This Kellner Coupe was sold in 1987 for $14.9 million, and a lot of people
expect for it to be sold at a much higher price pretty soon. It has a
12.7-liter engine, that was originally meant to be installed on an
aircraft. Since it was pretty expensive for people's standards at the time,
Bugatti weren't able to sell a lot of Kellner Coupes, and only three of the
6 that were made, were sold.
1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa -- $16.4 million
The 250 Testa Rossa is one of the fastest Ferraris, and it had a very rich
racing history, winning a couple of times at Le Mans, as well as Sebring.
Ferrari made 34 units of this 250 Testa Rossa. Its name means "red head" in
Italian, and it got the name because of the red valve covers.
1963 Ferrari 250 GTO -- $19.4 million
The 250 GTO has a 3.0-liter, V12 engine, producing 300 horsepower. It features a
Berlinetta body style, and it owes its great exterior looks to the
magnificent Italian designer Sergio Scaglietti. Same as the 250 Testa
Rossa, the 250 GTO has an excellent racing history, and it was auctioned
off in 2010 for $19.4 million.
1936 Bugatti Type 57C Atlantic -- $43.7 million (2010)
This grand tourer is the most expensive car sold to date. It was sold in
2010 for a whopping $43.7 million, and of the three units that were made,
only two have survived so far. It's a four-wheel-drive vehicle, providing
and it has a two-seat coupe body style.

The one and only Bugatti Aerolithe
David Grainger, co-founder of Bradford, Ontario's Guild of Automotive
Restorers, wasn't sure what to do with Bugatti chassis #57104 when he first
got his hands on it—until he heard about the legendary Aerolithe.
The Jean Bugatti-designed "Electron Coupe" -- so named because it was
bodied in a magnesium alloy called "Electron" -- mysteriously disappeared
shortly after its 1935 debut at the Paris Salon.
That mystique made it the perfect candidate for an exacting five-year-long
recreation performed using only period-correct materials and methods.
Thanks to the Guild of Automotive Restorers for access to this incredible

front, side and back windows
In deteriorated condition and ready for a complete full restoration

Body no. 356
Series 60. 452-cid, 185-hp OHV V-16 engine, three-speed manual
transmission, coil spring independent front suspension, live rear axle with
semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel vacuum-assisted mechanical drum
brakes. Wheelbase: 154-inches.
At first glance, this car looks like an armored limousine, with inch-thick
glass and carefully-drilled gun ports. On closer examination, however, it
gets more and more curious.
The Cadillac build records call it "Fltwd Limo," body style 6275, number
356, and indicate it was ordered by the Chicago branch on February 21,
1935. Painted Thessalon Green, it had black leather in the front
compartment and Wiese brown vogue weave broadcloth in the rear. Fitted with
six wire wheels, two of them in fender wells, it had a radio in the rear
compartment and a flexible steering wheel. There is a further notation
about "Special Fleetwood Body Order 310," the details of which are lost to
The online Cadillac Data Base, a meticulous compilation by historian Yann
Saunders, gives production figures for Style 6275 as nine in 1934 and just
seven in 1935, exclusive of those given suffixes as sedans, formal
limousines or limousines with increased headroom. The bodies were the same
as the flat-windshield limousine Style 6075, whose Fisher body tags they
