A former race-car driver's stunning, 96-car collection will be auctioned off online through RM Sotheby's from June 3 through June 11.
The stash, which carries an estimated value of up to $10 million, was amassed over decades by Marcel Petitjean, who competed in events around Europe during the 1960s and 1970s. According to RM Sotheby's, Petitjean spent the past 50 years collecting classics with the intention of establishing his own motor museum.
To that end, Petitjean snatched up a wide variety of rare and sought-after cars dating from the 1950s all the way through the 1990s. Some of the most notable cars include a 1968 Lamborghini Miura, a 1955 Aston Martin DB2, a 1988 Porsche 911 Turbo, and a 1958 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster that RM Sotheby's estimates will rake in up to $1.2 million at auction.
