Auto Union on the Block

Contrary to popular belief, Christies Auction house will attempt to set the record price for an automobile sold shortly. For some strange reason I’ve been telling everybody for years that Nick Mason of Pink Floyd paid $12m for a Ferrari 250 GTO during the feeding frenzy of the late 1980’s when car collectors were snapping up anything with 4 wheels. Apparently this is an urban legend…

Making the much over-hyped Barrett Jackson auctioneers look like small fry, Christie’s will sell one of two remaining Auto Union D-Type Grand Prix cars next year expecting to fetch a record $11.7 million…
