1958 Lister-Jaguar 'Knobbly' // Lot F75 // Mecum Monterey 2017
Built as the successor to the legendary D-Type Jaguar, this car is the second of just nine original Knobbly Jaguars produced.
It was campaigned by the Briggs Cunningham Team during 1958-1959-1960, and earned one of the most impressive racing resumes of any 1950s sports racing car.
A slew of victories, numerous awards and an extensive documentation are all part of this car's rich history. For the full story, click the link: https://www.mecum.com/lots/CA0817-300007/1958-lister-jaguar-knobbly/
As one of only two built and the only example completed to U.S. market specification, this 2010 Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita from the Ash Crest Collection is one of the most exclusive cars on Earth, even in the rarified world of elite supercars. Its previous owner, professional boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, paid $4.8 million for the car. It was worth every penny for any number of reasons, the most striking one being its incredible “Diamond Weave” carbon-fiber finish that literally sparkles like millions of fine diamonds when exposed to the sun’s light. Its very creation is symbolic of Koenigsegg’s deep commitment to creating the world’s greatest automobiles.
The SLR 722S Roadster is two great automobiles in one: an exhilarating, leading-edge performer that borders on full-race GT machine, and a world-class grand tourer of impeccable manners. The fact that only 24 were produced for the U.S. market ensures the new owner of this 2009 example from the Gatsby Exotics Collection will enjoy arguably the most exclusive road-going bounty of the Mercedes-Benz and McLaren partnership.
