Museum’s Awesome Collection Of Rare Classics Heads To Auction

Alfa Romeo 8C

A selection of a museum’s awe-inspiring collection of classic cars is to be put up for sale at auction in California, giving buyers an unmissable opportunity to own some of the world’s rarest cars.

The selection at the Riverside museum, Southern California, is heading for auction after the owner, Doug Magnon, passed away.

The cars will be heading for the Auctions America event in Santa Monica, where they will go under the hammer this month.

The museum specialises in Maseratis, and will be auctioning off an extensive collection of the breathtaking Italian sports machines.

The museum will also be auctioning rare Jaguars and Ferraris.

Exciting Collection Of Rarities

The first part of the auction will feature a Jaguar XJ220, a rare Ford GT, as well as an exciting Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione (pictured).

But the rarest cars that will be auctioned off are being saved for the second half of the vent, which takes place in Monterey during Pebble Beach week.

Cars being auctioned include a 2005 Maserati MC12, a 1971 Maserati Quattroporte that was owned by the King of Spain, as well as a so-far unidentified 1969 Indianapolis racer.

But perhaps the most famous car heading to auction is Dan Gurney’s Eagle Indy racer.

The first event will take place on June 25-26, with the second half taking place on August 19-20.
