“Nov. 29 (Bloomberg) — One of only two 1939 Auto-Union D – Type race cars believed to be in existence will be sold by Christie’s International Plc in Paris next year, with the auctioneers predicting the highest price ever achieved for a car at auction.
…The auctioneer expects the car to fetch about 6 million pounds ($11.7 million), exceeding the 5.5 million pounds paid for a 1931 Bugatti Type 41 Royale Sports Coupe in November 1987.”
