|In the late 1950s, Cadillac was the undisputed heavyweight champ in the full-sized luxury car market in North America. Cadillac used the nameplates "Eldorado Seville" and "Eldorado Biarritz" to distinguish between the hardtop and convertible. The 1959 models came near the end of the 3rd generation. The 1959 Cadillac is remembered for the largest tailfins ever and the dual bullet tail lights.|
|While the 1959 Eldorado was misunderstood in its day, collectors today recognize the car's combination of power, presence, and unbridled extravagance.|
|The Eldorado featured the ultimate engine of the late 50s, the Q-code 390-cu.in. V-8, topped by three two-barrel Rochester carburetors producing 345 hp.|
|This concours quality example carries an estimate of $260k to $ 300k|

|2010 Nissan GT-R. With a twin-turbo V-6, 3.8-liter engine boasting 485 hp, all-wheel drive, and automated manual paddle-shifted 6-speed transmission, the 2010 Nissan GT-R is a supercar in all but the price tag.|
0-60 comes in about 3.3 seconds onto a top speed of 193 mph. A low mileage example in good condition is a bargain around $ 40k.
|2001 Ferrari 456 GT. It's not exactly the most popular Ferrari ever built, nor is it the prettiest or fastest appreciating. But you might land one for $40k and it is still a decent supercar that can put most modern cars to shame.|
A bonus is that you can fit 4 humans inside, something not common from the car maker. Plus you can say you drive a Ferrari, which a body can't put a price on.

|A Ford dealer in Illinois is trying to unload a 13-year-old ‘new’ car for a whooping $449,900. This isn't a Taurus, it's a GT and originally stickered for $156,595. The car is regularly maintained, and with 4 miles on the clock it's possibly the lowest-mileage 2005 GT left in the world.|
The GT was inspired by Ford's Le Mans racers of the 1960s and built to celebrate the car maker's 100th anniversary. It’s powered by a 550 hp supercharged 5.4-liter V8. Ford sold 4038 of the supercars over the 2005 and 2006 model years.

|The Cadillac Series 62 is a series of cars produced by Cadillac from 1940 through 1964. The 1958 model was the 5th generation.|
It featured "shark" style fins and "dagmar" bumpers. The later term is derived from Dagmar, a well endowed early 1950s television personality known for her low-cut gowns and cleavage. She was amused by the tribute.
|The example being offered is unrestored with an original 11,750 miles. These cars are eagerly collected by Cadillac fans. |
Values range much more widely according to bodystyle than normal, but as usual convertibles are highest. A concours quality 1958 Cadillac Series 62 trends around $ 60k according to Hagerty.
|The Reventon debuted at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show and is one of Lamborghini’s rarest cars. It had a total production run of 21, and had an original asking price of $1.5m. It was named in the Lamborghini tradition after the fighting bull that killed famed bullfighter Felix Guzman in 1943.|
The car packs a 6.5L V-12 engine pushing 641 bhp through a paddle-shifted E-Gear 6-speed transmission.
|The Reventon accelerates to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds on the way to a 211 mph top speed.|
|Driven just 168 miles, this example was estimated at Mecum Monterey in August at $1.7 to $ 2m. The car failed to change hands.|

|Developed to celebrate Ferrari’s 40th anniversary, the F40 has a hallowed place in supercar history. At the time of its release in 1987, it was the fastest, most powerful, and priciest Ferrari production model. Slightly more than 1,300 examples left the gates of the Maranello factory until 1992 when the model was discontinued. Samir Sadikhov has digitally envisioned an F40 for the 21st century that builds upon Pininfarina’s design. His efforts are amazing.|

|A cult classic goes under the hammer next month.
The early example 1974 De Tomaso Pantera L (for “Lusso”, meaning luxury) is in 'pristine' condition according to RM Sotheby’s, with low mileage, original parts, and servicing carried out by the family that’s owned the car since 1978. There are 4,818 miles on the clock. |
The Pantera L is powered by a naturally aspirated 5.8-litre Ford Cleveland V8 engine, which produced 326bhp, sent through a 5-speed ZF manual transmission. The top speed was a claimed 159mph with 60mph in 5.5 seconds.
|This example is being offered at no reserve with no estimates. RM Sotheby’s sold a different Pantera L in a similar condition for $203,500 last year.|

|The car made $418,000 this spring at Mecum.|
|When production came to a close in 1970, just 351 examples had been built. Priced at over $7,000 in 1967 it was outrageously expensive.|
The car appears December 8th.
|Survivors are thought to number around 260. The 2000GT is one of the most coveted 1960s sports cars and most desirable Japanese car ever built.|

|Aston Martin and Zagato have been creating jaw-dropping designs for nearly six decades – beginning with the DB4 GT Zagato in 1961. The car is the production version of 2016 Villa d’Este concept car. It is one of 99 coupes produced; with just 15 in the U.S. All 99 examples share a 592-hp version of Aston Martin’s V-12 engine that delivers power to the rear wheels, through an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.|
