The 2017 Lamborghini LP 770-4 Centenario Roadster, estimate: $2,000,000 – $2,500,000, is an extremely rare supercar with only 20 examples ever built. Commemorating the 100th anniversary of Ferruccio Lamborghini’s birth, the Centenario made its debut in exciting fashion at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The Centenario, powered by a tuned version of the Aventador’s 6.5-liter V-12 engine, is capable of speeds up to 220 mph, and can accelerate to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds.

The Centenario included numerous leading-edge technological features, a newly designed rear-wheel steering system – a company first – and a twin-plane front air splitter to manage airflow and enhance stability at high speeds. This unique Lamborghini has traveled just 665 miles since new and is finished in distinctive two-tone Blue Cepheus and Blue Hera livery with silver pinstripe accents over a Nero Ade interior.

If it sells, this will be the first Centenario Roadster to change hands at public auction.

2019 McLaren Senna

Named in honor of McLaren’s legendary F1 World Championship driver Ayrton Senna, the 2019 McLaren Senna is a track-focused, road-going supercar that delivers brilliant performance and otherworldly visual presence. Shortly after its introduction at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the limited 500-car run sold out before production concluded, establishing it as one of the most sought-after and rare McLarens built. The Senna produces up to 1,763 pounds of aerodynamic downforce, is capable of sprinting to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds, and can reach a top speed of 211 mph, making it more than just an exquisite collector’s item but also a modern performance masterpiece.

This 2019 McLaren Senna (Estimate: $1,000,000 – $1,200,000), finished in MSO Defined Amethyst Black paint over a matching interior, features an additional 23 extra-cost options, which include the Full VCF (Visual Carbon Fiber) Gloss Body option to make this Senna one of the most expensive produced. It has only 88 miles on the clock.

At least two Sennas have sold at public auction for over a million dollar but bidding for others had fallen short of reserve prices.

2009 RUF CTR3

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original CTR model, RUF revealed the new CTR3, which featured an innovative chassis based on the contemporary Porsche 997 Turbo and the 987 Cayman. Considered to be the fundamental RUF supercar, this CTR3 is one of only 30 examples built, with this ultra-exotic model rarely seen and offered for sale in the US.

Adding to its exclusivity, this 2009 RUF CTR3 (Estimate: $800,000 – $1,000,000), chassis 006, is one of only two examples finished in vibrant Guards Red livery. The CTR3 is capable of accelerating from rest to 60 mph in just over three seconds, and a top speed in excess of 230 mph. Chassis 006 was custom ordered with the optional 754 hp for an owner in Chile, who also requested the unique Gunmetal-painted central locking wheels, 19″ at the front and 20″ at the rear.

2017 Ford GT

The Ford GT is synonymous with American racing victories. After years of design and developing the GT40, Ford finally achieved wins at Daytona and Sebring. Henry Ford II then knew the GT40 was ready for the famed European racing circuit. Behind the relentless development and testing by Le Mans-winning driver and legendary car builder Carroll Shelby and Ken Miles, the Ford GT40 dominated the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans, finishing 1-2-3 overall.

To memorialize the 50th anniversary of that monumental achievement in 1966, Ford secretly developed an entirely new car to take to Le Mans. The result was the 2017 Ford GT – a road-going version of Ford’s GTE race car that honors its ancestor while delivering new-age designs and technology capable of distinguishing itself from the supercar field. Powered by a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 EcoBoost engine, the GT produces 647 hp and 550 lbs./ft. of torque. It accelerates to 60 mph in less than three seconds and has a top speed of 216 mph. Carbon fiber seats are fixed to minimize cabin room, and steering and pedal controls adjust to provide outstanding driver comfort.

This 2017 Ford GT (Estimate: $800,000 – $1,000,000) was delivered in Ingot Silver with Dark Energy interior and has less than 15 miles on its odometer. This GT is ideal for any collector looking to relive the passion and glory days of Le Mans.

At least ten Ford GTs have sold for over a million dollar at public auction but bidding for many more stopped short of this mark. The first ones offered at public auction achieved generally above $1.5 million but the price trend has been lower at recent auctions.
