But will the super-wealthy turn up to bid? Can these classics hit their multi-million pound estimates or will they fail to reach their reserve price?

World's Most Expensive Cars - Grand tourer - Netflix
A grand tourer (Italian: gran turismo) (GT) is a performance and luxury automobile capable of high speed and long-distance driving. The most common format is a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive two-door coupé with either a two-seat or a 2+2 arrangement. The term derives from the Italian language phrase gran turismo which became popular in the English language from the 1950s, evolving from fast touring cars and streamlined closed sports cars during the 1930s.
