The cars originate from a single owner collection

The vehicle is expected to sell for around $647,460-863,280. That's testament to its status as one of the most iconic racers of the 1950s.

Other highlights include a 1921 Rolls-Royce 40/50hp Silver Ghost double phaeton and a Lamborghini Espada.

All the cars come from an important single owner collection and will be among the highlights of the May 21 Spa Classic Sale at the Francorchamps racetrack in Belgium.
