The world's oldest working car could present collectors with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity when it goes under the hammer at auction.

One of the highlights at the RM Auctions Hershey sale in Pennsylvania is this 1884 De Dion Bouton et Trepardoux Dos-a-Dos Steam Runabout - or Steamer for short - expected to sell for between $2,000,000 and $2,500,000.
