The best and rarest cars of RM Sotheby's London auction

Staff writer

If you want to get your hands on a truly exclusive car, there's no point heading to your local used car lot. Instead, you'll want to peruse the car shows, top-end showrooms and car auctions – and RM Sotheby's latest London auction had plenty of cars to drool over going under the hammer.

After all, why content yourself with a boring second-hand VW Golf when, for the same money you could net yourself a one-off De Tomaso Guara prototype? Of course you'll have to learn to make do without an roof, windscreen, functioning interior, engine, or even wheels... but it's much more interesting, and that's all that really counts. It sold for just £4,200.
