Ferrari has a wonderful tradition of building limited-series sports cars that are blindingly fast and exquisitely designed—but that can be driven by mere mortals on everyday streets.

A general search for a McLaren vehicle on eBay reveals a couple dozen MP4-12C supercars. The MP4 (or simply 12C) is the follow-up to the legendary McLaren F1. It’s hard to know precisely how many 12C cars were produced between 2011 and 2014, but probably a few thousand.

The answer can be found in the car’s incredible story. The seller, in fact, calls it “the most significant historic Mustang in the world.”
The aluminum body of the first Porsche production car, introduced in 1950, was pounded into shape by hand. And that’s exactly how 35-year-old Chris Runge, a self-described “Porsche enthusiast and auto obsession-ist” produces his automotive creations, like the hand-built aluminum Frankfurt Flyer now listed on eBay.
In the early 1960s, a brand new Rolls-Royce cost about $8,000. Five decades later, when fully restored to its original grandeur, this 1962 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II is listed on eBay for a cool half-mil. Why is it fetching such a price?
