5 collector cars to put in your garage this week
Red or dead?
You either had to be a very important person or write a large cheque to persuade Ferrari to paint your new F50 anything other than red. This silver example has, amazingly, remained in the same fortunate family ownership from new and is accompanied by its entire service history, the original Ferrari luggage set, and even the pair of Tod’s racing shoes that were sized to the original owner.
Keke knows better
Trust the flamboyant Finn and former Formula 1 World Champion Keke Rosberg to have ordered his Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole in brilliant white with matching white leather.

The ‘Old Green Girl’, as it was affectionately known by its first Australian owner, starred in the magazine in 2016, when we took it to London for a spot of sightseeing. One of the most original Series 1s in the world, this well-travelled Landy is ready for the next chapter of its life to be written.
