The 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa which captured the record debuted at the 1957 Nurburgring 1000kms but it is not the car's racing history which makes it the most valuable car ever to be publicly sold, but the fact this is the very first Testa Rossa - the original prototype and rolling testbed for the 250 TR (Testa Rossa) line, one of the most successful sports racing cars ever. That's the hammer falling in the pic, with various auction fees making up the difference between the US$14.9 million and the "record" US$16.4 million.

This is a car of legend. It is the CAR in which Umberto Maglioli famously averaged 222 km/h (138 mph) for the final 365 km (227 mile) stage of the infamous Carrera Panamericana to ensure Ferrari won the 1953 World Sports Car Championship - an all-time record for a public road stage that will undoubtedly stand forever, at least in the bizarre circumstance of having the public using the same roads while the race is in progress.

The 1937 Bugatti Type 57SC Atalante is an undisputed masterpiece of automotive art, designed by Jean Bugatti with a competition-derived surbaisse chassis and a factory supercharger. Just two supercharged Type 57SC cars were built new, but most 57S owners wanted the additional power afforded by the blower. Therefore, most of the original Type 57S cars returned to Molsheim for the installation of a supercharger, pushing output from 175 hp (130 kW) to 200 hp (150 kW) and 120 mph (190 km/h). This 1937 Bugatti Type 57SC Atalante is an extremely authentic example with original chassis, engine and coachwork and features outstanding, unbroken provenance including participation in the prestigious inaugural International Bugatti Meeting in 1958.

Mercedes-Benz built 406 of its powerful, massive 540K models and only 26 of them were the sleek, luxurious, imposing Special Roadsters such as this 1937 model. One of the most striking variations on the Special Roadster theme, it is the high-door, long-tail version with exposed spare wheels and tyres built into the rear deck. The car was delivered new through Mercedes-Benz UK in 1937 to Sir John Chubb, of the lock family. After the war, the ownership of this car changed hands several times, crossing the Atlantic twice and along the way picking up an Antique Automobile Club of America National First Place award in 1987 and a first in class award at Pebble Beach in 1988. It became part of the Bernie Ecclestone Collection in 1995 and was sold by RM/Sothebys for US$8,252,201 in October, 2007.

The low-slung torpedo roadster body by Carrosserie J. Saoutchik, of Paris, is a perfect example of coachbuilding of the late 1920s. It showcases some of the more exotic materials available to the coachbuilders of the day. The hides used to create the lizard skin interior were supplied by Alpina, a company that sourced products from the French colonies in Southeast Asia. The beautiful trim wood, known as Purpleheart, was also sourced out of the French colonies in South America. Image: Michael Furman/RM Auctions

Looks can be deceiving. This 1955 Ferrari 410S is a race car of the highest order. It was originally built as a 1955 Ferrari factory entry for the infamous Carrera Panamericana race, but the 1955 Le Mans tragedy saw the Mexican event cancelled and the car, a close relative of the 1954 Le Mans-winning 375 Plus with a 4.9-liter Superamerica engine, was finished with one-off Scaglietti Berlinetta coachwork specifically for Ferrari SEFAC board member Michel Paul-Cavallier. An award winner at the 2009 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. This car has a wonderful history.

This 1965 Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe is the second most expensive "movie car" in history, though to be fair, it's a car with an impeccable race history and world championship in its own right that just happened to have also been used in a film – Howard Hawkes cult classic movie Redline 7000 (1965). The price this car fetched at auction can almost entirely be attributed to its racing provenance.

At Bertone, this chassis was graced with a one-off body that was designed by an individual who would become a hugely influential automotive designer, Giorgetto Giugiaro. At just 21-years-old, Giugiaro gave 1739GT a variety of unique exterior and interior options that would further distinguish it from other SWB models that were produced at the time. Regardless of his youth, it was evident that Giugiaro had an eye for design, and the public’s stunned reaction at the first glimpse of the car at the 1960 Geneva Salon clearly helped improve his stature in the industry. Giugiaro would go on to work at Ghia before founding his own firm, Italdesign Giugiaro. Image: Michael Furman and RM/Sothebys

Commissioned in person by a close friend of Enzo Ferrari, the pair walked to the Competition Department, where Enzo pointed to the first chassis in a line of just three. Enzo said that even though this specific chassis was earmarked as a Works team car, it would instead be immediately assigned to his friend's account. Bertone was commissioned to build the custom body and the job was assigned to a 21-year-old named Giorgetto Giugiaro.

It's surprising this car didn't sell for a lot more than the US$6,600,000 it fetched at Pebble Beach in 2012. It is the original Ferrari 250 GT California Spider prototype, a car which launched one of the most iconic series of sports cars in history. As the prototype California Spider, it has many unique one-off features that never carried over into any of the production models, but it was nonetheless, the car which appeared in the brochures and publicity of the soon-to-be-released California in early 1958.

After being a highly desirable race-bred car in its youth, this 1956 Ferrari 250 GT LWB Berlinetta 'Tour de France' was purchased by Walt Disney Studios for use in the 1966 film "The Love Bug".

Redemption eventually came, and the story can be read in great detail on the official RM Auctions page. One of the most expensive movie cars ever to have sold at auction.

The 1937 Bugatti Type 57SC Atalante is an undisputed masterpiece of automotive art, designed by Jean Bugatti with a competition-derived surbaisse chassis and a factory supercharger. Just two supercharged Type 57SC cars were built new, but most 57S owners wanted the additional power afforded by the blower. Therefore, most of the original Type 57S cars returned to Molsheim for the installation of a supercharger, pushing output from 175 hp (130 kW) to 200 hp (150 kW) and 120 mph (190 km/h). This 1937 Bugatti Type 57SC Atalante is an extremely authentic example with original chassis, engine and coachwork and features outstanding, unbroken provenance including participation in the prestigious inaugural International Bugatti Meeting in 1958. Auctioned by Gooding & Co for US$8,745,000 at Pebble Beach in 2013

When a buyer paid GBP2,530,000 (US$4,058,120) for a 1997 McLaren F1 at RM Auctions' Automobiles of London sale in October, 2008, there were those who thought the price paid was one of those irrational prices which auctions regularly throw up, and there were those who thought it indicative that the modern day supercar had been recognised. The latter is now known to be true, and already that investment is proving to be spectacularly successful.

The McLaren F1 XP, along with three of the five production models, is finished in the historic Papaya orange paintwork, in homage to the early Bruce McLaren racing cars.In 1999, XP1 LM joined the standard McLaren F1 road car in the record books, when Andy Wallace set a new 0-100-0mph standard of 11.5 seconds at RAF Alconbury. Acceleration was such that, from a standstill, 60mph was reached in less than 4 seconds, 100mph within 7 seconds, on to a top speed of 225mph.While this is lower than the ‘standard’ McLaren F1 due to the GTR-derived rear wing which increases drag, the improved levels of downforce give considerable advantage to cornering performance."The Sultan of Brunei reportedly purchased two of the five LMs, with special black paint. Don't expect any F1 LMs at market any time soon, but if they did appear, they'd be at the top of this list.

In 1981, McLaren became the first team in Formula 1 to use a carbon fibre chassis and in 1984 it used those techniques to create the most successful Formula 1 car in history - the McLaren MP4/4. Having completed just a handful of laps in the new 1988 MP4/4 at the beginning of 1984, Alain Prost reportedly told Team Principle Ron Dennis that he knew the car would win the World Championship. The car won 15 of 16 races in the hands of Prost and Ayrton Senna. Witness the domination of Mercedes-Benz in 2014 and realise the team has not won three races. McLaren lost just one race with the MP4/4
