We’ve been telling you about incredibly expensive cars sold at auction for a while now. James Bond’s Aston Martin, Churchill’s Daimler, the first Phantom III of America, or very rare Ferraris , these were all part of the list. So now we decided to create a top of the ten best cars sold at auction during 2010. Here they are.

1. 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider Competizione (#1603GT)

This is the only LWB California Spider to have a 262 horsepower Tipo 168 competition engine, an alloy body (not steel), an outside tank filler, disk brakes,  covered headlights and other innovative features. The car was sold for $7.26 million in August.

4. 1937 BMW 328 MM ‘Buegelfalte’

With a rich story behind it, this classic’s final price is still a mystery. The bidding price reached the impressive sum of $5.84 million, but the following day it sold by private contract for possibly a much higher sum.

5. 1938 Talbot-Lago T150 Competition Lago Speciale Teardrop Coupe

This one is a real beauty. Based on a race car, the coupe fetched some $4.62 million at an auction in August. We’d sure like to know who the proud new owner of the vehicle is.

8. 1956 Jaguar D-Type Sports Racer

Believe it or not, this baby managed to complete the 0 to 60 mph sprint in less than 5 seconds. 4.7 seconds to be more exact. No wonder it sold for $3.74 million at the beginning of the year.

The looks on this car is simply amazing. Very appreciated in its own time, the Mercedes even had the chance to ‘act’ next to Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn in Sylvia Scarlet. It found a new owner for $3.74 million.
