Rare Aston Martins, Ferraris, Lamborghinis and more will make an impressive showing at Russo and Steele's sale during Monterey Classic Car Week in California on August 12–14. The top-riced lot is a 1963 Shelby Cobra CSX2009, specially built for the FIA/SCCA racing circuit with many victories to its credit from 1962–1971, estimated at $900,000–$1.2 million – but it's not our favorite car on offer. That would be this stunning 1968 Aston Martin DB6, originally owned by Volkswagen AG President Heinrich Nordhoff, estimated at $230,000–$310,000. Also on offer in the alluring auction: another Shelby Cobra, this one from 1965, a late production Mk 1 in impeccable condition, estimated at $450,000–$550,000; a beautiful 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC, one of the most original models in existence, estimated at $225,000–$290,000; a handsome 1972 Ferrari 365 GTC/4, estimated at $100,000–$125,000; and a stunning early production concours-winning 1966 Lamborghini 350GT, estimated at $350,000–$425,000.
