A team from French auction house Artcurial Motorcars recently discovered a treasure trove of dozens of “barn find” condition cars wearing badges from the likes of Ferrari and Maserati as well as prewar greats like Delahaye and Bugatti.

"One car that will likely be a highlight at auction is the Ferrari 250 SWB California Spider. Found under a pile of papers, it is one of just 37 built, and was thought lost by marque car experts. The last SWB California Spider to sell at auction went for $15 million. Artcurial estimates that their example will do €9.5 million to €12 million ($11.7 million to $14.7 million).
