The headline attraction for RM Auctions' flagship Monterey sale, held August 15-16 during the world-famous Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance week, it will command the attention of the world's most discerning collectors, and comfortably achieve eight-figures, when it crosses the podium in California next month.
