Mr. Carr bought it in 1955 from Lord Ridley and drove it a few times, but decided to park the car in the 1960's and never drove it again. It is probably because of this the car has such a low mileage, with only 26,284 km on its odometer.
Now this fantastic piece of automotive history will be sold in Bonhams' Retromobile sale in Paris on 7 February 2009. The estimated minimum price for it is 3 million euros, but this is a very conservative idea of price, given the exclusiveness and the state in which the car currently is.
