This is the TG500 based on the Messerschmitt Kabinenroller micro-car body. What sets this TG500 apart from the others is its impeccable condition, and is considered to be the best example around. Which is why it was imported to the USA from Germany, and was part of a famous collection in North Carolina.

Valued at $250,000 - $325,000 - Link

2. 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham

Considered as one of the most elegant American cars ever created, this classic Cadillac was recently restored with concours level detail. With less than 60,000 miles on the odometer, this one will fetch some serious money.

Valued at $150,000 - $175,000 - Link

3. 1962 Volkswagen Double Cab

With the introduction of the transporter and the micro-bus in the US, VW quickly realized that Americans have developed a love for pickups. This Double Cab example from 1962 has been restored while in the hands of a private collector in Florida. While it's no 23-window bus, the popularity of VW transporters cannot be understated seeing just how many of them are exported from the US.

Expected to go north of $70,000 with no reserve - Link

4. Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series

The SL65 Black Series is the definition of a modern classic. With a limited run of just 350 cars, a top speed north of 200mph, and the exclusive Black Series badge - this is no ordinary SL. This is one of Mercedes cars which are considered street legal race cars.

Expected to sell for over $300,000 with no reserve - Link

5. 1983 Porsche Factory 930 Turbo Slantnose

It seems like no auction run list is complete without a Turbo Porsche. But what makes this one special is its factory Slantnose option created through Porsche's Special Wishes project, of which less than 50 are believed to have been made. This was before the Slantnose variant was available to the general public as an option.

Valued at $95,000 - $110,000 - Link
