Clark Gable bought this 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing new at Mercedes-Benz of Hollywood for $7,295. It sold in 2013 at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale for $2.035 million. That's a nice return on investment.
The French automaker Delahaye built some of the most unforgettable custom motorcars of the 20th century. One such example is this 1949 Delahaye Type 175 Saoutchik Coupe de Ville built for the 1949 Paris Salon Show. Simply stunning, it sold for $1.21 million at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale in 2013.

Hard to believe, but this brilliant 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona has less than 10,000 original miles, one reason it commanded a sale price of $495,000 last year at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale.
The Porsche 959 was the original supercar from the German automaker, with all-wheel drive and a turbocharged flat-six engine. This is one of only four surviving prototypes. It sold for $440,000 at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale last year.

The Italian Job
No one has style quite like Ferrari, even for four-seat sports cars. At Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas in 2013, $176,000 bought a new owner a gorgeous 1968 Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 with only 39,000 original miles.

Red Hot & Ready
A modern icon, the Ferrari 430 F1 Spider goes from zero to 62 miles per hour in just 4 seconds, with a top speed of 196 mph. And the red over tan colors are perfect. At Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach last year, this sold for $167,200.
The 1990 Lamborghini LM 002 was ahead of its time when it came to high-end SUVs. Nicknamed the 'Rambo Lambo,' this one was $158,000 new and then was painted in Dupont ChromaLusion paint that changed colors. It brought $82,500 at Barrett-Jackson in 2010.
