A member of the world's 1% has accumulated an unfathomably expensive collection of roughly 30 post-World War II cars, dubbed the "Pinnacle Portfolio" by RM Sotheby's auction house. According to Reuters, said collector could get over $65 million once each vehicle is individually auctioned at this August's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Shelby Myers of RM Sotheby's sums up the absurdity and anonymity of the collection, saying, "While many of the world’s most impressive collections were established in the public eye of the car-collecting world, The Pinnacle Portfolio was assembled with a clandestine, surgical precision unlike any other that has come to market. Its almost obsessive focus on perfection, rarity, and the superlative, irrespective of price, makes it the most significant and valuable private collection of motor cars ever presented at auction."
While only a fraction of the collection has been revealed, some notable additions include the first production Bugatti Veyron, the penultimate road-going McLaren F1 ever built, and the last Ferrari Enzo — number 400, which was a gift to Pope John Paul II from former Ferrari chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo.
