Review

What do you feel like watching on a lazy Sunday teatime? Try joining Ant Anstead to drool over ridiculously pretty and expensive cars. Not new ones but curvaceous classics, like the Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Lungo Spider (the “Alfa two-nine” to its fans) a pre-war supercar that looks like a 1930s batmobile.

It’s one of the works of art on wheels sought out by the “million dollar car hunters” of auction house RM Sotheby’s: Anstead follows them around the world as they strike deals, then we get to see what the cars fetch as auctions unfold. The starting bid for that Alfa? Ten million dollars. And it goes a lot higher.

Summary

Ant Anstead joins a team tracking down rare cars for auction house RM Sotheby's, and follows them on a trip to California to track the sale of the very first Shelby Cobra.
