Other featured vehicles up for bid in this auction are:
- 2010 Ferrari 599 GTZ Zagato Nibbio Spyder: This Ferrari is Zagato’s vision of how 599GTB should look and is one of only nine produced. With just 10,477 km, this vehicle has not been driven since it was sent to Zagato to be converted to a Nibbio.
- 2017 Pagani Zonda Riviera: This vehicle is based on a Zonda F and was recreated by the factory as a one-off Riviera. It is KSA registered with less than 900 km and is believed to be the only one in the world.
- 2010 Bugatti Veyron Nocturne: The Nocturne was one of three special editions created to celebrate 100 years of Bugatti. This vehicle is one of only five Veyrons built exclusively for the Middle Eastern market and has only 1,500 km from new.
