Just about everything Ferrari has ever produced is destined to become a classic at some point. But that also means that their truly-rare vehicles sometimes get pushed into the upper echelon of the automotive world, becoming recognized more like pieces of art than machines. One such car, this 1958 Ferrari 250 GT Series I Cabriolet by Pininfarina is headed to the auction block.

Just so you’re aware of just how rare this car actually is, only 40 were ever built. Of those, only four were adorned with “the most desirable combination of coachwork details,” as seen on this particular example. Handbuilt in Pininfarina’s custom workshop, this car was originally produced for Prince Alessandro “Dado” Ruspoli of Rome — a legendary socialite that inspired Fellini’s film, La Dolce Vita. Eventually, it came to the United States, where it received a comprehensive restoration — garnering it a wide variety of accolades, including several First in Class awards at classic car shows around the country. Never before offered at auction, this iconic auto is expected to sell for upwards of $7,000,000.

Purchase: $7,000,000+
