There is a seriously rich person in the US that has decided to put a fleet of rare supercars up for auction in a bid to raise around $US65 million (£42 million).

Sotheby’s revealed that an anonymous car collector is putting their “Pinnacle Portfolio,” a collection of more than 20 post-World War Two cars, up for sale at California’s Monterey 2015 Classic Car Auctions on August 13.

The portfolio includes cars from the 1950s and 60s, Porsches, Ferraris, a 1993 Jaguar XJ220, and Bugatti Veyrons.

It even includes an Enzo gifted to the late Pope John Paul II. The car apparently has an inscription by former Ferrari Chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo under the hood.

According to Autoblog and other car enthusiast websites, Ferrari’s 400th Enzo was sold by Pope John Paul II in 2005 to “an unnamed American rich dude for $US1.1 million (£717 million), twice the going rate.

One of the other highlights of the collection is the 1998 orange, three-seater F1 “LM-Specification” car, which is set to rake in around $US12 million (£7.8 million).

The Pinnacle Portfolio also includes the first and last Bugatti Veyrons in the latest production run.
