With only 6 existing in the world, Ferrari's 342 are a prime example of exclusivity. Even more outrageous is the one of the six with a body by Italian automobile coachbuilder Vignale. The original owners of this ultra rare vehicle included Enzo Ferrari, the man responsible for the company's namesake, and King Leopold of Belgium.

However it's now being auctioned off to car enthusiasts as one of the first vehicles of it's kind ever made and one of three coachbuilt cabriolets that were sold to Swiss owner, Odofranco “Otto” Wild. Finding it's way into the hands of collectors, the car has only seen 338 kilometres (210 miles) since it's 2007 restoration. It’s estimated to fetch up to $3 million USD on RM Sotheby’s in an upcoming auction this week. Check out some pics of it above.
