At this point, you’ve had the chance of bidding on pretty much every classic ride available to man. Whether it be the first-ever Shelby Cobra or a bevy of James Bond’s favorite rides, RM Sotheby’s has had you covered.

But to close out the year, the automotive auction house is gearing up for a momentous occasion in its history. Staging the largest automotive-themed private collection sale in European history, RM Sotheby’s is unveiling a catalog featuring 430 cars, 150 motorcycles, 60 boats, bicycles, bobsleds, and countless other pieces of automobilia at its “Duemila Route” (Italian for “2,000 wheels”) auction on Nov. 25–27 in Milan. Also, each lot will be offered up without reserve—meaning that when the hammer drops, it’s yours.

What’s in this garage’s worth of wonders? Some of the featured autos include a trio highly desirable Ferraris: a rare, matching-numbers 275 GTB/6C Alloy (see image above); a Plexiglas-headlight 365 GTB/4 Daytona; and an F40. Additionally, the wide-ranging auction will include a 2005 Maserati MC12, one of only 50 in existence that shows just 3,728 miles on its odometer; as well as a 1989 Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16V “Ufficiale,” a factory works rally car.

Says Augustin Sabatié-Garat, car specialist at RM Sotheby’s, of the haul:

“The sheer size of the collection means that enthusiasts will be spoiled with variety. If you’re in the market for a Porsche 911, you’re in luck, with some 60 different examples offered without reserve. If a Jaguar E-Type needs to land in your garage, the sale will feature a selection of 21 different examples. The list goes on and encompasses a tremendously diverse range of categories … it’s like an automotive Aladdin’s Cave.”
