This car is as rare as they come. Built by Ghia on a Chrysler Imperial Chassis with a Hemi engine, it was created as a one-of-one concept car. Its first owner was King Mohammed V of Morocco.
Auction company Barrett-Jackson, which will be selling this car, sold an equally rare vintage concept car, the Oldsmobile L88, a few years ago for $3 million. The Desoto may not fetch quite that much -- Barrett-Jackson chief executive Craig Jackson notes that General Motors concept cars have a stronger following -- but a big number is expected.
Barrett-Jackson will offer this car, as well as these eight other extremely rare cars, on January 21st at its annual extravaganza in Scottsdale Arizona.
From sporty coupes you'll soon see on the highway, to wild concept cars featuring augmented reality, Japan's big car show has something for everybody.
