The Shah returned to Saudi Arabia again

It was literally marked for the crusher, until the late owner’s family moved it inside. Instead, this utterly unique 5000 GT will come to auction at RM Sotheby’s Monterey sale, where it’s projected to sell for $500,000–$750,000. Carrozzeria Touring developed the superleggera tubing and aluminum body of the two-seater coupé. The second car, also a Shah of Persia by Touring, was displayed at Salone dell’automobile di Torino 1959.
