We’re bringing out the big guns as the day approaches for RM Auctions’ bang-up Battersea Evolution sale in London on October 31:

A 1959 Battersea Evolution LWB Berlinetta “Tour de France” by Carrozzeria Scaglietti.

A true ’50s alloy-bodied Ferrari Berlinetta with an usual competition-spec engine, it’s been aptly described as a brute in gentleman’s clothing.

As one of the most collectable series-built Ferraris of all time, the 250 GT long-wheelbase Berlinettas built from 1956 to 1959 command a suitably impressive price.

We assume you’re still impressed by a car worth $3.9 million…
