Some of the worlds most recognisable Supercars will be racing out the doors at Shannons Melbourne Winter Classic Auction on Monday May 31.

The Shannons team believe the reserves on all lots will ensure all sell at super prices.

A 1989 Ferrari Testarossa coupe offers a rare but striking combination of metallic blue with blue leather interior.

Featuring a gutsy 4.9 litre flat 12-cylinder engine that has the ability to accelerate from 0-100km/h in around 5.0 seconds, the Testarossa is expected to sell in the $110,000-$130,000 range.

Also on offer is the 2000 model Porsche 911 GT3 ‘Touring’ coupe.

With an odometer showing 64,000km, the GT3 is powered by a 265kW 3.6 litre version of the 996-series model’s new water-cooled flat six engine and comes with a complete service history.

For around the price of a new Boxer, the GT3 is a steal at $100,000-$115,000.

Other legendary supercars on auction include Lamborghini’s first full four-seater Supercar, a 1977 Espada Series III Coupe that is expected to sell around the $55,000-$65,000 range.

However it is the local supercar and not the european that could prove to be the big winner at the May 31 sale.

One of Australia’s most desired muscle cars, Shannons expects the 1971 Ford XY Falcon GT HO Phase 3 to sell in the $260,000-$320,000 range.
