There's no mistaking the so-called Pinnacle Portfolio, a private collection secured by RM Sotheby's for sale at this year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance auction in Monterey, Calif., will fetch a pretty penny. And the auction house isn't exaggerating when they refer to the lot as a "superlative roster of the world's rarest and most important sports and super cars." C'mon, it's got the late Pope John Paul II's Ferrari Enzo - the last ever made!

The collection boasts some 30 vehicles, each in their own way iconic, though RM Sotheby’s did not offer any guesses as to how much they think the assemblage could pull. Additional highlights include a street-able 1998 McLaren F1, 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing Alloy, 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider, 1964 Ferrari 250 LM, and a pair of Bugatti Veyron 16.4. More from the lot will be announced in coming weeks.

Because of the size of the Pinnacle Portfolio, RM Sotheby's Monterey sale has been extended to three days, with the collection headlining on August 13. For more information and a detailed list of early highlights, as well as bulletins on further reveals, cruise on over to www.rmsothebys.com.

There is no denying Seiji Ookawara's Nissan Silvia is a head-turner. It's extremely low, it's extremely wide, and has a ludicrous amount of negative camber that screams for attention.
