Space racer set for $1million auction

This futuristic-looking Plymouth XNR may be 50 years old but is still expected to sell for a cool $1million (£635,000) at auction.

As the only one in existence, interest is expected to be high in the stunning supercar, designed and built in the early 1960s.

Inspired by jet aircraft, the refurbished racer, once owned by the Shah of Iran, will go under the hammer this weekend.

An original Plymouth XNR promotional brochure described the car as being 'functional, beautiful, unprecedented: the entire design is concentrated around the driver'.

It even survived war-torn Beirut in the 1980s before being returned to the US for a comprehensive restoration.

'When we received the XNR in 2008, the body shell was intact and, considering its history, in surprisingly good condition,' explained RM Restoration manager Mario van Raay.

'Many original parts accompanied the XNR, but our greatest challenge was the re-creation of the missing components.'

He added: 'Considering that this was a concept car, there was incredible attention to detail, right down to the fine leather interior, beautiful instrument cluster, and custom-built hubcaps. 'Each hubcap was comprised of 35 individual metal pieces. We had to completely scratch-build those hubcaps.

'Because of the extensive information and many high-quality photos available, we could not take any liberties when re-manufacturing all these components.' RM Auctions Monterey will oversee the sale in California this Saturday.
