Supercars which "stir the imagination" are amongst the latest additions to the Bonhams Quail Lodge sale.

The highly-anticipated auction, which takes place as part of the famous Pebble Beach Car Week in California, will offer 115 cars spanning more than a century of automotive history.

First up is a 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari, regarded by many as the ultimate sportscar and described as "history in the making".

Just 499 examples of this V12 hybrid were produced, with only 120 delivered new to the U.S (to a very select list of prestigious clients).

The example offered at Bonhams is presented in timeless Rosso Corsa paint scheme, comes with just 230 miles on the clock, and a top speed of 217mph. As the first example of the iconic vehicle to appear at public auction, the LaFerrari is expected to realize in the region of $3.6 - $4.2 million.

Ferrari supercars of an earlier vintage will include a 1985 Ferrari 288 GTO, one of the most famous and sought after Ferraris of the late 20th century, estimated at $1.8 - $2.2-million, and a 1989 Ferrari F40 estimated at $1 - $1.2 million.

Away from prancing horses, the auction will also offer remarkable rides from McLaren, Lamborghini and Porsche.

Described as "arguably the ultimate supercar of today and possibly tomorrow", the McLaren P1 is a masterstroke of engineering which combines a hybrid engine with Formula 1 technology. Number 90 of just 375 examples built comes with less than 1,200 miles on the clock, and an estimate of $1.9 - $2.1 million.

The rarest supercar on offer is a 2008 Lamborghini Reventón, one of only 20 examples ever produced. Capable of a top speed of 221 mph, and named after a famous Spanish fighting bull, the Reventón was the most expensive Lamborghini road car ever produced and comes with an estimate of $1.2 - $1.6 million.

And last, but certainly not least of the latest super additions, is a superb 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, valued at $600,000 - $750,000.

The Bonhams Quail Lodge sale takes place at the Quail Lodge & Golf Club in Carmel Valley, California on August 19.
