RM's Villa Erba auction won't be until the end of May, but it's well worth looking forward to considering the lineup as it stands at the moment. If I could only pick one (I can't, but a guy can dream, right?) it would most likely be this Fiat 8V with a body by Vignale.

 Fun fact for you- the Fiat 8Vs get their name from the fact that they have V8 engines, but Fiat being so delightfully... erm... Fiat assumed that Ford owned the rights to the term 'V8' so elected to go with 8V, somehow thinking it would slip by Ford's lawyers.

There's no estimate on the Vignale yet but you should probably be thinking more in the "bespoke, coachbuilt Italian sports car from the 50s" price range and less "2002 Punto that I had to scrap because no one would have paid money for it".
