Back in May, a 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa had sold at auction for $12 million, setting a new world record and becoming the de facto most expensive car in the world.

Now, that record is quite possibly about to be shattered by a bespoke, one-of-a-kind 1934 Rolls-Royce Phantom II 40/50 HP Continental “All-Weather Convertible” custom made for an Indian Maharaja.

The incredible car (above), known as the “Star of India”, is being sold off by famed Rolls-Royce collector Hans-Günther Zach, who’s liquidating his private museum dedicated to the marque in Germany.

It’s expected to fetch as much as €10 million or $14 million, beating the Ferrari by a wide margin. The Star is just one of classic and collectible 24 Rolls-Royces Zach is accepting bids for until Sept. 15th.
