While the grand classics of the pre-war era and post-war sports and racing cars are indeed the staples of today’s collector-car market, modern exotic cars and rare, special-edition ‘supercars’ have made strong inroads during recent years. Ranging from the cars that were once celebrated on bedroom posters, art prints, or stereo ads to their blindingly fast newer counterparts, these vehicles mark high-water-marks of styling and race-bred technical prowess.

Included within our diverse lineup of some of today’s most desirable collector cars to be offered at Pacific Grove on Thursday, August 17th are a number of top-notch modern ‘supercars’ and exotics.
