There are few things in this world as achingly beautiful as an immaculately-cared-for vintage roadster.

And tomorrow Sotheby’s is rolling a few dozen of them into Manhattan for an auction called The Art of the Automobile. If you’re in town and have ever felt the urge to see a Mercedes with gullwing doors, the race car Michael Schumacher piloted to victory in Monaco or the Jaguar Enzo Ferrari deemed the most beautiful car ever made (or have a couple million bucks lying around to buy any of them), this is your time.

Luckily, we’ve gone through the lots to find the most spectacular options.
