We’ve enticed you over the last year with a number of stunning Ferraris—like this 250 GTO with an asking price of $56.8 million or this F40 once owned by Eric Clapton.

But this 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Speciale could make automotive history, says Bloomberg, if and when it’s offered at auction. It’s estimated the sales price could eclipse the $100 million mark.

Its late owner was car collector and millionaire swap-meet magnate Preston Henn, who amassed an incredible collection of high-end autos over the years—including a LaFerrari Aperta that he sued Ferrari to be able to acquire, per Autoweek.

Per Bloomberg, normal, cherry-colored versions of the GTB sell in the $2 million range. But what makes this version so rare is that it was built as a race car (hence, the “C Speciale” stamping). It also won at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in ’65, making for a priceless backstory.

A similar version sold at an RM Sotheby’s auction back in 2014 for $29.4 million.

Take a look at what $100 million spinning around in circles looks like below.
