One of the most exciting things about Monterey Car Week isn't just the Concours d'Elegance, it's the millions and millions of dollars that trade hands for some of the most rare and collectable cars on the planet. As usual, the auction houses gathered a remarkable array of cars including the first ever Shelby Cobra (above), which went for a staggering $13.75 million dollars. 

Other highlights included a 1955 Jaguar D-Type that won the 1956 24 Hours of Le Mans, which brought in $21.7 million dollars, a 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider Competizione that went for $18.5 million, and a the first ever road-going Ford GT40 MKI to be delivered to America was won at the Mecum Auctions for $4.4 million dollars. All in all, hundreds of millions of dollars jumped from bank account to bank account in what was another exciting week in automotive auctions.
