Not Your Grandma's Buick

It's an old legend: a long-hidden classic car discovered. This one actually happened, and it's a biggie.

Relatives of reclusive Newcastle doctor Harold Carr found the 1937 Type 57S Atalante in a garage after he died. It was originally owned by Earl Howe - first president of the British Racing Drivers' Club. Just 17 were built.

It is expected to sell for at least £3m ($4.4 million)

Update: Forgotten Bugatti sells for £2.9m
