Peter Brock's finest up for auction, as is a $35m Ferrari

MAY is going to be a bumper month for car auctions both here and overseas.

Shannon's Sydney autumn auction on May 30 sees the late racing great Peter Brock's 1984 Holden VK Commodore 'SS' Group 3 Sedan go under the hammer, this being the nine-time Bathurst winner's personal car while he ran HDT Special Vehicles.

While this is expected to sell for between $80-100,000, the HDT car that Brock wanted to build - the 1984 Opel Monza Coupe he developed as the prototype of a future HDT Special Vehicle - is also up for auction and expected to go for even more, estimated at $100-120,000.

For those with substantially more coin, why not head to Monte Carlo for May 14 and place your bids at the Sotheby's auction before taking in the Monaco Historic Grand Prix?

Race cars include the 1985 Rally Monte Carlo-winning Peugeot 205 T16 Group B with an upper estimate of 800,000 Euros.
