  1. It’s a great shame to sell these cars to private collectors. Such prototypes should stay in manufacturers possession, not locket away from our eyes in someone’s private garage.

  2. The 540K and the GT40 Works Prototype are fantastic. I think putting them in private hands increases their value and prestige. These days collectors enjoy public showings. They won’t completely disappear.
