You’re looking at a 1949 Talbot Lago T26 Grand Sport SWB par Saoutchik, a French sportscar that’s among the most rare cars in the world. It was found in a barn in Paris in 2014, and just sold at auction for an incredible $1.9 million.

What makes it so valuable? Back in 1949, only four of these beauties were produced, and no one has seen one since.

What did it look like back then?
