    Might sports cars headed for auction and new Cyan Racing TCR concept ...

    Leading auctioneer RM Sotheby's have announced the headlining lot for their upcoming Petersen Automotive Museum Sale in the form of this mighty Ferrari 290 MM. One of just four built, this car actually started life as a four-cylinder engined 860 Monza before being update by the factory to 290 MM specification by shoe-horning a massive V12 into the engine compartment. Among the later modifications were the addition of Testa Rossa inspired pontoon-fenders, and in this guise, the 290 MM was driven to two wins at Nassau by Sir Stirling Moss. Now restored to its original 290 MM specification '0628' is estimated to sell for close to $22 million in the early December sale.
    Rival Bonhams, meanwhile, also announced an ex-Stirling Moss car for their Scottsdale Auction in January. In this case, it concerns the ex-Briggs Cunningham Lister Costin Jaguar that Moss shared with Ivor Bueb in the 1959 Sebring 12 Hours. Regularly raced by its most recent owners, it was restored to its unique configuration in the mid-2010s with a glass dome on the engine cover and winglets on the roll-over bar. When BHL 123 crossed the block for the last time, it became the most expensive Lister ever sold at auction. Also consigned to the Scottsdale sale is this formidable Maserati A6G 2000 Frua Spider. One of three built by Frua, this is the only one in 'the open' as one of the sister cars was destroyed, while the other is hidden away in Cuba.
    Ahead of the launch of a TCR racer and a road-going equivalent, Cyan Racing have revealed a 500hp concept car version of the Link & Co 03. Previously successful with Link & Co's parent company Volvo, Cyan Racing plans to take the Chinese brand to the top level of touring car racing in 2019. The show car offers a first taste of what is to come from this ambitious program.

    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.

    The Lynk & Co and Cyan Racing project is not one car, and it's not "03 Cyan TCR Concept".

    There are two different cars:
    - 03 TCR racing car (the real thing)
    - 03 Cyan road car concept (renders only, not build yet)

    This is 03 TCR: Lynk & Co 03 Cyan TCR Concept
    This is 03 Cyan Concept: Lynk & Co 03 Cyan TCR Concept

    Here's more detailed press release from Geely Group, specs of the 03 TCR included:
