CIR­CUIT PER­MA­NENT DE LA SARTHE CE­MENT KILO­ME­TER MARKER

$12,000

Automobile - - Classic -

This par­tic­u­lar marker was orig­i­nally placed at the 4.5-kilo­me­ter mark on the 24 Hours of Le Mans cir­cuit’s fa­mous Mul­sanne Straight. It might seem like a lot for what amounts to 170 pounds of ce­ment, but the sale price was less than half its es­ti­mate, il­lus­trat­ing the dif­fi­culty in as­sign­ing value to es­o­teric pieces of racing his­tory.
