A rare 1965 Shelby Cobra is up for auction at Mecum High Performance Auctions and could sell for up to $15 million. If the legendary sports car sells for that price, it will surpass the previous world record for the highest amount a car has ever been sold — $11 million for a Ferrari California Spyder.

The 1965 Shelby Cobra isn’t just expected to sell high because of its great looks. The car has racing history as being the first American racecar to ever beat Ferrari in the world racing championships in Europe. The car is only 1 of 6 ever made and will go on the auction block on May 15th.
