Driven by the late actor to a second-place finish at his first 24 Hours of Le Mans (along with team owner Dick Barbour and Rolf Stommelen), Paul Newman's 1979 Porsche 935 Le Mans Race Car has more than a little racing pedigree. 

It also won the 1981 24 Hours of Daytona with Bobby Rahal at the wheel, as well as the 1983 12 Hours of Sebring. Apple fans will also know this car as the only race car the company ever sponsored, wearing the white and rainbow livery during the 1980 season. It was restored in 2006 and finished in the same Hawaiian Tropic paint scheme it sported when Newman drove it, and is an ideal car for both show and vintage racing events.
