A trio of rarely seen, futuristic concept cars from the 1950s are going up for auction at Sotheby's, with an estimated value of up to $20 million.

The one-off cars, which were commissioned to showcase the radical design engineering and pioneering aerodynamics of the era, are being offered as a single lot for the first time, with an estimate of between $14 million and $20 million at the October 28 evening sale in New York.

The cars were never shown together in the 1950s and were sold to separate collectors after being exhibited.

Even if the cars sell for the estimated $20 million, they won't be the most expensive to go on the block.

In 2018, a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO sold for $48. 4 million at RM Sotheby's annual Monterey collector car sale -- a world record for any car ever sold at auction.
