$12,000.000 ?

I thought I had read somewhere that it sold at auction for just under $10 million. I tried to find where I’d seen that figure and have been unable to, so perhaps you’re right.

$12,000.00 is just a guess. It got sold at Sotheby's  August 2018 for $9,795.000.

Hey Rex, that’s awesome you got to see this car! 

I think this is one of the best pics I’ve seen that accurately reflects the true look of the peach color on the nose. That is one tricky color to match, I might add... This is also why I posted a few different pics of the car under different lighting - to show just how much both the peach and the gold change... it is actually quite dramatic.
