A French auction house has unearthed over sixty cars which have laid untouched for almost fifty years in a corrugated steel shed in the west of France. The discovered was made just three months ago after rumours of a cache of automotive relics was investigated. The collection is valued at between €12-15 million ($16-20million) and will be offered for sale in February.

The collection was built up with the intention of turning it into a private museum, but it's owner Roger Baillon fell on hard times and never finished the task.

The collection includes:

1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider and a 1956 Maserati A6G Gran Sport Frua

Talbot Lago T26 cabriolet Saoutchik ex-King Farouk

Hispano Suiza H6B cabriolet Millon-Guiet

1956 Maserati A6G Gran Sport Frua
