RM Auctions - which ably assisted in removing £5.6 million from Chris Evans' wallet in 2008 - has hosted its inaugural Sporting Classics of Monaco event in, erm, Monaco, writes Vijay Pattni.

And this is the cover car: the BMW 328 ‘Ironed Trousers’. No, really.

This classic, mint condition modified Beemer has just sold for an undisclosed confidential sum somewhere north of £3.8 million. And is named after a pair of ironed trousers...

undoubtedly one of the most beautiful bmws ever built. Having seen it in person last year on Frankfurt's motor show it was definately the highlight of the day. It sounded fantastic too when he opened up the throttle!

Was the pre-war H&R set stiff enough or should they go with the coilovers from Bilstein?

At least when the new owner swaps rims, he won't have to deal with TPMS.

the meaning of frivolous is relative. somebody who buys a $5.5M car has several other multi-million dollar cars/collections. It would be like somebody with a comfortable salary who drives a honda. They look at driving a 50-60K BMW as frivolous.

+1, I agree that BMW 328 "Mille Miglia" is one of the most handsome cars BMW has ever built.

Wait, someone paid 5.6 million pounds for it in 2008 and it sold now for 3.8 million? Ouch. That is a pretty brutal loss.

I'd argue that this is still the best looking BMW ever built.

They paid 5.6 million pounds for another car. Not this one.

Let's stop making fun of the Monopoly man. That guy is an american board game icon. The guy from the pic is a rich COCK, like Mr. Clarkson will put it.
