Another classic that has caught our eyes this week is the venerable rally car known as the Lancia Stratos. RM Sotheby’s is offering up this beauty and you can expect it to fall in the price bracket of around £270,000 – £320,000. The car packs a Dino V6 engine with triple Weber carburetors and 192hp. The car is only 1 of 492 cars ever made and is coming onto the market after 20 years of ownership. A rare breed of car for a true rally fan.

#6 Floating Private Islands

As the title suggest, this is exactly what you think it is. That’s right Branson wannabe, Amillarah are allowing you to buy your very own floating oasis. Designed by Dutch architect Koen Olthuis, each island promises to be eco-friendly whilst creating new underwater habitats for surrounding sea life. Owners can even get to choose where their island is located around the world. Jurassic Park anyone?
