Paul Newman's car collection to be sold at auction

The late Paul Newman, the Academy Award-winning actor, successful race car driver, entrepreneur and philanthropist, has deemed in his will that his collection of cars and private airplane should be sold at auction, with the proceeds to go to his estate. Details about the auction itself are scarce, with no date provided as of yet, nor a catalog of items. While the exact number of cars and their makes and models remains uncertain, Newman was heavily involved with racing Datsun (Nissan) models during the 1970s, 1980s and early 1990s, leading to speculation that some of his previous racing Datsuns will be appearing at the auction. Also possibly up for sale could be Paul Newman's own Volvo 950, which featured a Cosworth V8 engine pumping out around 400hp (298kW) through its RWD chassis.
