On a recent Saturday night, at the annual charity auction in Beverly Hills, Hollywood actor Jason Statham’s 1960 Jaguar E-Type was sold for a whopping $5 million.

The auction, which was attended by many notable celebrities and philanthropists, was hosted by the prestigious auction house, Sotheby’s.
