When Chrysler brass told Virgil Exner that they wanted a concept for a personal sporting car, Exner took them at their word and designed the XNR, named after himself. After the car was retired from the show circuit, though Exner wanted to buy it from the company, the company had to ship it back to Italy, where Ghia had built it, or else it would have paid prohibitive customs fees. Ghia sold it and eventually it passed through the collection of the Shah of Iran and on to Lebanon, where it was hidden in an underground garage to protect it during Lebanon’s civil war. The owner, Karim Edde, had it restored a couple of years ago prior to putting it on the auction block and it sold for over $900 million in 2011.
