Even in a day when technology seems to have left every inch of the earth mapped, photographed and captured whether thats online or elsewhere, it seems hard to believe that there are locations in the world that still have valuable hidden treasures that have been left undiscovered for many years.

After seeking advice from auctioneers, the grandchildren of entrepreneur Roger Baillon were shocked to discover that 60 vintage cars from the 1930s and 1960s era have been left to rust in sheds and outdoors at a farm in Western France. It is estimated that if all of the cars go to auction they could make £12 million.

The reason they are so valuable is these cars from the 1930s and 1960s are hardly your average car of that time, these are exotic cars such as Ferrari's and Maserati's. The cars are expected to go to auction in Paris on the 6th February and any that aren't fit for restoration will be sold for spare parts.
