The LA Times reports that one of the cars used in the move Rush, formerly driven by James Hunt will be going up for auction.

James Hunt's 1977 McLaren M26 is still in working order. It has been raced in recent vintage events, and even more recently seen in the Ron Howard drama RUSH.

RK Motors Collector Car Auctions will be selling the M26 that Hunt drove the season after winning his only world championship title in 1976. It was that season that Hunt's rivalry with Austrian racer Niki Lauda came to a head, the events of which were chronicled in the recent film.

The auction service has not released the name of the current owner, but did say the estimated value of the racer that Hunt drove has a pre-sale estimate of $1.2 million to $1.8 million.
