1957 Ferrari 335 S Spider Scaglietti
|One of the rarest Ferraris in existence became one of the most expensive cars ever sold at auction. Price tag: £25 million, or about $36 million. Only four of the 1957 Ferrari 335 S Spider Scaglietti were made.|
Auction house Artcurial Motorcars put the vehicle on the block during its annual Retromobile sale in Paris in February.
A 4.1-litre V12 engine gives the car 400 horsepower, enabling it to reach a top speed of 190 miles per hour—unheard of at the time.
|The car won the Cuban Grand Prix in 1958, finished second in the Mille Miglia, and set a lap record at Le Mans during its racing career, having been driven by the likes of Stirling Moss and Mike Hawthorn.|

|The car debuted with a factory suggested retail price of approximately US$400,000 in 1987. The F40 was designed with aerodynamics in mind. For speed the car relied more on its shape than its power. |
|When Ferrari names a car after its founder you know it has to be something special. And the Enzo absolutely was. This carbon fiber supercar cost $659,430 new, but now it fetches more than $2 million. A total of 399 were built for sale and a 400th was built and donated to the Vatican to be auctioned off for charity. It made $6.05 million|
A 6.0-liter V-12 provides 650 proud Italian horses. The car could hit 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and blast through the quarter mile in 11.2 seconds. Carbon ceramic brakes provided stopping power. Most of this is standard on supercars today, but it was groundbreaking stuff 14 years ago.
|In 1955 a new engineering team was formed by Ferrari for 1956. These highly skilled men soon came up with a new two-litre sports racing car: the 500 TR. This was the first Ferrari designated with the new name 'Testa Rossa'. The four-cylinder-engined type 500 TR was introduced in 1956 and was the successor to the 500 Mondial. |
|This car was the 6th of 19 total cars. Chassis no. 0670 MDTR was sold new by the factory on 4 April, 1957. Since it was built, it has been owned by a succession of enthusiasts, the first two of which actively raced the car before the third owner and his family owned and maintained the car from 1966 to 1997 – more than three decades. The car sold for €2,800,000 in 2011.|
