1956 Ferrari 290 MM at RM Sotheby's

A Ferrari Classiche-certified 1956 Ferrari 290 MM previously raced by Formula 1 legends Juan Manuel Fangio, Peter Collins and Sir Stirling Moss topped RM Sotheby's auction on Dec 8. The car has received a complete restoration by Ferrari Classiche in Italy and houses a perfect Tipo 130 V12 engine.
The car was built at the direction of company founder Enzo Ferrari, and it was the last of four 290 MM models built in 1956. A competition Ferrari, with a winning history, that was driven by several world famous drivers. That makes it desirable.

It made $ 22m.
In 2015 a 1956 Ferrari 290 MM made $28m.
