1957 Ferrari 500 TRC Spider by Scaglietti

In 1955 a new team was formed by Ferrari for 1956. They 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 type 500 TR was introduced in 1956 and was the successor to the 500 Mondial.
19 cars were produced in total. 10 months after its introduction the 500 TRC was replaced by the 250 Testa Rossa.
As the last four-cylinder sports racing car, the 500 TRC marked the end of an era at Ferrari.
This car was the 6th of 19 cars made. Chassis no. 0670 MDTR was sold new on 4 April, 1957. The car sold for €2,800,000 in 2011.
