1955 Ferrari 410 Sport Spider by Scaglietti

The Ferrari 410 Sport Spider was one of the most significant purpose-built Ferrari “big block” sports-racing prototypes from the 1950s. The 5 liter engined beast of 400hp walloped all comers. The racing machine from Maranello was a thing of great beauty and power. Chassis number 0032 MT campaigned at the Mille Miglia and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Carroll Shelby won more races in a 1955 Ferrari 410 Sport Spider than in any other car, and this is the example that he competed in.
Shelby won the first race that he entered in the car in 1956 and went on to take 11 victories and 19 podium finishes (out of 40 races) until 1958. "It was the best Ferrari I ever drove," he said. RM Sotheby's will auction this piece of both Shelby and Ferrari history in Monterey in August. An estimate has been given ... $25m - $30m USD. HERE
