The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is also host to a well established classic cars auction and to retain its position we were treated this year to a really, really high selling Prancing Horse classic.
The vehicle in question, a race bred 1953 Ferrari 375 MM Spider that won the SCCA National in 1954 fetched no less than $9,075,000. With single-ownership for a half-century (since 1968) and the only 375MM Spider with unique pontoon-fenders, liveried in “Kimberly Red” and bodied by Pinin Farina, there is no question why it took almost $10 million.
With a tubular steel frame, four-wheel drum brakes, independent front suspension with transverse leaf springs, live axle with parallel trailing arms and semi-elliptic leaf springs and a 4,494 cc overhead-camshaft V-12 engine with triple Weber carburetors the 340 bhp machine is for sure one of the ultimate gentlemen driver’s dreams.
