This 1957 Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti Just Sold For An Insane $35.7 Million

Auction

And it still didn't set a new sales record...in the US, at least.

It nearly broke an all-time auction record, but the sale of this 1957 Ferrari 335 Sport Scaglietti shouldn’t be taken lightly. After all, someone just paid $35.7 million for it at the Paris Retromobile show. Why is this Ferrari so special? It was first driven by Peter Collins and Maurice Trinitgnant in the 1957 Sebring 12 Hours, followed by Wolfgang von Trips in the Millie Miglia of the same year, where it came in second place. F1 champion Mike Hawthorn drove it the following year in the 24 Hours of Le Mans where he was first to set a lap record of over 200 km/h (124 mph).

And, perhaps you’ve heard of him, the one and only Sir Stirling Moss drove it and won the 1958 Cuban Grand Prix. For years, the car was a part of the prestigious Bardinon collection, but its namesake died in 2012 and much of the collection is now being sold.

Now, the 335 S failed to beat the world record $38.115 million price set by a 1962 250 GTO in August, 2014 at Monterey Car Week. However, the former has set a new record for a car sold in Euros and Pounds Sterling.
