This Ferrari Might Become The Most Expensive Car Ever Sold At Auction


You could buy this or 30 LaFerraris. Your call.

At the Artcurial Motorcars Salon Retromobilesale in early February, one very special car has the potential to makehistory. The auction will feature a 1957Ferrari 355 S Spider Scaglietti. The car is expected to sell between $30 and$34 million. This puts it “just” a few million away from the all-time mostexpensive car ever sold at auction, a Ferrari 250 GTO that sold for awhopping $38 million. Thisparticular car began life as a 315 S that featured a 3.8-liter V12 engine that helped it compete in the Sebring 12 Hours. This engine was eventually replaced.

The car was later transformed with a larger4.1-liter V12 with 400 horsepower. After the engine upgrade, the car competedin the Le Mans 24 Hours with drivers Mike Hawthorn and Luigi Musso at thewheel.The car was forced to retire from the race, but not beforethe 355 S set a record as the first car to ever lap Le Mans with an averagespeed over 120 mph. This car features a long racing pedigree that includesseveral famous race car drivers sitting behind the wheel. This includes the legendary SirStirling Moss who once raced this particular car (unfortunately not winning). This Ferrari obviously has some serious credentials as a collector’sitem, and we can’t wait to see what it sells for.
