There is a bunch of auction heading our way next month and these are packing a lot of goodies for collector’s and gearheads alike. These events are the perfect place to find some of the rarest rides in history. Likewise, unique items can pop up and catch bidders by surprise. Just like the collection of children’s cars that will be on offer at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed Sale.
RM Sotheby’s never disappoints when it comes to the contents of their catalog. Thus, we are looking forward to seeing what else goes up the auction block that can trump the 1955 Ferrari 375 MM Coupe Speciale by Ghia. This stunning model is a rare specimen that pays homage to the world-renowned Mille Miglia endurance race. Still, in pristine condition, the 1955 Ferrari 375 MM Coup Speciale sports a two-tone colorway.
Donning a Salmon and Gunmetal Gray coat, it’s a color that you don’t often see on a Ferrari, let alone on a classic automobile. Powering this vintage machine is a 4.5-liter V12 engine mated to a four-speed manual transmission. It’s capable of pumping out 335 horsepower, which is impressive coming from a sports car of its age.
To those not familiar with Ferrari’s older offerings, its form factor is a step beyond what people expect. Nevertheless, it is absolutely stunning and upon closer inspection. Peeking inside, we’re seeing two-tone trimmings all around. Despite some noticeable cracks, the condition of the leather seats and upholstery is still impressive. The 1955 Ferrari 375 MM Coupe Speciale by Ghia will be one of the most coveted items during the auction.
