Just incredible.

This vehicle was raced during the late 1950s and into 1960, earning a first-in-class, two second-place finishes and two third-place finishes before being retired.

Here’s a video showing off the race car in greater detail.



It wasn’t the only car to be sold for well over $5,000,000 at auction on Friday, either. A 1953 Ferrari 250 MM Spider Series II went for $5,395,000.

Our other cover lot of the day – the 1953 Ferrari 250 MM Spider Series II – has just left our stage for a final price of $5,395,000! Well done and congrats to the lucky new owner.
