With an interior mounted inscription from Caroll Shelby stating that “Mr. Ferrari told me that this was the best Ferrari he ever built,” there was never any doubt that the 1955 Ferrari 410 Sport Spider would demand a sizable sum of money. R375 million is the exact value as the hammer fell on its auction in Monterey.

The Monterey Car Week is filled with automotive marvels with carmakers displaying their state-of-the-art machinery but for many, automotive shows like this are a nod to the past and an ode to the golden era of motoring and motorsport.

The 4,9-litre V12 under the bonnet put out just under 300 kW and was capable of taking victories with icons like Juan Manual Fangio and Eugenio Castellotti. Watch more on the model with the embedded video below courtesy of RM Sotheby’s.

This year, the most expensive vehicle to be rolled off of the auction lot at the Monterey Car Week was this 1955 Ferrari 410 Sport Spider which had the hammer fall at $22 005 000 which roughly translates to R375 million. We have a feeling it was courtesy less with the racing pedigree and more to do with the Shelby signed plaque inscription stating that “Mr. Ferrari told me that this was the best Ferrari he ever built.”
