A 1957 Ferrari 500 TRC Spider Is Heading to Auction

A 1957 Ferrari 500 TRC Spider is slated to hit the auction soon at RM Sotheby’s.

Designed by Sergio Scaglietti, the classic car features a Type 131 C two-liter engine. With only 19 units made, the open-body racecar was the last four-cylinder vehicle Ferrari produced. In addition to being limited-edition, the car boasts a unique history as it was raced at the 1957 24 Hours of Le Mans by Richie Ginther and François Picard. It was also driven by Gaston Andrey on the way to the 1958 and 1959 SCCA E-Modified championships. Its successful racing career amassed 18 podium finishes in total.

Offered from the Oscar Davis Collection, the restored racecar features Ferrari’s signature red paint with black and white detailing.

The 1957 Ferrari 500 TRC Spider is set to go up for auction next month in Monterey, California with a price ranging from $8,000,000 USD to $10,000,000 USD.
