Rare 1957 Ferrari Sells at Auction for Over 32 Million Euro’s
This February a rare Ferrari 335 Spider Scaglietti was sold by auction house, Artcurial, in Paris to an unnamed international buyer. According to Simon Kidston, an advisory for classic car collectors in Geneva; “It was the most powerful racing car of the era.”

The Ferrari has been driven by racing legends including; Stirling Moss, Mike Hawthorn and Wolfgang Von Trips and has an impeccable pedigree and traceable history. All these factors support its value and price achieved.

While the mass sports car market softened in 2015, this sale demonstrates that good quality sports or classic cars are still making a good price at auction and continue to be a solid investment. An investment that needs protecting with comprehensive motor cover.
