An ultra-rare Ferrari has become one of the world’s most valuable cars after it was sold at auction for a staggering £4million.
The stunning 1957 Ferrari 625 TRC Spider, dubbed the ‘prettiest ever made’, which stole the show after a bidding frenzy broke out among wealthy investors.
The auction house was hoping the car would fetch around £2.4 million but, as with many classic Ferrari’s, this proved to be a conservative estimate. Jaws dropped around the hall when the hammer eventually went down at £4 million – making it the star lot.
One of just two ever built, the 55-year-old car has been described as ‘one of the prettiest ever Ferraris’ boasting a ‘design without fault’. The 1950s racer was originally fitted with a 2.5-litre engine but underwent a full restoration in 1982 and now has a 3-litre V12 engine which develops 320bhp.
