1957 Ferrari 335 S Could Set $30+ Million Auction Record

1957 Ferrari 335 S Could Set $30+ Million Auction Record

You know what they say about records, they’re made to be broken. And that’s just what could happen when a Ferrari goes on the auction block in February.

A 1957 Ferrari 335 Sport Scaglietti could sell for more than $30 million dollars when bidding opens at Artcurial in Paris next month.

That would be the world record for most expensive car ever sold at a public auction. The current record was set in 2014 when a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO sold at just under $38 million.

1957 Ferrari

The 1957 specimen has an estimated price of $34.745 million, but when you add auction fees to that, it could shoot up and over the 2014 record-holder.

As you might imagine, the 1957 Ferrari has quite a racing history. It was raced to a checkered flag by British Formula One champion Stirling Moss at the Cuban Grand Prix in 1958.

Other cars going up on the block in Paris include a 1963 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta (estimated at $10–13.2m), Gianni Agnelli’s unique 1986 Ferrari Testrossa Spider ($750k-1m), and a 1962 Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet Series 2 that belonged to the King of Morocco ($1.5-1.9m).
