Next Big Thing: An Auction Preview

THE CAR

From the outset, Enzo Ferrari committed his racing team, Scuderia Ferrari, to success on the track. Following a victorious 1953 campaign—which resulted in a World Sportscar Championship—Ferrari set his sights on another world title and commissioned engine designer Aurelio Lampredi and Italian coachbuilder Pinin Farina to design a new V-12-powered spider. The resulting racecar, known as the 375 Plus, led Scuderia Ferrari to victories at Le Mans, Silverstone, and the five-day Carrera Panamericana road race through Mexico.

Despite the car’s continued racing success, only four competition chassis were built, along with one road-going cabriolet commissioned by the king of Belgium. Of the four competition Ferrari 375 Plus racecars, only three still exist, one of which will be sold through Bonhams in June.
