Ferrari 410 S

1955 Ferrari 410 S Berlinetta by Scaglietti

Offered by RM Auctions | Monterey, California | August 17, 2012

The Ferrari 410 Superamerica was biggest, baddest Ferrari you could buy between 1955 and 1959. It featured a 5.0-liter V12 making 340 horsepower. The car was an evolution of the America line, that included its predecessor 375 America and the 340 before it. The 400 Superamerica actually came after the 410.

This car has one-of-a-kind coachwork by Scaglietti and its really quite racy looking with dual, off-set hood scoops and a rear that just sort of rounds off after the rear window. The 410 was designed to compete in the Carrera Panamericana road race, but never actually did. Of the 35 410 Superamericas built, only two were factory prepped race cars. This is not one of those, although it did partake in some hillclimbing in the 1960s and the 2002 Mille Miglia.

Ownership history is known from new and the car was restored within the past 10 years. This car will be a hot ticket to discriminating shows and should fetch quite a sum, although RM is being coy about what that sum might be. For the complete lot description, click here.

Update: Sold $8,250,000.
