Considered one of the most alluring, competitive and iconic of all Ferrari racing cars, the immediately recognisable Scaglietti-designed, ‘pontoon-fender’ 250 TR was produced from 1957 to 1958 during which only 22 were constructed. The Ferrari 250 TRs are bestowed with the honor of being one of the most desirable and competitive racing Ferraris ever built. This earns the rite of legendary status among collectors.
RM Auctions, in association with Sotheby’s, will present one of the most historically significant and valuable Ferrari racing cars ever offered at auction when its Ferrari Leggenda e Passione event returns to Maranello, May 17, 2009. Happy bidding to all those who make it out. Just to give you an idea of how much this classic can expect to go for: a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyder sold for a world-record $10,894,400 USD last year.
