A very rare Ferrari will be up for grabs at the Goodwood Festival of Speed auction in June 2014. Bonhams auction house will be auctioning the 1950s Ferrari 375 Plus which was one of the quickest and most powerful racing cars of its time. The vintage Ferrari racing car is expected to set a world record and could go for more than 10 million pounds at the auction. The car is equipped with a 4.9-litre V12 engine which is capable of producing 330bhp of power. The sports car has a top speed of 175mph and only four models of this rare Ferrari very ever made.
The classic Ferrari was first driven by Umberto Maglioli in the 1954 Mille Miglia before being steered to victory by Argentinean Froilan Gonzalez at Silverstone. Its final race was at the 24 Hours of Le Mans where it deposited the fastest lap of the race before being forced to retire. It was bought by Ferrari importer Jacques Swaters in the 1990s after passing through the hands of several collectors. Bonhams has not set a reserve price as the rare Ferrari 375 Plus is expected to break previous auction records when it goes under hammer in June at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
