1957 Ferrari 335 Sport Scaglietti - £22,000,000-25,000,000 estimate

 

Smash open the penny jar and get rummaging down the sofa: this classic Ferrari racer is up for auction on Friday, and you’re going to need at least £22million.

If your collection of coins doesn’t quite stretch to that, though, we have some other suggestions of wondrous stuff to buy from the scores of cars going under the hammer this Friday and Saturday, all at the Artcurial Cars auction at Paris’s Retromobile show.

Scroll through to see the 10 cars we think you ought to be bidding on…



1957 Ferrari 335 Sport Scaglietti - £22,000,000-25,000,000 estimate

Estimated to fetch nearly as much as the UK’s record lottery win, we could only ever start with that Ferrari.

Classic Ferraris have a habit of fetching oodles of notes at auction: the pub trivia fans among you might already know the car auction record is held by a Ferrari 250 GTO, as is the highest price ever paid for a car, a princely £35million. This 335 is expected to become the most expensive car ever auctioned in Europe, though.

Why so much? Motorsport provenance, of course. It’s won a Grand Prix and finished second in the Mille Miglia. Stirling Moss, Mike Hawthorn and Wolfgang von Trips are just some of the bona fide racing legends who’ve driven it.

It also has a 400bhp V12. And while we’re not heard it start up, we’d bet all that we own it sounds the absolute nuts. And then put our winnings towards buying it…
