While vintage Ferrari’s represent some of the most elite and sought-after cars on earth, Prancing Horse specimens with authenticated competition pedigrees are on an even more prestigious level. And, while they very seldom pop up for sale, a 1952 Ferrari 340 America specimen with an extensive race history is looking for a new owner.

This specific Ferrari Classiche Department-certified 1952 model (chassis no. 0202A) is one of only two-dozen units produced. Powering the car is a 4.1L V-12 engine mated to a four-speed manual transmission. Adorned in Vignale coachwork decorated in a period-correct French Racing Blue No. 14 livery, this 340 America was piloted by Andre Simon and Lucien Vincent in the 1952 24 Hours of Le Mans where it achieved 5th place. After its racing days, this elite example was stashed away, only to resurface in 1990, at which point it sold for just $200, before trading hands again in 2006 for $27K. This ex-Le Mans 1952 Ferrari 340 America is now expected to sell for several million dollars through the Mecum Gallery. For more information, you can check out the link below.
