Auction Block: 1954 Ferrari 500 Mondial Spider By Pininfarina

The 1950s was the golden era of sports car racing in America, and California was its headquarters. This 1954 Ferrari 500 Mondial Spider By Pinin Farina is a must-have for automobile adrenaline junkies and classic car enthusiasts.

Finding its way to Southern California after the Korean War, chassis number 0448 MD is number 12 of 13 Pininfarina Spiders ever built. The car had an extensive overhaul completed by none other than Ferrari Classiche just last month. This prancing horse retains its original engine, bodywork, and gearbox, making it a true slice of race car history. The vehicle has only had three long-term owners in the past six decades and is eligible for the world’s most prestigious events, such as the Mille Miglia. If you want to own one of the five Ferrari Mondial Spiders with a special “covered headlight” style bodywork, you’re going to need some luck and a big bankroll. The exceptional vehicle is expected to rake in somewhere between $4.7 to $5.3 million at auction.

Purchase: $4,700,000+
