Auction Block: Niki Lauda’s 1975 Ferrari 312T Race Car

Legendary Formula One driver and three-time world champion Niki Lauda sadly passed away on May 20th of this year. But he will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the greatest athletes to ever hit the asphalt. Now, one of his race cars, a 1975 Ferrari 312T that helped him win his titles, is headed to the auction block.

Even without the pedigree of having been driven by one of the most impactful racers of all time, this vehicle is an impressive feat of engineering — one of just five of the evolutionary “transversale” Grand Prix cars built for the 1975 season. Powered by a flat-12 engine, this svelte racer had 500bph and became one of the most important and dominant vehicles in Ferrari’s racing history. And we’re sure being piloted by Lauda during perhaps his most accomplished year had plenty of impact on that fact. A true piece of automotive history, Niki Lauda’s 1975 Ferrari 312T will hit the Gooding & Company Pebble Beach auction block in mid-August of this year.
