There Are Some Great Cars Going To Auction In Monterey This Year

by Mike –

Monterey Car Week is ten weeks from now but there are already several great looking cars slated for auction. Here are some I will be watching.

1954 Ferrari 375 MM Spider By Pinin Farina, Chassis No. 0362AM – at Mecum

Mecum says,

Designed purely for the rigors of endurance racing, the Ferrari 375 Mille Miglia also furthered Ferrari’s reputation for building superb dual purpose sports machines while establishing Pinin Farina as Ferrari’s coachbuilder of choice. The 375 MM first appeared at the 1953 24 Hours of Le Mans. Fundamentally it combined a 340 MM chassis with the 4.5 L/340 HP V-12 developed for the stillborn Indianapolis 500 project. Weighing in at just 2,000 pounds, the 375 MM in Berlinetta form set a lap record at the Sarthe that year before retiring. Later that same year another 375 MM took fourth place in Mexico’s Carrera Panamericana, sealing the first of Ferrari’s many Manufacturers World Championships.

I say remember when the DB6 was an affordable option to a DB5? Not any more the DB6 may be less expensive than a DB5 but it is no longer affordable for most collectors.
