Whether you appreciate curves, courtesy of famed auto designer Carrozzeria Scaglietti, or the impressive series of race wins it snagged from 1958 to 1961, the Ferrari 250 TR is a thing of beauty. As an ultra high-end collectors gem, the rare sale appearance of a 1957 model with period-correct paint is expected to fetch record bids in May, at RM Auction‘s Ferrari sale to be held in Maranello, Italy. In a press release, the auction house said the Ferrari’s ticket could exceed the $21.7 million ponied up for the 250 GTO last year. [via autoblog]
