The RM Auctions’ 25th anniversary Sports & Classics of Monterey auction in August will feature some of the most exclusive cars in the world. One of them will be a Scaglietti-designed ‘Pontoon Fender’ 250 Testa Rossa. With only 21 units produced, the 250 Testa Rossa was produced from 1957 to 1958.
This car in particular was delivered new to Brazilian Jean-Louis Lacerda Soares and was raced for several seasons in South America under the Esquardari Largatixa banner where it recorded a number of successful finishes. For the past 14 years it has been campaigned extensively in its yellow and green Brazilian racing colors, recording numerous wins and podium finishes at the world’s most prestigious historic racing events.
Although no one knows exactly much money it will be auctioned for, we have to remind you that in 2009 a 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa was sold for a record $12 million . That sounds promising.
