1954 Ferrari 375-Plus auctioned for £10.7 million at Bonhams Festival of Speed

During the Goodwood Festival of Speed this past weekend, Bonhams held its yet another classic car auction, bringing in a total of £22.6 million.

The highlights of the whole auction was a 1954 Ferrari 375-Plus that saw two bidders battle with the hammer finally hitting at £10.7 million.

The Ferrari 375-Plus is powered by a 330bhp 4.9-litre V12 engine instead of the 4.5-litre unit found under the bonnet of the standard model. It also comes with a Formula One transaxle, while the lightweight Pininfarina body is finished in red.

The same car was raced in 1954 by Umberto Maglioli in the Mille Miglia and later by Froilan Gonzalez at Silverstone who won the race with this unique Ferrari.

Other high sales included a 1902 De Dietrich sold for £998,300 and a 1975 Lamborghini Countach that went for £953,500.
