Ferrari 335 Spider Scaglietti Sets Auction Record
Shortly before 7:00 p.m. at the Retromobile Salon in Paris, Artcurial Motorcars presented the iconic 1957 Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti, from the Pierre Bardinon Collection. The room fell silent as the lights were dimmed and the brilliant vintage racer was rolled onto the stage. Matthieu Lamoure, Managing Director of Artcurial Motorcars, presented the car to the bidders in the room, describing the history, design and provenance of the Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti we wrote about earlier.
Maitre Hervé Poulain started the bidding at 20 M€. A minute later, several people in the room and on the telephone were involved and bids rose to 26 M€. It was a further ten minutes before an international bidder in the room triumphed over the only telephone bidder to remain in the battle. To loud applause, the hammer came down on and a record was set as the red Ferrari sold for $35,711,359 with all the fees and premiums included.
