You know that saying, "You learn something new everyday"? Well, that just happened.
For years we've watch cars go up on the auction block at Pebble Beach, but few can hold the attention of bidders like a vintage Ferrari. Typically painted red and having nuances only experts would really know about, these cars have no problem fetching seven — and now eight — figures.
There's just one thing: A Ferrari has never actually won the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. I find that almost impossible, but alas it is true.
This year was different.
Taking the coveted Best in Show award was a 1954 Ferrari 375 MM. Owned by a gentleman based out of Washington, it has a particularly interesting story.
First off, it's one of five road-going 375 MMs. After a brutal accident, the vehicle's remains were sent back to Scaglietti in the homeland to be redone. The end result was Ferrari's first passenger vehicle.
Pretty boss, huh?
