A beautifully restored Ferrari 290 MM by Scaglietti has sold at auction by RM Sotherby’s for $22,005,000.
The car, with its four-cylinder 860 Monza engine, was built specifically as a Scuderia Ferrari Works car for the 1956 and 1957 seasons. Its first outing was at the Mille Miglia, one of the world’s most significant motor racing events.
