1956 Ferrari 410 Sport Scaglietti Spyder
Unlike many of the cars with an actual chance at winning the overall Best In Show award at Pebble Beach, this car was built with a single purpose in mind: winning races. Designed by Ferrari's racing Scuderia, Powered by a 5.0-liter V-12 engine, the Sport Scaglietti Spyder was a fast and lithe machine for its time, competing in the 1000 km of Buenos Aires among other events. Dominant until the mid-engined Ferraris arrived in the 1960s, this is just one of three Spyders built of this type. Racing legends like Phil Hill, Juan Manuel Fangio, and Carroll Shelby all drove this car.
