Look Inside a Powerful Ferrari Race Car

Launch Slideshow

During the golden era of sports car racing in the 1950s and 1960s, Ferraris were popular options for those with means and a desire to win. In the hierarchy of the LWB California Spiders, chassis number 1451 GT, on offer in RM Sotheby’s: New York – ICONS auction, sits at the very top of the pyramid. Built to full “competizione” specifications, it was bodied in aluminum and featured a host of performance modifications. With the help of Luigi Chinetti, the car’s first pilot ran it at the 24 Hours of Le Mans – just five days after it was delivered. Click ahead to discover the details behind this mechanical marvel, which welcomes continued entry to the world’s finest concours events and vintage races. –Jake Auerbach
