Racing cars don't get much more historic than this, perhaps the most important single car to have been sold by Ferrari in the past 20 years. The Ferrari 333 SP was a sports prototype car originally built by Michelotto to World Sports Car regulations. Unveiled at the end of 1993, at the behest of amateur racer Gianpiero Moretti (owner of the MOMO auto parts business), the 333 SP marked Ferrari's official return to sports car racing after a 20 year absence.

FGT250C

 

With Ferrari's GT cars claiming successes on race tracks and in road races around the world in the mid 1950s, the market for the company's road cars was becoming stronger and stronger, particularly in North America. The Ferrari distributor for that market was Luigi Chinetti, an Italian who had settled there and ran the North American Racing Team. He believed that an open sports model with competition pedigree would be a sure seller in the sunshine states of the U.S. Ferrari took heed of this advice and in 1957 the chassis of one of Ferrari's current Competition Berlinettas, the 250 Tour de France, was removed from the production line and while retaining the competition orientated 3 litre V12 engine and drivetrain, was reclothed with the most exquisite open, spyder body, styled by Scaglietti.  $225aud

The new car was designated the California, after the state where it was perceived most would be sold.  

To save weight and cost, the fabric top was neither lined nor padded and it completely disappears under the rear deck.  With a rudimentary heater and windup side windows, the California provided the essentials for comfortable touring, while dispensing with unnecessary luxury touches. With the 4.57 rear-end ratio (the lowest available), top speed was limited to 126 mph, but acceleration was awesome-the perfect setup for speed-limited U.S. roads. But the tractable, high-revving, high-torque V12 still provides a great around-town driving experience.. Although not campaigned extensively, like the Tour de France Berlinettas it was based on, the California Spyder had a significant competition career. California's ran successfully at tracks like Lime Rock, Marlboro, Bridgehampton, and Cumberland.

For the world record trials, Auto Union used the aerodynamic body panels that had been developed from tests carried out in the wind tunnel of the German aeronautical research establishment. 

With a drag coefficient (cd) of just 0.24 it is better then the Mercedes Benz Streamliner with a cd of 0.25. It is a testament to modern car design that a 1996 Mitsubishi magna has a cd of 0.28

SOLD

The Auto Union Type C streamlined version had a 6005cc 16 Cylinder engine which delivered 520 bhp at 5000 rpm.  In October 1937 on the Frankfurt - Darmstadt stretch of the autobahn Bernd Rosemyer created a legend by breaking 15 records in three days. Among these he reached a sensational to speed over a mile of 406.3 kph from a flying start and 216.4 KPH from a standing start over the same distance.

In 1958, the first DB4 was released. Aston Martin was anxious to take it to the track. To do this they upgraded the DB4 to GT specification. The GT model had modifications which prepared it for endurance racing, Le Mans very much in their sights. Under the hood, triple Weber carburettors, twin ignition and a 9 to 1 compression ratio help to rise the power to 302 bhp.

These hand detailed models start with 1:18 scale Revel models of the Auto Union Type C Streamline Grand Prix racer and WSR (World Speed Record) car. The engine is then detailed with water based paint for the pipes, flanges, fittings and couplings, red and orange for some components like coils, filters and relay boxes. Small pieces of thin plastic tube are cut for the spark plug caps and thin wires attached to form the spark plug leads for the V16 engine. Tiny 0.1 mil holes are drilled in to the top of the supercharger to mount the tiny oil feed pipes and braided fuel lines.  SOLD

The Auto Union Type C cars were very successful in their open wheel format but even more spectacular was the streamlined version the "Stromlinie" that made an appearance in the non formula AVUS race in Berlin in 1937.Using the body developed for the World Speed Record car, with a cd of just 0.237. A conspicuous feature was the cut outs over the wheel arches, these were designed to allow the driver to see the condition of the tires. They were edged in black to improve the contrast. In the race Rosemyer reached a top speed of 380 kph on the long straight. This made him not only faster then present day Formula 1 racers, but he also ran the fastest lap that has ever been run on any circuit (distance / time).

 Initially conceived as a Gran Turismo, Ferrari's 250 soon diverged into two paths, the GT coupes and cabriolets and the lightweight competition Berlinettas. The Berlinettas designed by Pininfarina and built in small numbers by Scaglietti were the ultimate dual-purpose cars, competitive at Le Mans but often driven to races. Nowhere were the 250 Berlinettas more at home than on the Tour de France, the legendary marathon where performance, reliability and adaptability made the marque a consistent winner.

SOLD

 

Ferrari  further developed their 250 GT. They built the 250 Gran Turismo Omologato (GTO), a car named after the homologation process. Providing a base for the GTO was the 250 GT chassis, it took advantage of a much lower and shorter dry-sump engine.In the 1962 Le Mans, GTOs placed second and third overall. By the end of the first season, Jaguar, Aston Martin and Chevrolet tried to convince the governing body that the GTO was not a GT car. However, since the GTO was an 'evolution' of the largely produced 250 GT road car, it was within rules.

The epic Testa Rossa  first appeared in 1956 as the TR500, the technicians painted the  tappet covers red to distinguish the motor from others. This  Ferrari featured the famous V12 designed by Gioacchino Colombo. this engine powered may models including the 250 LM, GT and GTO.  

SOLD

Much of the development work carried out on the Ferrari GT cars filtered down into the non competition orientated cars in the company's range. Lessons learnt in making the V12 engines last an endurance race distance helped the factory engineers develop the road going engines reliability. Lessons learnt on chassis improvements required on such testing events as the Carrera Pan Americana were fed into all the products of the Maranello firm. By the early 1960's this tandem development programme was such that cars such as the 250 GTE, a stylish road car that shared the majority of it's chassis and mechanical elements with the race bred Ferraris of the day.
