Nicknamed the “giant killer” because of its small size, engine, and penchant for hunting down much bigger and more powerful machinery, the 550A (like the preceding 550 immortalized by James Dean) packed a tiny 1.5-liter boxer four engine.
It’s now consigned for Bonhams’ upcoming auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, slated for this coming January where is expected to fetch between $4.5 and $5.5 million.
