Porsche 550A Spyder

Classic racing Porsche Spyder has changed the owner for a record $5 million at an auction in the U.S.
Preserved and rare examples of automotive history are gaining in price, as evidenced by this Porsche 550A Spyder from 1958. The car that in its time won on famous trails such as the Dutch Zandvoort or the German Nirburgring, was auctioned off at Bonhams Scottsdale Auction for $5.17 million.

Equipped with a relatively modest four-cylinder 1.5-liter engine with 110 hp, this Porsche competed in the era of powerful machines, when at the Le Mans triumphed a much stronger Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa powered by an V12 aggregate with nearly three times more horsepowers.
The German manufacturer made only 40 copies of the 550A Spyder, which made the car even more valuable. That’s why it’s no surprise that this historic copy set a new record (for a given model) based on the price it has earned at the auction.
