In France, a rare 1951 Ferrari 340 America Barchetta with a Touring Superleggera body was put up for auction by Artcurial. For the famous racing car, they plan to fetch from 5 to 8 million euros – like for a HondaJet jet. Its details were revealed on the website of the auction house.

Such a high price is due, first of all, to the rarity of the model. Early Ferraris were produced in very small batches, and only six of these two-seat roadsters with an elegant body from Touring were assembled.

Into its time it was the most powerful and fastest Ferrari. Its 4.1-liter 300-horsepower V12 allowed it to reach speeds of about 280 km/h.

In addition on the other hand, the Ferrari 340 America has a well-worn racing history. The supercar took part in the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans and 12 Hours of Sebring competitions. Famous American racer Eddie Hall and Formula 1 champion Michael Hawthorne performed there. And in 1954, the car set a speed record in the American Daytona – it accelerated to 218.9 km/h over a short distance of 1 mile (1.6 km).

From the mid-50s, the Ferrari 340 stopped participating in races and changed hands several times. In 2013, the restoration of the car began – the body and chassis were restored, but the engine and interior still need to be put in order. But even in imperfect condition, a Ferrari supercar is very expensive.
