A 1954 Ferrari 375-Plus is likely to provide the highlight of Bonhams' sale of collector cars and automobilia at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 27.  

The car is offered without reserve but is expected to achieve a figure in excess of £10m ($16.6m).  

Ferrari 375-Plus Bonhams
The Ferrari 375-Plus is one of only five models ever produced

Only five examples of the model were ever produced, with this example the first to roll off the production line.

It was raced in the Mille Miglia, the Le Mans 24-Hour and Silverstone in the year of its production.

After retirement it was sold to Kleenex heir Jim Kimberley and then on to nuclear physicist Karl Kleve.

Philip Kantor, Bonhams' head of motor cars for mainland Europe, commented: "We are honored to have been chosen to sell this wonderful car, which represents a key early stage in the Ferrari racing legend.

"It is very rare indeed for a Ferrari team works car with continuous history and undisputed identity to come to the market for sale by public auction. We believe it will attract interest from all over the world."

Last year a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO set a world record figure for a car when it made $52m in a private sale.

The Goodwood sale will also feature a one of a kind Aston Martin Atom.
