Drivers Jean Guichet and Nino Vaccarella drove #0816 to victory at Le Mans 

Drivers Jean Guichet and Nino Vaccarella pulled off a blistering average top speed of 122 mph over the course of the race.

Matthieu Lamoure, MD of Artcurial Motorcars, said: "This car represents the ultimate and the truly exceptional. It has reached the summit of sports car racing worldwide.

“To look at this automotive masterpiece, is to look at the best and most prestigious racing provenance. It radiates the DNA of success."

The car is consigned from the collection of Pierre Bardinon, a celebrated collector of racing Ferraris who died last year.

Bardinon went as far as to build a full-size racetrack in the grounds of his chateau at Mas du Clos.

Admirers of his collection included none other than Enzo Ferrari.

In 2016, Bardinon’s 1957 Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti sold for a world record $35.7m – making it the most valuable car ever sold at auction.

Will this model edge out that result?

It’s entirely possible. The estimate is around $35.3m, a figure it could easily exceed.
