1955 Ferrari 500 Mondial Scaglietti Spyder Thomas R. Peck, Irvine, California

The Ferrari 500 Mondial used a new 4-cylinder engine developed by Ferrari’s chief engineer, Aurelio Lampredi. The 4-cylinder layout had better low-end torque than Ferrari’s V12, allowing for more acceleration out of corners, and its lighter weight provided better handling. At its first race, the 12 Hours of Casablanca in December 1953, factory drivers Alberto Ascari and Gigi Villoresi finished first in class and second overall, and the model went on to play an integral role in winning Ferrari’s second Sports Car World Championship in 1954. This car (chassis 0580MD) is a second series Mondial built by Sergio Scaglietti. First shown in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1956, it was raced throughout Scandinavia, often on ice-circuits wearing spiked tires, until 1960. Once its ice-racing career was over, it was sold to Claudio Caggiati in Italy who entered the car in a record-breaking 17 Mille Miglia retrospectives. Its present owner bought the car at the end of 2014 and has now restored it to its Stockholm Auto Show condition.
