Historically important competition Ferraris up for grabs
On 20th of this month, the Palace Hotel in Gstaad, Switzerland will be the place where two historically important competition Ferraris from the estate of the late Antoine Midy will be up for auction. First is the 1955 121 LM Spyder by Scaglietti, chassis no. 0558LM, which was raced by the late Phil Hill in both the 1955 Le Mans 24 Hours and the Venezuela Grand Prix. This magnificent sports-prototype Ferrari was the fifth and last of the select batch of 6-cylinder big-engine projectiles. It is estimated to sell for between $2.3 and $3.3 million. The other roadster is the 1951 Ferrari 212 Export Spyder by Carrozzeria Motto, chassis no. 094E, which won 2nd in class and finished 3rd overall in the 1954 Mille Miglia, driven by Piero Scotti. This Ferrari is estimated to sell for between £1.35 and £1.85 million.
