The Bonhams Goodwood Festival of Speed 2014 sale saw £22.6m worth of jaw-dropping cars change hands, including a £10.6m Ferrari.

A 1954 Ferrari 375-Plus has sold for £10.7m at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. It was the star lot of the 2014 Bonhams Goodwood Festival of speed sale which saw cars with a combined value of £22.6m find new owners.

The Ferrari 375-Plus has a distinguished racing pedigree which saw it compete in the 1954 Mille Miglia as well as at the Le Mans 24-hour race in the same year. It was the subject of keen interest from two battling bidders with the hammer finally falling at the £10.7m sale price.

I read that the Ferrari was found 20 years ago in dozens of pieces spread across a US forest, with a tree growing through the engine bay!
In which case, there will be very little original on the car- 11million for an original VIN plate nailed to a repro Ferrari seems very very steep!
