The star of the show might just be this immaculate 1953 Ferrari 340 MM Spider by Vignale. The 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Phil Hill Cup award winner, this car is one of only 4 surviving 340 MM Vignale Spiders.

The festivities kick off with previews on Friday and Saturday starting at 10:00 a.m. and the auction starting Saturday at 5:30 p.m. More information, including the entire docket, can be found HERE.
