On the Block: Phil Hill Ferrari



Ferrari will celebrate the upcoming Mille Miglia by cleaning out its closet and the closets of some of its private collectors as it auctions off select bits of Ferrari history, including a Le Mans-winning race car driven by Phil Hill.


RM Auctions says it will sell the only 4.0-liter Ferrari Testa Rossa ever built at auction on May 20. The auction will take place in Maranello in a series of sales dubbed “Leggenda e Passione,” and will also highlight several other important Ferraris from the marque’s racing history.


The 4.0-liter car is the last Testa Rossa built by Ferrari, the auction house says. The ’62 Ferrari 330 TRI/LM Testa Rossa is the last front-engine car to win atLe Mans, at the hands of Road & Track eminence Phil Hill and co-pilot Olivier Gendebein in their third Le Mans victory. It's owned today by a U.S. collector.


RM says that with the car’s provenance and unique place in history, it could fetch an estimated $8 million to $10 million at auction. It will be offered alongside a 1970 512 S raced by Luigi Chinetti; a 1953 340MM with a coachbuilt Touring Spyder body; a ’66 Dino 206 SP, fully restored; and a 1997 Formula One car.
