A piece like this really revs the engines of modern day treasure hunters. This 1950 Ferrari 166MM Barchetta was resting quietly in a barn in Italy before its exciting discovery, where it was purchased for the trivial sum of $8,000. Its discovery made waves in Ferrari collectors circles, as this was the vehicle that made Ferrari an iconic brand. After being shipped and managed by a group of resellers, the car finally sold for over $1,000,000 to collector Manny Del Arroz. Today, this Ferrari 166M is a hot topic on vintage luxury car shows like the Palo Alto Concours d’Elegance.
