And this was undoubtedly the highlight.<br /><br />Bearing the chassis number 0384 AM, this 1954 Ferrari 375-Plus has a storied racing history, competing that year in such events as the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/le+mans/">24 Hours of Le Mans</a>, the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/mille+miglia/">Mille Miglia</a> and the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/silverstone/">Silverstone</a> endurance race, where the late <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/06/17/jose-froilan-gonzalez-ferraris-first-f1-race-winning-driver-p/">Jos&eacute; Froil&aacute;n Gonzalez</a> drove it to victory. One of only five made, the 375 Plus packed a 4.9-liter V12 with 330 horsepower under aluminum <em>barchetta</em> bodywork by Pininfarina. It was subsequently owned by Kleenex scion Jim Kimberly, trading hands between owners on both sides of the Atlantic and was the subject of a <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2010/08/17/npr-fight-erupts-over-ownership-of-stolen-1954-ferrari-375-pl/">legal dispute over its ownership</a> four years ago.<br /><br />With the dispute now resolved and after heated competition between two bidders, the Ferrari finally sold for &pound;10.7 million, equivalent to $18.2 million at today's rates and accounting for nearly half of the day's sales totals. Other highlights included a 1902 De Dietrich 16-HP "Paris-Vienna" Rear-Entrance Tonneau and a a '75 <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/lamborghini+countach/">Lamborghini Countach</a>, each of which sold for around $1.7 million - the latter eclipsing the example that Bonhams also <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/06/09/lamborghini-countach-periscopica-bonhams-record-auction/">recently sold</a> for $1.2 million.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/07/03/1954-ferrari-375-plus-18-million-record-goodwood-auction/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>1954 Ferrari 375-Plus sells for record $18 million at Goodwood</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/07/03/1954-ferrari-375-plus-18-million-record-goodwood-auction/">1954 Ferrari 375-Plus sells for record $18 million at Goodwood</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Thu, 03 Jul 2014 17:14:00 EST.
