The 275 GTB, 250 GT Cabriolet kept their side while a Sport Prototype 333 SP was awarded $ 2.09 million. Another queen of the circuits, the Porsche 956 (third built copy) that participated in endurance races from 1982 to 1984 at the hands of Jacky Ickx and committed by others in the plant, would reach $ 10,120,000, the Porsche RS 60 also by the beautiful figure of $ 5.4 million. But the big surprise was coming from a small Fiat bodied by Pinin Eden Roc Farina in 1956. This small recreational vehicle carried on a chassis 600 Multipla was awarded $ 660,000.
