Chassis: 550A-0145
Believed to be the penultimate 550A produced, this example was a works car used for four events during the 1958 season. It achieved a class win at the Nürburgring and at Goodwood. Chassis 0145 was also used in the Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort. Although it finished 11th and last, it does hold the distinction as being the only 550A to ever compete in a Grand Prix. At the end of the season, it was sold to North America, where it remained for several decades. Still in remarkably original condition, it was acquired by German collector Burkhard von Schenk in 1991. It was subsequently owned by an Italian collector, who regularly campaigned it in the Mille Miglia retrospective.
