The very first 410 S built, this was a pair of 'Speciales', equipped with the single-plug V12. Fitted with a unique Scaglietti body, complete with a potato-chipper grille, it was sold new to American real-estate developer Tony Parravano. Following the cancellation of the Carrera PanAmericana, chassis 0592CM's debut was postponed until the February 1956 race at Palm Springs. Here it was raced to victory by Carroll Shelby. The very powerful Ferrari was only used only twice again.

By early 1957, Parravano ran into trouble with the IRS over back-taxes. Instead of paying his dues, he fled the country for Mexico, taking several cars with him, including the 410 S, which were put in storage. Even though the legal issues were eventually settled by Parravano's family, Tony Paravano had disappeared from the face of the earth in 1960. Following its spell in Mexico, it was eventually acquired in 1971 by noted Ferrari collector Robert N. Dusek. Intimidated by the Ferrari's sheer power, he only drove the car a handful of times during his 38-year ownership.

Only raced three times in period and rarely used since, it has survived in remarkable original condition. All major components down to the wheels are still on the car. Now part of a European collection, it has been consigned to the August 2014 Rick Cole Monterey Auction. This unique sale allows bidders to place bids until August 17 at midnight PST. The bids can be monitored on a proprietary smartphone application.
