Chassis: 0670MDTR
Chassis 0670 MDTR was the sixth of a total of nineteen TRCs produced in 1957. It was sold to a Sicilian, who used the two litre machine in the final Mille Miglia. He finished twelfth overall and third in class. Passing through several hands it continued to be raced until it was acquired by Giulio Dubini in 1966. His family retained the car until 1998 when it was sold to Italian historic racer Corrado Cupellini. He campaigned chassis 0670 MDTR for the better part of five years before selling the car on the United States.

Its new American owner had the car meticulously restored by Bert Skidmore's Intrepid Motorcar Company. He repainted the car in its original two-tone finish of red with a yellow band. Since then it has been regularly shown and raced at events across the United States for several years. In 2006 the current owner acquired the car at RM's Monterey Sports & Classic Car auction for just shy of $2.3 million. Two years later he offered the car for the first time at Gooding's Pebble Beach Auction but refused a high bid of $3.2 million. The car will now be offered again at RM Auctions' Villa d'Este sale on May 21st. It is estimated to sell for EUR 2.6 - EUR 3.2 million.
