Chassis: 0588M
The fourth and final 857 Sport produced, chassis 0588M was entered in the 1955 RAC Trophy by Ferrari. Unfortunately an accident in practice prevented it from participating in the race. The car was returned to Scaglietti for repairs and fitted with a unique 'fin' on the headrest before it was sold to American privateer entrant Jon Edgar. He entered the 857 Sport in 1956 for Jack McAfee and Carroll Shelby. Both drivers added several victories to the chassis' tally.

Early in 1957 0588M was acquired by Stan Sugerman, who campaigned the car himself and also entered it for McAfee and a young Richie Ginther. Like many of its exotic contemporaries, this 857 Sport had its high maintenance engine replaced with an American V8. The car subsequently passed into various hands, including of one Andy Warhol. In the early 1970s it returned to Europe and was raced with a 275 GTB V12 engine. Late in 2010, it was bought by DK Engineering and completely restored with a correct engine. Chassis 0588M was ready in time for the 2011 Goodwood Revival where it dominated the Earl of March Trophy until a low oil pressure warning prompted driver James Cottingham to pull into the pits.
