RM Sotheby’s has secured an ex-works 1956 Ferrari 290 MM by Scaglietti, chassis 0626, for its “Driven by Disruption” sale, taking place December 10 in New York City. Built for racing legend and five-time World Champion Juan Manuel Fangio to compete in the 1956 Mille Miglia, 0626 was driven by a “who’s who” of motorsport in period. Career highlights include 1st overall in the 1957 World Championship Buenos Aires 1000 KM. Fully documented and never crashed, 0626 is one of the world’s most significant and original competition Ferraris.
