1956 Porsche 550 Syder

A ‘barn find’ as they’re called don’t come often, but when they come like this it’s all worth the while. Porsche built only 90 examples of the 550 Spyder, making each one desirable. This one is among the best. Found in a barn in Switzerland where it’d been sitting for three decades, it was owned by a string of race car drivers, including Rita Rampinelli, Heinz Schiller, and Jo Siffert, all of whom used it in competition. Somewhere along the way it was updated to help keep it competitive, being fitted with a Porsche RS60 body and a new factory engine. While it certainly shows its age (it was found in a barn, after all) its rich pedigree makes it a great candidate for careful restoration. Put your bid in now, starting at £1.2M+ Goodingco.com
