Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Best of Show: Ferrari 375 MM Scaglietti

For the first time in recent history, a post-War car has won the coveted ‘Best of Show’ at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. It was also the first time in the 64-year history of the event that a Ferrari was named ‘Best In Show.’

The winning Ferrari 375 MM Scaglietti belongs to collector former Microsoft President (and current board member) Jon Shirley. He has previously won at Pebble Beach with ahis Alfa Romeo 8C 2900 Touring Coupé in 2008.

The 375 MM is one of only five of its kind still on the road, despite having been raced in competitions. The original Spyder built by Pininfarina was in a severe accident. Carrozzeria Scaglietti constructed the form seen below some years ago on the original frame.
