1956 Porsche 550 RS Spyder. One of Porsche's most sought-after models, the 550 RS was the company's first real racing car. Only 90 examples were made, each with lightweight aluminum bodywork, a tiny 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine... and not much else. It was simplicity itself, and remains a timeless classic – made only more famous by James Dean who died behind the wheel of his.

This highly original 1956 Porsche 550 RS Spyder fell just short of its pre-sale estimate, but still sold for enough to set a new record for the highly sought-after classic.
