20. 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder
Sale Price: $4,455,000
Auction: Gooding & Company, Pebble Beach 2018
This Porsche 550 Spyder was originally raced in 1955–56 by privateer racer Eldon C. Beagle with the original bill of sale, delivery letter from Jon von Neumann and photos of the car racing to document the history. The car is powered by a 1498cc double-overhead cam type 547 flat 4-cylinder engine with twin Weber 40 DCM 1 carburetors mated with a 4-speed manual transaxle. The engine and transmission numbers match the Porsche Kardex — the recordkeeping system used in the 1950s. The car has been part of the same collection for the past 20 years.
