The jury has spoken – Andreas Mohringer was awarded the Trofeo BMW Group on Sunday evening at the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este for his 1958 Ferrari 335 Sport, which was sculpted by Scaglietti. Wilhelm Schmid, CEO of A. Lange & Söhne, also presented Mohringer with this year’s winner’s watch.
At first glance, the silver-blue racer may look similar to the 250 Testa Rossa, but there is much more to it than that: the four-litre V12 boasts four camshafts instead of two and it boasts an impressive 430HP. Able to reach speeds of over 300kph, the 335 is widely considered the king of the front-engined Ferrari racing cars. Just three are known to remain, and all make a 250 GTO look quite pedestrian. This was a deserved winner!
