Its uniqueness is further highlighted by its original chassis, body, and engine.

The NART Spyder’s remarkable history includes a memorable parade lap with Sir Stirling Moss at a Can-Am Race at Bridgehampton. Over the years, it has graced various prestigious events, from Pebble Beach to Salon Privé in London, showcasing its impeccable restoration in its striking Argento paint with a Rosso interior.

The car’s provenance is as rich as its engineering, having been cherished by a range of owners, including celebrities and philanthropists. It underwent meticulous restoration to preserve its legacy and condition, ensuring its story continues to enchant car enthusiasts worldwide.
