Sold for $12,177,271 (€9,020,000) at 2009 Ferrari – Leggenda e Passione. This car (0714TR) is the fourth Testa Rossa built and the second customer car. Sold new to Piero Drogo in Modena, this car was immediately modified with air scoops beneath the doors to help cool the rear brakes. His first race was the 1958 1000 Kilometers at Buenos Aires, finishing fourth overall with co-driver Sergio Gonzalez. The car was later shipped back to Europe and competed in some minor events before being rebuilt and repainted red. It was later acquired in 1970 by Robert Dusek of Solebury, Pennsylvania, and restored to its original specification and color. After changing hands among several noted Ferrari collectors, it is once again shown in the black and red livery from the 1960s.
