Ferrari 159 Sport
The Ferrari 159 S was the second Ferrari vehicle and succeeded the Ferrari 125 S that had won six of 14 races earlier in 1947. This car is very rare with only two 159S ever built. One of these rebuilt as a Ferrari 166 Spyder Corsa, and as of 2012, the oldest remaining Ferrari. The 159 S made its debut in the Coppa Acerbo in Pescara on 12 october 1947 and with Raymond Sommer behind the wheel it was victoious in the Torino Grand Prix.
