1953 Porsche 550 Spyder Racer
Here is a car that is probably worth millions of dollars today, its the 1953 Porsche 550 Spyder which was first unveiled at the Paris Auto Show that year. It was developed because Porsche needed a race car more powerful than the Porsche 356. It features a lightweight aluminum body and is powered by four-cam Carrera flat four cylinders.

In 1956, Porsche started to produce the 550A, a slightly modified Spyder. It was a hit, shocking the entire world by winning in its first Appearance in Targa Florio, a brutal road race. It also humbled well-known and more powerful rivals such as Ferrari, Maseratti and Jaguar.
