An auction in Monaco will host the sale of an extremely rare racing Ferrari. The 1948 Ferrari 166 Spider Corsa 'Fontana' (above) will go on sale during the May event, expected to fetch up to £1.5m.

The history of this particular car makes it so special. Chassis number 012l, it was the sixth Corsa built, racing initially for Scuderia Ferrari, with highlights including two Mille Miglias and two Targa Florios.
