Behold: the 1956 Porsche 550 RS Spyder – Stuttgart’s Holy Grail racer of which only 90 were ever made (including the ‘Little Bastard’ that killed James Dean).

Currently up for auction (likely accepting bids over €5,000,000) at Sothebys in Paris.

    No wonder James Dean died in it, sure the other driver who crashed into him wouldn’t know which was the front and back. Stoopid car.

      When two cars collide, it’s generally called a “crash”. Might have been Dean’s primary fault, but the other driver might have slowed down if he believed he was facing the front of the car. Instead, look at those pics above, the driver of the Ford probably thought he was facing the rear so didn’t brake.
