The 1956 Ferrari Testa Rossa boasts a 2.0 liter S4 engine that has the capacity to travel at 257 km/h at 190 horsepower. While the original list price is unclear, it certainly cannot match up to the whopping $5 million dollar price tag attached to the 1956 Ferrari Testa Rossa.
The 1956 Aston Martin DB3-S
The 1956 Aston Martin is a sleek speed car with a powerful 210 horsepower, 2.9 liter S6 engine. This powerful sports car has the capacity to travel at 233km/h. This car is certainly priceless and is not listed on any auction sites for sale but it is certain to be estimated in the millions.
The 1956 Mercury Montclair
With 50,562 Mercury Montclair made in 1956, this car was a popular choice. The popularity of the car should not fool you as this car gained muscle car status.
