A 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder once owned and raced by Pablo Picasso’s son is for sale in Germany.
Completed on June 28 1955 the car has travelled the globe extensively. It was delivered to the U.S. west coast where its owner Jim Cook regularly raced it, taking fourth place at the 1960 Great Western Rallye, and a career best of first place at the 1960 Bonneville Nationals in the hands of his pal C. Pitt Browne.
The car was passed on through owners in Los Angeles and Japan, where it underwent a full restoration, before finding its way to France and into the collection of Claude Picasso. Picasso competed in the Targa Florio and Le Mans Classic during the 1990s and then the 550 continued its journey through several high profile owners including French singer Floret Pagny and luxury macaron magnate David Holder,
