PARIS (Reuters) - A 1957 Ferrari 335 Sport Scaglietti was sold for a record 32 million euros ($35.6 million) at an auction in Paris on Friday.

Some of the most famous drivers of the time raced at the car's wheel and the Italian manufacturer won the Constructors' World Championship title in 1957.

The previous record was held by another Ferrari, a 250 GTO which went for 28.5 million euros in 2014, Managing Director for Artcurial Motocars auction house Matthieu Lamoure said.
