Additional Information
The 857 S is a competition car produced by Ferrari in 1955 in four specimens, to date there are only two restored and certified directly by Ferrari Spa 'of Maranello; this car has an incredible sport pedigree as it was guided by pilots of the likes of P.Taruffi, E. Castellotti, M. Trintignant, P. Collins, L. Klemantaski, A. De Portago, P. Hill, G. Greenspun, etc. And has been consistently manicured. The 857 S was built to counter the Mercedes-Benz in the competitions of the time. The Ferrari cars of those years, that is, the 750 Monza, 118 LM and 121 LM did not succeed in realizing this purpose, and decided to launch the model in question. In the early 1950s, Ferrari used and developed mainly two types of racing engines: the four-cylinder inline designed by Aurelio Lampredi and the V12 by Gioacchino Colombo. These two types of engines possessed features that made them prefer according to their degree of development. For example, one of them was fuel consumption, and the former was less "thirsty" than the second. 
For these reasons Enzo Ferrari gave a boost to the development of the four-cylinder in-line. In addition, 1952 Formula One World Formula 1 championship rules were applied, and this gave a strong boost to the evolution of this type of engine. The first that was developed, a 2 L displacement, was successfully mounted on the 500 F2, which won two World Formula 1 titles (1952 and 1953). A series of developments led to the construction of two other types of four-cylinder in-line engines, each with a displacement of 2.5L and 3L respectively. They were installed on three competition models: the first on 625 TF and the second on the 735 S and 750 Monza. An additional evolution of this four-cylinder in-line was that mounted on the "857 S". It had a displacement of 3.4 L, and this was the highest value achieved by this type of Ferrari propulsion.
