Recently we told you about the 1936 Bugatti Type 57SC which was sold by Gooding and Company, reportedly for $30-$40 mil, to become the world’s most valuable car. Now though RM Auctions announced that they secured a private treaty sale for the 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO chassis number 4675 GT. They have not announced the price, but experts suggest that it should be well over $30 million. Do we have a new world’s most expensive car?!
Apart form the business though, this Ferrari is more deserving than the Bugatti to be the most valuable car in the history. OK, it’s not just as rare, 36 units of this model were produced, but it’s unbelievably pretty and has tons of racing pedigree. And with 320 hp it can do 174 mph! Of course it is not advised to try it in a 50 year old car that costs $30+ mil, but it can!
“The exclusivity of Ferrari’s 250 GTO cannot be understated. As they rarely come to market, new owners become part of a very exclusive ‘club’ and are welcomed with open arms at literally any of the world’s great concours events, races and rallies. We are pleased to have been able to unite this exceptional car with a new and immensely enthusiastic owner. It’s fantastic that this car will now be used in earnest on the classic car scene around Europe,” said Max Girardo, Managing Director of RM Europe.
