The 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO you see below has just hit the market with a price tag that is even hard to say. It is asking for £45 Million which is R812 million at today’s exchange rate and if it sells at this price, it will become with most expensive car ever sold.
The car is with a Ferrari specialist in the UK and they claim that it is “the Holy Grail of classic cars.”
This particular example comes with a very special pedigree. Finished in metallic blue with a white stripe, it was completed in March 1962 and briefly used for development purposes by Ferrari at Monza. It’s the second of 39 cars built, but this one has the distinction of being the first 250 GTO to be raced. It was sold into private hands in 1962 and took part in that year’s Sebring 12 hours. Driven by Phil Hill and Olivier Gendebien, it finished first in class and second overall.
