Ferrari 250 GTO Sells for $52 Million at Auction

Oct 4 2013, 1:00pm CDT | by

Could be the most expensive car ever purchased

It appears that a new record for the highest price for a vehicle sold at auction has been set. A 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO chassis number 5111GT has been sold at auction for the staggering price of $52 million. The vehicle on the Tour de France in 1963.

Rumors suggest the $52 million price tag and neither the buyer nor seller will confirm that price. If it's correct, it would be the most expensive car ever purchased. Another Ferrari, a 275 GTB / 4 NART Spyder was sold for $25 million not long ago.

The selling owner has apparently owned the record-setting Ferrari since 1974. It's to imagine paying $52 million for a single car.

Dodge has been deep in this whole promotional thing involving the one-last-go-’round Mötley Crüe and Gas Monkey guy Richard Rawlings, so it only makes sense that this build video of Challenger Hellcat VIN #001 was scored by the Crüe’s ’89 MTV staple, “Kickstart My Heart”. What’s more confusing is that after assembly and primer, a black Challenger rolls rolls out of the plant. Suddenly, a primed and masked car appears in a spray booth a ...

Filed under: Motorsports, Audi If you've been scratching your head wondering how - between Audi and Porsche - the Volkswagen Group could possibly support two rival top-tier LMP1 programs at Le Mans and the FIA World Endurance Championship, but stay out of Formula One entirely, you're not alone. In fact, Porsche was said to have been eying an F1 entry if Audi had internally blocked aspirations to return to Le Mans. But according to the latest rumors, it's Audi that's now pre ...

The Motown Mile is our playground at the Detroit City Airport where we put test cars through their paces. A typical Motown session produces two videos. One is of Larry hooning the crap out of the car, overlaid atop the car's actual lap time (no, the tail-waggy action isn't from the fast lap). Read more. ...
