Ferrari 250 GTO Sells for $52 Million at Auction

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.
