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.

General Pedaler: GM Introduces Free Bike Sharing Program at Michigan Tech Center

Sep 1 2014 3:36pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Look out, Google: Enough General Motors employees wanted to arrive at meetings covered in sweat that the company has introduced a bike-sharing program. Okay, a desire for damp, winded employees probably had less to do with GM’s decision than the rising popularity of active-workplace programs, but still—up here in Michigan, it’s pretty warm outside. Employees can now pedal across 330 acres of GM’s technical center in Warren, Michigan, instead of dri ...

Porsche introduced the 911 Targa back in 1967, four years after the regular 911 went on sale.
