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.

10 Green Cars that Don’t Suck: Eco-Excellence at All Price Points

Aug 27 2014 5:19pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Mix pious intentions with dreary mechanical bits and then stir in some driving misery, and the result is a “green car.” Green not in the color of its paint, but in the environmental virtue of its engineering and marketing. Green as in economical with fuel but stingy on fun, great with emissions but lousy to pilot. Green cars are hybrids, diesels, and electric cars stripped to the point of making a rotted ox cart seem luxurious. Except t ...

Ferrari 458 M spotted, is there a turbo under there?

Aug 27 2014 4:03pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Spy Photos, Coupe, Performance, Ferrari, Design/Style While it's still absolutely beautiful and a performance marvel (especially in Speciale trim), the Ferrari 458 Italia has to keep up with the rapidly evolving world in supercars if it wants to continue its success. Ferrari seems to know that it can't sit back and relax, because we're now seeing a disguised 458 testing for the second time. Since we first saw it, rumor has emerged that it updated 458, reportedly c ...

Here's Why You Need To Go To The Henry Ford Museum RIGHT NOW!

Aug 27 2014 9:19am CDT | Source: Jalopnik

Friends, Family, Fellow Jalops I come bearing urgent news. The car you're looking at in the above picture is the GT40 Mark I Chassis # 1075 currently on display at The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI. Why is this significant? Because it won at Le Mans. Once? HA! No, that chassis won TWICE. In 1968 and 69. It was the first car in history to win Le Mans two times consecutively using the same chassis. This is no small feat. This also makes it one of (if not THE) most valuable ...
