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.

It’s . . . It’s Beautiful: Lamborghini Reveals 897-hp Asterion LPI 910-4 Hybrid Supercar!

Oct 1 2014 6:52pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Behold the Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4 hybrid, unveiled the day before the 2014 Paris auto show. Despite Lamborghini’s demure insistence that the Asterion is no more than a “Plug-in Hybrid technology demonstrator,” the reserved-for-an-exotic styling, production-friendly body contours, and hybrid powertrain perhaps hint at a different future. Unmistakably a Lambo from the front, the car’s shapes g ...
