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.

950-hp Ferrari LaFerrari + Monza + Drifting = Must Watch Video

Oct 23 2014 12:14pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

“A Ferrari LaFerrari drifting around Monza’s Parabolica turn at full throttle” sounds like a gearhead’s MadLibs dream sentence. Dream no more, friends. Now you can see (and hear) this fantasy for real. Good speakers or headphones are a must. With a 6.3 liter V-12 and HY-KERS electric assist combining for an astounding 950 horsepower, the LaFerrari has the means to achieve truly ludicrous, lurid, tire-annihilating drifts. A sideways-sliding Ferrari is always a sight to b ...
