1996 Ferrari F50 - $4.1m

Only 375 examples of the F50 were constructed between 1995 and 1997. When new, the F50 was available for a bargain basement $475k, but only to approved Ferraristi, who had to go through a factory-leasing program. Rear mid-mounted heart is a 4.7-liter, 60-valve V-12 that makes 513 hp at 8,000 rpm and 347 ft lbs of torque at 6,500 rpm. That is delivered to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox.
The F50 has become an almost religious relic among the Ferrari faithful. This iconic status is based on the fact that it is the last 'analog' V-12-powered Ferrari supercar. This example has covered only 1,318 kilometers (817 miles) in 26 years. It topped it's $2.9m to $3.8m estimate and sold for $4.1m.
