Cars at Auction

Ferrari 250 GTO
The Ferrari 250 GTO is a racing car which was produced by Ferrari from 1962 to 1964. In total, 39 250 GTOs were manufactured.

In 2004, Sports Car International nominated it the top sports car of all time. Motor Trend Classic placed the 250 GTO first on a list of the "Greatest Ferraris of All Time." Popular Mechanics named it the "Hottest Car of All Time."
In 2012 the 1962 250 GTO made for Stirling Moss became what was then the world's most expensive car in history, selling for $35m.
In October 2013, Connecticut-based car collector Paul Pappalardo sold chassis number 5111GT privately for a reported $52 million.
The world record for a car at auction was broken for the fifth time in six years on August 14, 2014 when a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO sold at Bonham's Quail Auction for US$34,650,000 (US$38,115,000 including buyers premium).

The car sold from the Maranello Rosso Collection and stamped with chassis number ‘3851 GT’ was the 19th 250 GTO Berlinetta made by Ferrari and completed on Sept. 11, 1962.
The car was delivered to the leading French racing driver Jo Schlesser, co-driven by himself and French ski Champion Henri Oreiller in the 1962 Tour de France Automobile race.

Oreiller later crashed the car during a race at Montlhery Autodrome, south of Paris, and died of his injuries in hospital. A newspaper report at the time said the Ferrari careered off the track and flipped twice after a tire burst.
The car was repaired by Ferrari in Italy and was sold to Italian driver Paolo Colombo in time for the start of the 1963 competition season.

In 1965 young Fabrizio Violati, the scion of a wealthy Italian family, bought the car. “I saved the car from scrap and hid it from my parents. I only drove it at night so nobody would see me”, Bonhams quoted him as saying.

World's most Expensive Cars at Auction

1957 Ferrari 335 S Spider Scaglietti
One of the rarest Ferraris in existence has become the most expensive car ever sold at auction. Price tag: £25 million, or about $36 million. Only four of the 1957 Ferrari 335 S Spider Scaglietti were ever made.

Auction house Artcurial Motorcars put the vehicle on the block during its annual Retromobile sale in Paris last week.
A 4.1-litre V12 engine gives the car a massive 400 horsepower, enabling it to reach a top speed of 190 miles per hour—unheard of at the time.

The car won the Cuban Grand Prix in 1958, finished second in the Mille Miglia, and set a lap record at Le Mans during its racing career, having been driven by the likes of Stirling Moss and Mike Hawthorn.
