1962 FERRARI 250 GTO EXPECTED TO SET RECORD FOR MOST EXPENSIVE FERRARI
It seems that the Ferrari 250 GTO continues to set records every time one is sold. This has to be the most sought after example of the Prancing Horse currently being sold today. Several factors contribute to the popularity of the Ferrari 250 GTO. With only 39 examples in existence, the 250 GTO is an extremely rare item. Those wanting to add this item to their collection do not get many chances to buy one. Given that each hand-built model has its own idiosyncrasies, they are truly a one-of-one situation even with 39 examples.
This particular example features the wildly popular Ferrari red paint matched to a blue interior and is currently on sale in Germany for 47.6 million Euros – that comes to just a tad under $64 million. The sale of the car does include a 19 percent VAT, which would net the government approximately $10 million dollars in taxes.
