The World’s Most Expensive Car

And you thought the Bugatti Veyron was expensive. This 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO, while making the Veyron look like a Yugo, reportedly sold for $52 million. That number is staggering so we will write it out. $52,000,000. Who sold their soul to the devil to buy this, you ask? Well, the name isn’t released but they did just acquire 1 of just 39 GTOs made in 1963, specifically for GT racing. Largely considered the most prized of all Ferraris, this particular GTO took first place in the 1963 Tour de France road race. And with this sale, it becomes the most expensive automobile. Original sticker price, by the way, was about $18,000 and required approval by no other than Enzo Ferrari himself.

    Enzo Ferrari is no longer among us, maybe Piero had to give approval on this one…

    I believe the article meant when the car was purchased new from the factory in 60’s.

    Benjamin Shalom Bernanke bought this with his golden parachute. Read about the conspiracy to create the Fed in the book “The Creature from Jekyll Island.”
