Three days ago we published the TOP TEN cars ever sold at auction. Then almost like fate a car that has the potential to take the top spot goes up for sale.
John Collins, who runs Ascot-based Ferrari specialist Talacrest in the UK is auctioning his Ferrari 250 GTO at a guide price of $56 MILLION. Whilst we may like to think John was inspired by our article John seems to lay the reasoning for the sale at Donald Trump’s door.
“After the US election, people are going to be looking at investing in assets and this is a lot better than a painting on the wall.”
It makes sense. The volatility in world markets since the Trump victory makes a 250 GTO a much more stable investment than say Facebook shares which have lost 20% of their value in the last couple of weeks.
So what exactly is it? Well, It’s a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, chassis number 3387 and the second 250 GTO to of been built – made extra special as it started its life as the 250 GTO test car. Every 250 GTO that was ever built and raced owes its DNA to this exact car.
Check out the images below, and just remember this car is 55 years old.
