$52 Million 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO: Most Expensive Car Ever

Dec 4, 2019

Furthering the long debate that the Ferrari 250 GTO is the most sought after vehicle on the automotive scene, this beautiful 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO just broke the world record for the most expensive car ever sold, fetching a price tag of $52 million.

Purchased by Greenwich, Connecticut based car collector Paul Pappalardo back in 1974, this gorgeous 2-door is one of just 39 models built for specific purposes during the years 1962 to 1964. This particular model won the 1963 Tour de France distance race, which most certainly added to the vehicle’s overall value. So what was the most expensive car ever sold before this classic? That’s easy – it was also a Ferrari 250 GTO once owned by Sir Stirling Moss. Holding down the two top slots for most valuable vehicles, it’s hard to argue that this bad boy isn’t the most collectible vehicle of all time. [Via]
