Auction Block: 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO

This juicy red Ferrari is among the rarest cars of all time. If this Ferrari were a steak, it would be so rare that you could still see the hemoglobin dribble out in ruby globules as you sliced in. Simply put, it’s one of, if not most rare cars on Earth, and a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO gem is heading to auction.

A machine of speed and grace worthy of cinematic documentation, the Ferrari GTO was an all-too short lived line of spectacular cars that lasted from 1953 to 1964. The 1962 model essentially marked the final and most dazzling iteration. During its 11 year reign, only 36 models were ever produced, and none as fetching as this marque, which has been preserved in flawless condition. The holy grail of the auto-world, as treasured by car collectors as the Honus Wagner is by baseball card enthusiasts, or Action Comics no. 1 for comic book fanatics, this particular 1962 model bears chassis no. 3413 GT. It came into the world as a Series I car, racing in 10 races in 1962 (nine of which it won, only coming in 2nd once) and claiming the Italian National GT championship that year. The most valuable car ever publicly offered, some estimate that the ’62 GTO could fetch as much as $45 million. If you have the necessary funds, this Ferrari is a brilliant supercar to sink your teeth into.
