Is this the world's most expensive Ferrari?

World's most expensive Ferrari

One of only 39 Ferrari 250 GTOs produced between 1962–1964 sold for £20.2 million, or nearly $32 million, says Talacrest, the self-dubbed number one classic Ferrari market. This makes the 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO the second most expensive car ever sold behind a 1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic that sold for $30–$40 million (no exact figure has ever been confirmed) in 2010; it would also be the most expensive Ferrari ever sold.

The Ferrari was owned by a businessman named John Hunt, who purchased the car in 2008 for $24.7 million; that’s a nearly 30 percent markup in five years’ time. At its launch, the 250 GTO came with a price tag of a £6,000.

You may recall that Chris Evans, a disc jockey in the United Kingdom, purchased a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO for £12 million, or approximately $17.7 million in 2010, the year of purchase. In 2009, a 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa sold for more than $12,000,000, setting a then world record for a car sold at an auction.
