Without a doubt, the Ferrari 250 GTO is one of the world’s most coveted cars. Earlier this month, a 1963 example sold privately for nearly $80 Million dollars. So our friends at RM Sotheby’s have put a conservative estimate of $45 Million on a 1962 model. It will be the centerpiece of their Monterey Auction during Monterey Car Week in August.
Our friends over at Autoblog were first to notice this pristine prancing horse. This 250 GTO is chassis 3413 GT is just one of 36 examples, and it began life as a factory test car for Phil Hill at the Targa Florio. It was then sold to Edoardo Lualdi-Gabardi who won 9 out of 10 races in 1962. He sold it to Gianni Bulgari, the founder, and owner of Bulgari Jewelry. This car has complete documentation back to the factory, and it retains its original engine, transmission and differential. If you need a new daily driver, we’ll see you in Monterey. If you don’t need a race car, our dealers have a nice selection of Ferrari 250’s that are ready for you. Stay with us for all your RM Sothebys updates.
