It might be impossible to take a bad photo of a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO; the iconic curves look great in any situation.
But we’re not here to talk about just any Ferrari 250. The specific car we’re here to talk about, chassis 4135 GT, placed fourth at its first race. That race just happened to be LeMans in 1963. Next, it won the 10-day Tour de France rally in 1964. The car has raced around the world and in a post on FerrariChat, it’s said that it has now sold for $80,000,000 (stated that it was “a bit less than CHF 80 million in the forum) in a private sale.
This sale, if true, breaks all previous records, including the famous $38 million sale of a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO. According to forum posts, the new owner of the car is David MacNeil, the CEO of WeatherTech, but this is not confirmed.
To give you an idea of how loved the Ferrari 250 is, below is the video of the previously mentioned 1962 250 GTO selling for $38 million at auction in 2014. If you’re looking for your own Ferrari 250, click the link below and stay with us for all your Ferrari news.
