These Are The Most Expensive Vehicles Ever Auctioned Off–And Almost All Of Them Were Made By This Luxury Car Manufacturer
Luxury cars are one of the most sought-after status symbols in the world. And rare, vintage luxury cars are even more desired, especially by the rich and famous.
So, it’s not surprising that certain valuable models have been auctioned off to bidders for millions of dollars. Here are the most expensive ones ever to be sold.
1967 Ferrari 275 GTB /4*S N.A.R.T. Spider
Safe to say, the Italian luxury sports car manufacturer Ferrari sure knows how to make one of a kind vehicles that gearheads go after. Making only ten of the 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB /4*S N.A.R.T. Spider, the brand has been successful in creating an air of exclusivity in owning the car.
No wonder one of them fetched a whopping $27.5 million in 2013 when it was auctioned off by RM Sotheby’s. Of course, one might also attribute this high price to the vehicle’s excellent condition despite being built decades ago.
1956 Ferrari 290 MM
Another valuable Ferrari sold by RM Sotheby’s is the 1956 Ferrari 290 MM, which went for a slightly more expensive $28.05 million. The car is another valuable model because only four of these were ever made. It was actually the most expensive car sold at an auction during 2015.
1954 W196 Formula 1 Racer
This next car from the German manufacturer Mercedes-Benz is another record-breaker. In fact, the 1954 W196 Formula 1 Racer reportedly broke three when it was sold for $29.6 million back in 2013. It was declared the most expensive car auctioned that year, the most expensive car from the brand ever made, and the most expensive German-made car sold.
1957 Ferrari 335 Sport Scaglietti
Sold by Artcurial, Paris in 2016, the 1957 Ferrari 335 Sport Scaglietti fetched an almost unbelievable price tag of $35.7 million, which made it the most expensive car sold at an auction in the whole European continent. It’s worth noting though that its perceived value is derived more from the racing icons who have driven the car rather than its vintage appeal.
1962-63 Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta
Another red car to make the list is the 1962-63 Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta, sold by Bonhams back in 2014. During its initial release, the vehicle fetched a price of $18,000 in the United States. This is a far cry from the $38.15 million this specific car was eventually auctioned off decades later.
1962 Ferrari 250 GTO
Ferrari clinches the top spot with the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO. The car was sold by RM Sotheby’s for a jaw-dropping $48.4 in 2018. Although not as rare as some of the other Ferraris on the list, the 250 GTO is considered to be the ‘best classic racing car in the world’ by experts.
