They are the most desired, the most beautiful, and the most expensive cars in the world and very rarely do they ever come up for sale. When A Ferrari 250 GTO hits the auction block it is international news because there’s a virtual lock on the fact it will become the most expensive car ever sold. That honor currently goes to an old Mercedes that was sold a year or two ago for over $31-million but that’ll be spare change between the cushions when the 250 GTO you see below hits the block at Pebble Beach in August. More than one pretty knowledgeable outlet is predicting that the price could hit $50-million bucks. We could go through some awesome comparison about how many Camaro fifty million dollars would get you but that would be like comparing how many pounds of hors meat you can get as opposed to aged filet mignon. The 250 GTO is a study in awesome on all levels. From the sounds to the shapes, the car is unmatched before or since. I should probably mention that I like them.
If you want an idea of how much these things have come along (like all old race cars), I found an ad for a dude selling a real one in the back of a Motor Trend or something from the middle 1960s with an asking price of about $7,000. This one will go for $50-million or somewhere close. There’s few things on Earth that have appreciated like that! Adding to the mystique of this car is the fact that a guy died in it. A guy named Henri Oreiller crashed it and died during the 1962/63 campaign. The car was sent back to the factory and mended back to as new condition where it has remained ever since. In fact, the car has been owned by the same guy for more than 40 years and that man is now set for a payday of epic proportions.
