In 1962 Ferrari GTO has been sold for $35 million, making it the most luxurious car in the world, reports boomerang. The record cost conceals the $32 million paid for a 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO back in February and the $30-34 million dipped out for a 1936 Bugatti model 57SC Atlantic back in 2010.
The 250 GTO in query is frame number 3505GT and was made especially for the famous Stirling Moss. While Moss never actually finished up racing the car (a career-ending crash in April of 1962 protected him from getting behind the wheel), it has a moderately important race the past with numerous wins. 3505GT also competed in the 1962 24 Hours of Le Mans, even though it ruined the contest with a DNF. The car stands out along with the other 250 GTOs gratitude to its distinctive lime-green colors.
Wonderfully, the price of this exacting car has enhanced tenfold since 1996, when it was purchased for $3.5 million. From there the car has altered hands a few times, with the most current owner, a Dutch businessman, purchasing it for $8.5 million about a decade ago. The 250 GTO's current owner, car collector Craig McCaw, earned his wealth by selling a telecommunications company to AT&T for $11.5 billion again in 1993.
We most recently saw the car at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance last year, where it was displayed as division of the 250 GTO's 50th anniversary function.
