A very rare – and very expensive – Ferrari 250 GTO has just changed hands through private treaty at a price believed to be in excess of $20 million.
It’s incredibly rare to see a Ferrari 250 GTO for sale. And even if one is ‘available’ you’re not going to find it on Autotrader or James List. You’ll only find out if you know who to contact. The high-end brokers who know the owners and are trusted with the sale; the handful of auction houses who deal at this level. That’s where you need to go to buy a car like this.
R.M. Auctions is one of that handful of auction companies who deal at this level. And they’ve just placed a Ferrari 250 GTO with a client. Happy buyer and happy seller, no doubt. Even if the price (which hasn’t been disclosed) is over $20 million. Which it will have been, even in these recession-constrained times.
This particular Ferrari 250 GTO (pictured above) is a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO (chassis no. 4675 GT), one of only thirty-six 250 GTOs originally produced and one of a limited few with Series II GTO bodywork. To say it is coveted is an understatement. We can think of one ‘Ginger-DJ’ who will have changed in to a very sorry shade of green at this announcement.
Max Girado – R.M.’s Euro M.D. – said:
“The exclusivity of Ferrari’s 250 GTO cannot be understated. As they rarely come to market, new owners become part of a very exclusive ‘club’ and are welcomed with open arms at literally any of the world’s great concours events, races and rallies. We are pleased to have been able to unite this exceptional car with a new and immensely enthusiastic owner. It’s fantastic that this car will now be used in earnest on the classic car scene around Europe.”
The commission on the deal will also have brought a smile to Max’s face.
