1962 Ferrari 250 GTO – world’s most expensive car

Ferrari models aren’t cheap. They’re actually quite expensive. Oh and if the new ones are pricey, the old ones are actually ridiculous.

A new sale recently has changed the record books as a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO was reportedly sold for a whopping $35 million.

Why? Because apart from being an incredibly rare and special Ferrari this particular one was actually built for Stirling Moss.

He may not have managed to race it but this particular car has a few titles under its belt and is also special for the paint job it has.

We’re not looking at (yet another) red one but a lime green model which seems to be borrowed from the Lamborghini catalog.
