At closed auctions, such cars cost much more

RM Sotheby’s auction house sold a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO for a record $51,705,000. It is stated that this car has become the most expensive in the world ever sold at public auction.

In 1962, this car was prepared directly at the factory for endurance racing, including Le Mans. To do this, the chassis was modified, the appearance was slightly redesigned and the standard three-liter engine was replaced with a larger 4-liter V12 from the Superamerica model.

The car debuted at the Nürburgring 1000 Kilometers, becoming the only 250 GTO in the works team that season. The Ferrari drivers were able to win their class and take second place in the overall standings.
