Bonhams will be auctioning off this 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO. It might just be the most anyone has paid for a car. According to estimates the final price could be as high as $75 million, according to Hagerty Group.
Last October a 1963 250 GTO sold for $52 million. Ferrari only built 39 examples of the 250 GTO. With a V12 engine producing 300 horsepower, its sole purpose was for racing.
