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.
This particular 250 GTO, chassis number 3851GT, was delivered straight from the factory to Jo Schlesser, who drove it in the 1962 Tour de France Automobile race. The car was sold to Fabrizio Violati in 1965.
