1962 Ferrari 250 GTO becomes the Most Expensive car to be sold at an auction

Craig McCaw, a Car collector from Washington has become the owner of the world’s most expensive car after he bought the car in a private transaction last month for $35 million. The car is a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO which was made for Formula One legend Stirling Moss. This apple green Ferrari is one of the only 39 GTOs made from 1962 to 1964 and was built specifically to be raced at Le Mans by Moss but he was not able to drive the car due to his career-ending crash so it was driven by his teammate driver Innes Ireland.

The Ferrari was sold by a Dutch businessman Eric Heerema, owner of the Nyetimber vineyard in Sussex who himself has acquired this classic 1962 GTO for just $8.5 million about 10 years ago from a Japanese collector Yoshiho Matsuda. The Ferrari got the tag of world’s most expensive car to be sold at an auction from a 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO which was sold for $32 million back in February.
