If you’ve got more than 50 million dollars to burn and a real affinity for Ferraris, you’re in luck. England-based Talacrest managed to get their hands on a rare, privately owned 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, and the seller is willing to part with it for the right price. Which, if estimates are correct, could reach as high as $56 million. That’s dollars. Fifty-six million dollars. For a car.
But not just any car. See, this particular Ferrari is the second of only 39 GTOs ever made, which makes it a rare item for the moneyed collector, gearhead or sheikh. And it was the first such model to race, finishing second at the 1962 Sebring 12 Hours and sixth at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Just be glad it didn’t win, as that might have increased the price by a few million. If, by the way, you’d like to throw your wallet in the ring, you can get in touch via the website.
As for the specifics, the gorgeous car is painted in its original blue metallic with a central white stripe and offered in left-hand drive. The engine is a three-liter V12 and the transmission is, of course, manual.
So it’s best if you already know how to drive stick.
