The World’s Most Expensive Car?

Posted on August 12th, 2014 by Goldman Buyer

In the market for a new vehicle? A 1962 red Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta may become the most expensive car in the world when it is offered at auction this Thursday in Carmel, California.

The coupe raced in the 1962 Tour de France Automobile race, where it placed second. Fabrizio Violati purchased it in 1965, and was the fourth and last owner. Violati came from a family who made its money in mineral water bottling and distribution, as well as agriculture, in Italy. He passed away in 2010.

Bonhams is offering this Ferrari at the vintage car event, the same that raked in $312 million last year. It is estimated that the Berlinetta will sell for somewhere between $60 million and $75 million, breaking the previous record held by a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO that sold for $52 million in October.

A variety of other vintage cars will be offered as well, including a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 once owned by actor Steve McQueen, estimated to sell for $8 million to $12 million.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I recently worked with Chicago Gold Gallery to design an engagement ring. From picking out the stone to designing the setting, it was a wonderful experience to say the least. Thank you so much for your help!"

Can't say enough about this place.

Recently took my family of 4 for a week to Chicago for a family vacation. We were on a limited budget but being lifelong Cub fans I thought it would be a great treat for my kids ages 7 and 10 to go to a game that we hadn't planned for...

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a diamond ring that I wanted to sell and they gave me top dollar for it. They were so nice and I would do business with them again.

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
