1962 Ferrari 250 GTO sells for world record $35 million [Video]
In the world of collectible cars, Ferrari has been in the news more than once in the past few months. And now a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO has sold for a world record $35 million. The car was originally made for racing legend Stirling Moss, but he never raced the car due to a career-ending crash at the Goodwood circuit in Sussex on April 23, 1962, just before he could take the wheel of his new Ferrari. The car was painted in the distinctive pale-green livery of Moss’s UDT- Laystall race team.
The famous green car was one of 39 GTOs that were produced from 1962 to 1964. According to Bloomberg, two specialist traders confirmed the sale of the car that was listed in May’s high-end sales at anamera.com, a website for classic car dealers. They also report that the car was sold by Eric Heerema, a Dutch-born businessman who lives in England. The buyer is American classic car collector Craig McCaw.
