A blue 1958 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider was the most expensive car to sell at the annual autio auctions at Scottsdale, Arizona.
The Ferrari is extremely rare and is one of just 50 that were ever made. This particular example was fully restored to the highest degree in 2012 which probably helped the car smash through it’s estimated sale price of £4.2m and go on to hit an eye watering £5.2m ($8.25m)!
The auction also saw another Ferrari also go for £5.13m ($8.14m), this was a red 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione which has a 280 horsepower V12 engine.
The auction was run by Gooding & Company last Friday 18th January.
This is one Ferrari driving experience that only the owner is likely to get to enjoy so don’t go expecting to be able to drive one of these around Silverstone unfortunately!
