The Ferrari 250 GTO is unquestionably one of the most desirable cars, in the world.

In the last five years alone, one was auctioned for $38 million, another reportedly sold for $52 million, and still another sold in June 2018 for $70 million, making it the most expensive car ever sold.

Now RM Sotheby’s is offering a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO that could set a new world record. Scheduled for auction in Monterey on August 25, it was the third of only 36 GTOs ever built, test driven by renowned F1 champion Phil Hill, and raced to several victories including the Italian National GT Championship in 1962, where it won nine out of ten races.

While listed by RM Sotheby’s at $45 to $60 million, it is likely to sell for more. The auction house describes it as “the most valuable automobile ever offered for public sale” and Marcel Massini, a world-leading expert on collectible Ferraris as well as one of the inspectors of this particular vehicle, was recently quoted as saying, “We will see a GTO sell for $100 million in the next two to three years.”

The tremendous appeal of the Ferrari 250 GTO lies in its unparalleled beauty, exclusivity and racing success. Many consider it the most attractive Ferrari ever built. Its impeccable handmade quality has kept all 36 examples intact. And its victories (or first in class) in nearly 300 races worldwide make it one of the most celebrated racing cars in the annals of Ferrari history. Of course, the naturally aspirated V12 engine with addictive exhaust note is another feature that keeps collectors and enthusiasts dreaming.
