Rare Ferrari Sells at Auction for Staggering $8.2 Million
A rare midnight blue 1958 Ferrari recently sold at an auction in Arizona for a staggering $8.2 million dollars, making it one of the priciest supercars in the world.
The 250 GT LWB California Spider is only one of 50 ever made and went for much more than its estimated price at an auction held in Scottsdale by Gooding & Company. Amazingly, the car has had only three owners in the past forty years.
According to the auction house website, this rare model has "Bleu Sera Metallizzato livery," a 2,953 CC SOHC Tipo 128D 60° V-12 Engine and three Weber 36 DCL3 carburetors. We're not entirely sure what any of that means, but we definitely like the sound of it.
Despite the serious dent this thing would put in your wallet, it still isn't the most expensive Ferrari ever sold. Last year, a 1962 250 GTO built for race driver Stirling Moss was sold to a collector for a stupefying $34.9 million.
We're not greedy. We'll take the cheaper one.
