5 Most Expensive Cars Sold at Auction

By on February 5, 2015

#4: 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Speciale – $26.4 million

In 2014, this vintage Ferrari also sold for an insane price at auction, commanding $26.4 million from the lucky winner at an auction held via RM Auctions.

The 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Speciale is a road-legal version of the Ferrari 275 race car that placed third overall at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1965 in France.

No other car quite like this one is still around today, and its rarity certainly was a big reason for its astronomical value.

The 1964 275 GTB/C Speciale is equipped with a 3.3-liter, V-12 engine which produces 320-hp, which is not bad for a car made over 50 years ago, to say the very least.

The flawless condition of this car, combined with its rarity, combined to make its sale one of the most expensive ever.

 

#3: 1967 Ferrari 275GTS/4 N.A.R.T. Spider – $27,500,000

If you’re noticing a theme here, vintage Ferrari’s tend to sell for a whole lot of money. One year before the 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Speciale sold for $26.4 million at an RM Auction, the 1967 Ferrari 275GTS/4 N.A.R.T. Spider sold for $27.5 million in 2013 at an RM Auction.

The 1967 Ferrari 275GTS/4 N.A.R.T. Spider was estimated to sell for about $15 million, but it blew that figure out of the water, with its final sale price nearly doubling the prognostications.

The N.A.R.T. (North American Racing Team) Spider is truly one of a kind, and its value was increased by the fact that the vehicle only had one owner in its history.

This glorious antique Ferrari was auctioned off by the family of owner Eddie Smith six years after Smith’s death, and they generously decided to donate all the proceeds of the auction to charity.

Some charity was very happy to have the $27.5 million that this treasure of a vehicle fetched.
