Car collectors take their hobby extremely seriously. When the following vintage automobiles hit the auction block, the winning bids proved just that. These are the six most expensive antique cars ever sold.
6. 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Speciale
Sold for: $26.4 million
Sold in 2014, this automobile is just one of three models built. It was designed as a race car, but was only ever used on the road.
5. 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 S NART Spider
Sold for: $27.5 million
Only 10 models were produced, and this particular one remained in the same family until it was sold in an August 2013 auction.
4. 1956 Ferrari 290 MM
Sold for: $28.05 million
This particular car—with serial number 0626—has a long racing history and was purchased in December 2015.
3. 1954 Mercedes-Benz W196
Sold for: $29.65 million
Sold in July 2013, this Mercedes Formula One car had a victorious racing career in the mid-1950s.
2. 1957 Ferrari 335 S
Sold for: $35.71 million
One of just four such vehicles produced, this car (pictured above) was sold at a Paris auction in February of 2016.
1. 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO
Sold for: $38.12 million
Perhaps surprisingly, the vintage car that ranks as the most expensive was actually crashed twice during its racing days.
