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.
