Most Expensive Ferraris in the World

Updated: August 27th, 2018

Ferrari is a symbol of luxury, wealth and ultimate performance and is recognized as one of the world’s most powerful brands. That prancing horse on a yellow badge is instantly recognizable by young and old everywhere. It is more than just a brand. But it’s not the new Ferraris that are the most expensive, it’s the old Ferrari’s that are often worth millions. The cars we’re going to be talking about here are on another level altogether and they have a lot of history. We are at the top end of the car buying world. These Ferrari models are expensive. Really, really, really expensive. I mean just insanely expensive. You cannot afford these cars. You can’t afford these cars even if you won the lottery. This is the rarified level only the richest people in the world can hope to participate in.

When you look at the list of the most expensive cars ever sold at auction, a staggering number of them are Ferraris. There is no other marquee with anywhere near that kind of firepower. For reference, it takes over $12 million to crack the top 20 most expensive Ferrari list whereas only one Porsche has ever sold for more than $12 million ever. The numbers are simply eye-watering.

As car fans most of us are too young to know Ferrari’s rich history. We grew up following Ferrari during its Formula 1 dominance in the Michael Schumacher era or maybe some of us are even old enough to remember wanting Magnum P.I’s Ferrari 308 or lusting over the Daytona Spider and Testarossa in Miami Vice. For the youngsters it is cars like the 458 and LaFerrari that struck a chord. But Ferrari history goes way further back than that. Ever since Enzo Ferrari founded this Italian car manufacturing company back in 1939, Ferrari has produced some of the best racing cars, sports prototypes and road cars on the planet. If you think today’s cars are awesome, the classic ones are even more impressive. It takes that pedigree and history for a car to make this list. History matters with these cars and the story behind them drives valuation. Whether they are mint-condition former racers or simply icons of their brand’s history, these cars are the most expensive to go under the hammer.

Ferrari GTOs are considered the biggest trophies in the car-collecting world for their rarity, power, beauty and success on the race track. Previously the highest price for a car was $52 million, paid for a 1963 Ferrari GTO in 2013. A 1962-63 GTO then sold at auction in California in 2014 for $38 million. Just this year (2018) the record was broken again, this time a $70 million GTO was sold to David MacNeil (founder of WeatherTech). That car (one of only 36 that were made) won the 1964 famed Tour de France race and came in fourth at Le Mans. It’s painted in silver and yellow and despite a winning record on the track was never crashed, unlike many other GTOs.

What is crazy is that we had initially created a top 10 list, then a top 20 and then we kept going till we realized at $4 million and 100 cars later we needed to call it a day. If you thought that was a lot, prepare yourself for RM Sotheby’s upcoming Monterey sale later this summer, where a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO by Scaglietti is set to go under the gavel. The auction house predicts the vehicle is the most valuable motor car ever offered at auction. Will we see a GTO sell for $100 million in the next few years. I wouldn’t bet against it.

So here you are, the 100 most expensive Ferraris ever sold.


Top 10 Most Expensive Ferraris

1. 1963 Ferrari GTO

Sources said the car was sold by a German collector to David MacNeil, the founder of WeatherTech.

It is no secret that Ferrari GTOs are considered the biggest trophies in the car-collecting world for their rarity, power, beauty and success on the race track. This GTO has some history too, having won the 1964 Tour de France race and came in fourth at Le Mans, Massini said. It’s painted in silver and yellow and despite a winning record on the track was never crashed, unlike many other GTOs.

There was no doubt that this car was going to go for a record. Formerly of the renowned Matsuda Collection in Japan this is a Ferrari Classiche certified can that retains all of its original mechanical components.

Like all other 250 LMs, chassis number 6105, the 23rd of just 32 examples constructed, was destined for the race track. The Ferrari was ordered through Maranello Concessionaires by noted privateer Ronald Fry, a descendant of the prominent Fry family, who had made their fortune through confectionaries and chocolates in England starting in the 18th century. Ronald Fry was a seasoned racer, and it was no secret that his favorite cars were those from Maranello. Fry had traded in his 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO (chassis number 3869GT), which he had campaigned quite successfully over the 1963 and 1964 seasons, and with the arrival of the 250 LM in mid-September, he was obviously quite excited to get his newest Ferrari out onto the track.

The Prancing Pony joins a collection of 13 classic Ferraris worth $18 million that will also be crossing the block at Pebble Beach – but this one on its own could be worth just as much.

Gooding and Co. had estimated that the Ferrari would go for anywhere from $12 to $16 million and
sold within the higher portion of its estimate for a final price of $14.52 million. And why shouldn’t it? The exterior is finished in a lightweight alloy bodywork with the number “98” emblazoned on the door panels and hood. It even wears a set of original Borrani aluminum wire wheels.

17. 1964 Ferrari 250 LM

Sold for $14,300,000

1964 Ferrari 250 LM sold

This 1964 Ferrari 250 LM by Carrozzeria Scaglietti is gorgeous. The Ferrari 250 LM is the epitome of design perfection. It is a purebred racing car that stirs the soul and enlivens the senses of not only the driver, but also the spectator, whether it’s being off-loaded from its transporter or roaring at breakneck speed down the famed Mulsanne Straight at Le Mans, in the middle of the night or in the pouring rain. Indeed, as Marcel Massini, the preeminent Ferrari historian declared, “Ferrari’s 250 LM is one of the most spectacular mid-engined sports cars ever built. A true competition race car rarer than the legendary 250 GTO, and the last Ferrari to win the gruelling 24-hour race at Le Mans.”

Certainly the defining decision that affects the 250 LM’s shape is the mid-engined configuration, which allowed the artisans at Scaglietti to wrap the bodywork around the chassis in a heretofore unseen manner. Add to that the state-of-the-art mechanical specifications of 320 horsepower, a rip-snorting Ferrari V-12 engine, a five-speed gearbox, four-wheel suspension, and disc brakes, and the resultant combination sees nothing but checkered flags whenever it takes to the track.

Chassis number 6107 is the 24th car of only 32 total 250 LM examples produced, and it is particularly special, because its first owner did not have racing in mind when he acquired the car. In fact, the car was used exclusively as a road car and enjoyed as such on open California roads!

1964 Ferrari 250 LM by Scaglietti

The 1964 Ferrari 250 LM is well known here at Supercars.net and is one of the most popular cars searched on the site. It has a 320 hp, 3,286 aluminum-block V-12 engine with six Weber 38 DCN carburetors. The completely redeveloped, lightweight, rear-mid engined Ferrari 250 Le Mans, named for where Ferrari had enjoyed unprecedented success since 1960, was the company’s 1964 entrant into sports car racing, and it was ready to uphold the company’s winning legacy. Although it didn’t take a 1st place in its introductory year (that particular honor was achieved by another Ferrari, a 275P), the 250 LM achieved outright dominance in 1965 at the Circuit de la Sarthe, where it was driven by Jochen Rindt and Masten Gregory. To this day, it remains Ferrari’s last overall victory in the endurance classic.

Chassis number 5899 GT was the ninth example of Ferrari’s vaunted 250 LM, and according to Ferrari historian Marcel Massini, it was completed by the factory on June 3, 1964. As was the case with the vast majority of 250 LMs, it was finished in Rossa Cina and fitted with Panno Blu seats. Six weeks later, it was sold by the factory, destined for Switzerland’s most storied racing team, Scuderia Filipinetti.
