Re: Who pays?! Not the value of this car but the value of a very special 250 GTO. It just goes to show how much history costs in the car world. The 250 GTO you're thinking of was the car that won the 1963 LeMans, but that is not all it did. After winning LeMans, it drove to Paris, a 4 hour drive, for an after race party, solidifing this Ferrari's place as the ultimate gentleman's racer (drive it to the track and then drive home). A regular 250 GTO, one of the other less notable 35 built will run b/t $3-6 million. Also, the car that won LeMans isn't worth $9 million, that was its estimate, it didn't sell, which means that the 1930 Bugatti Type 41 Coupe, body by Kellner, is still the world's most expensive auction piece, garnering $8.6 million in 1986.
