Report: Sterling Moss’s 1962 LeMans Ferrari takes title as world’s most expensive car

To the uninitiated, Camry-driving, innocent soul, this car may seem slightly too innocuous to fetch $35 million, but for the rest of us and especially the buyer, it’s a little more reasonable. The car you are looking at is a 1962 Ferrari 250GTO hand crafted for racing legend Sir Stirling Moss.

The minty looking ‘Fezza ousted a ‘36 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic sold in 2010 by $1 million at a private sale this past May.

Setting this GTO apart is the fact that Moss never actually got to race the car as a result of his career ending crash at Goodwood in 1962. Innes Ireland and Masten Gregory raced the car at la Sarthe that year; Ireland also won the ‘62 Tourist Trophy at Goodwood.

Mechanically, there are a few interesting things: the fuel fillers on these cars often switched sides depending upon where the pit wall resided; this car has a metal plate covering the receptacle on the left rear fender and the filler is now on the left side of the trunklid. Additionally, Moss’s name is written in red on the aluminum on the driver’s seat.

The last time this car changed hands was for a paltry $8.5 million in 2000.
