The past few months have seen collectible Ferrari models sell for anywhere from $1 million USD to nearly $18 million USD, but this latest sale takes the cake. A 1963 Ferrari GTO — one of only 36 ever made — recently sold for $70 million USD to a private collector in Germany, making it the priciest auto sale ever. Topping the record of $52 million USD set by a GTO sold in 2013, the nameless owner joins an elite group of ‘63 GTO owners which includes Wal-Mart heir Rob Walton and none other than Ralph Lauren. Another ‘63 GTO holds the record for highest price ever fetched by a car at auction, raking in nearly $35 million USD at a Bonhams auction in Florida.
