The world’s highest priced Ferrari has just been auctioned off for a cool $27.5 million, a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 N.A.R.T Spyder.
The car is one of ten that were produced and, believe it or not, really is a one owner from new vehicle, even though Steve McQueen once tried to buy it off that owner, Eddie Smith Sr, a Ferrari collector and businessman from North Carolina, as he had crashed and totaled his own.
Smith however preferred to hold on to it and apparently continued to drive it regularly up until his passing six years ago. His son, Eddie Smith Jr, decided to sell though, and donate the proceeds of the sale to charity. The winning bidder was Tommy Hillfiger exec Lawrence Stroll who now owns the second most expensive car ever sold at auction, behind only Fangio’s $29.6 million 1954 Mercedes W196 racer. So what do you think, did he get his money’s worth?
