Rare Ferrari 250 GTO for Auction
The auction is very important because it is public. Usually, when 250 GTOs change hands, the transactions are made behind closed doors and never disclosed to the public. Rumors say that a few years ago a 250 GTO was sold for $30 million, but no one has completely confirmed the information. The car up for auction now has chassis no. 4675 GT and has been raced in the full range of competitive events, including hillclimbs, endurance races and rallies.
According to RM Auctions “the present owner acquired 4675 GT in 1996, and has maintained it in his exceptional, world-renowned Japanese collection ever since. Most recently 4675 GT has participated in the ultra-private events reserved only for GTO owners, namely the 35th and 45th GTO Anniversary Tours in France and California. ”
“The Ferrari GTO is unquestionably one of the most iconic and coveted cars in the world," says Max Girardo, Managing Director of RM Europe. "This is truly a rare occasion for collectors to acquire such an important piece of automotive history and we are pleased to be chosen by 4675 GT's current custodian to represent it on the open market."
