1962 Ferrari 250 Gran Turismo Omologato

One of the most impressive and possibly the most expensive Prancing Horse of all times, this incredible 1962 Ferrari 250 Gran Turismo Omologato is currently on the market through the renowned classics broker Talacrest. If you’re a big fan of Ferrari classics, your passion might be put to the ultimate test with this beauty, since you’ll need no less than $55.8 million just to have the privilege of calling this iconic supercar yours.

The second of only 39 units ever built, chassis No. 3387GT was initially used in testing before becoming the very first 250 GTO to take part in racing events. Once it arrived in the United States, at Luigi Chinetti Motors, the gorgeous Ferrari before you became part of Ferrari’s North American Racing Team (NART) and had its official debut at the 12 Hours Sebring race, back in 1962.

Aside from its noteworthy racing history and victorious portfolio, this unique vehicle is well worth the attention thanks to the massive 3.0-liter V12 engine that could be found under the hood. A revolutionary powerplant back in the day, this impressive engine was (and probably still is) capable of producing 310 hp, with all that power going to the car’s wheels through a 5-speed, dog-leg gearbox.

This engine takes the Ferrari 250 GTO from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.1 seconds towards a top speed of about 158 mph – yes, for a car built in 1962. Through the years, the racing legend before you benefited from attention and TLC from various owners and skilled craftsmen, which is why it is looking pristine right now and comes with the original body and authentic period parts from the marque.

The 250 GTO was already one of the most coveted collectible vehicles in the world, but this particular ride seems to be a very flavored cherry on top of an automotive power-cake. And if it does sell for $55.8 million, this Ferrari will become the world’s most expensive supercar, of all time.
