We’ve repaired some very pricey vehicles over the years in Silicon Valley, because highly discerning owners value our exemplary work. But, if this car came into our shop, first we would be shocked and then we would get to work!
The most expensive car ever sold is a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO which changed hands for $35 million! This lime-green sports car, originally built for British racing driver Sir Stirling Moss, was bought by billionaire US car collector and businessman Craig McCaw from Dutch-born tycoon Eric Heerema. It is one of just 39 Ferrari 250 GTOs ever made. They sold for around $18,000 when they were first put on the market just over 50 years ago. Other contenders for the most expensive car in the world include a 1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic which sold for over $30million (with rumors the price was as high as $40million), also in May 2012. A Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa that won the Le Mans 24-hour race in 1958 fetched around $25million. And a Ferrari 250 GTO bought for $18 million by British TV and radio host Chris Evans in 2010 — which was at the time the most expensive car in the world — was sold for just under $30 million in early 2012, banking him a profit of around $10million in just two years.
We’re happy to fix any vehicle, whether it’s a Ford truck all the way to a brand new Tesla, but a $35 million car? That would surely get our attention and a challenge we’re willing to accept.
