Before I read this story from autoweek.com my guess was the podium most expensive cars sold at auction would be a Ferrari. And I was right, but not only did Ferrari hold the coveted number 1 spot, but also took out 10 other places in the top 20, including the other two podium steps.
Why? Firstly most of the Ferrari’s listed were very limited production vehicles – and more so, they were designed and built for racing. Secondly, not only were they blisteringly quick, but they, as with most any Ferrari vehicles were works of art.
So what other brands fill the 9 remaining places of the 20 Most Expensive Cars sold at auction?
Alfa Romeo took out 15th and 16th, Mercedes 4th, Aston Martin 8th,12th, McLaren 13th, 14th, Jaguar 11th, and Duesenberg came in at 10th.
On the autoweek.com site, you can read all the comments about where and when these cars were last sold and a bit of their history.
And what’s your favorite from the 20 most expensive cars ever sold?
Because it’s red, it was made in the year I was born (1957) and it’s a Ferrari, the 1957 Ferrari 335 Sport Scaglietti is my pick. At $35.7 million dollars, it will never find a home in my garage, but I would at least like to see it in the flesh. It’s just beautiful.
