1963 Ferrari 250 GTO

With its recent sale price of $52 million, it seems like the 1963 Ferarri 250 GTO ought to top out on this list. But it winds up as an honorable mention because you can’t actually buy one; it’s not just that you can’t afford it; there are none for sale.
So how does this 50-year-old Italian stallion come to cost more than some countries? Well, for starters there are only 39 of them. So they are quite rare.
Also each one is a bit different. They are handcrafted – and not in the modern sense in that some technician carefully screwed together some 3D-printed componentslBut rather in the sense of an actual florid Italian hand hammering the gorgeous aluminum bodywork.
They say that the Ferrari godfather, Enzo, had these built in response to the sublime Jaguar E-type. And while he may not have beat jag on production, $52 million might just be enough to buy all the Jaguar E-types left in the world.
