Ferrari draws on its heritage for design inspiration and, sometimes, model names. That’s why there were three different Ferrari GTO models over a half century period. While not intended as a racecar like the legendary 250 GTO and later 288 GTO before the 2011 599 GTO was developed from an experimental track car program, called 599 XX. Ferrari built just 599 of these later GTOs, with 125 coming to the U.S. Gooding & Company is offering one of these rare machines at its Amelia Island auction, with a pre-sale estimate of $800K-$1M.
A report published in Bloomberg early this month speculated that we might soon see the world’s most expensive auction car at perhaps $100 million – a very special Ferrari 275 GTB. The 1965 Ferrari GTB/C Speciale was a race version of Ferrari’s fabulous mid-’60s berlinetta, and one of the three made, chassis No. 06885.
A quarter century has passed since the 328 models went out of production, and they’ve finally caught the eye of collectors, as evidenced by a doubling in value over the last five years. With that kind of upward trend, leasing a 328 GTB or GTS through the Premier Financial Services Simple Lease is a smarter strategy than ever.
