The most expensive car ever sold was a 1963 Ferrari GTO that went for $52 million in a private sale back in 2013, however Motor Authority thinks a rare 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Speciale currently on display in a Florida flea market (seriously) might be able to surpass it once sold.
Just three Ferrari 275 GTB/C Speciales were ever produced, with all of them being purpose-built racecars. The body panels and chassis tubes were made of thinner materials than the road-going 275 GTB, helping Ferrari trim about 300 pounds from the car. The 3.3-liter V12 also came with an additional 70 horsepower for a max output of 350 horsepower, which was sent to the rear wheels through Ferrari’s first rear transaxle transmission.
While three 275 GTB/C Speciales left Maranello, only one raced, chassis 6885. This is the car that is currently sitting on display in a Florida flea market, living a much more sedate life than it did in the 1960s. Back then, it was entered in the 1965 Targa Florio and also won the 1965 24 Hours of Le Mans and 1965 Nassau Grand Prix.
Today the 275 GTB/C Speciale is owned by millionaire Preston Henn, who also owns many other iconic Ferraris including an Enzo and FXX. Henn has no intention on selling the car, but when he does, he stands to make a pretty penny. The first 275 GTB/C Speciale sold at auction in 2014 for $26.4 million and it had no racing pedigree. The third car is sitting in a private collection but was also never raced. Henn’s car is thought to be worth as much as $75 million, but to us that seems a bit extreme, especially considering the recent decline in the collector car market.
