1957 ferrari 250 testarossa

Ferrari’s 250 series of cars have always turned out to be the record breakers and as expected, the iconic 1957 Ferrari 250 Testarossa (chassis no. 0714TR) has set a new world record for the most expensive motor car ever to be sold at an auction. This Scaglietti-designed Ferrari Pontoon-fender Testarossa was one of only 22 cars ever built. The car went for €9 million ($12 million) in an auction of Italian supercars organized by RM Auctions at Ferrari’s Maranello home in Italy. The previous world record for a car sold at auction was held by a black 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California, which was bought for €7 million by UK radio host Chris Evans.
