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.
