Sale Price: $35,763,848
Auction: Artcurial’s Retromobile, Paris, France
It may not be the most expensive car ever sold at auction, but it runs a close second. (The record is still held by a 1962 Ferrari GTO that sold for $38 million in 2014). Only four of these vehicles were ever built, and this one had been kept by a French collector for the last 40 years. A pure race car, the 335 Sport makes 390 horsepower from its 4.0-liter V12 engine and boasts a top speed in excess of 180 mph. Raced by many big names — including Sir Stirling Moss — it is said that this car helped Ferrari win the Constructors’ World Championship title in 1957.
