Le Mans winning Ferrari could become world's most expensive car
The winning Ferrari 275 Prototype from the 1964 24hrs of Le Mans race could become the world's most expensive car when it heads to auction as part of Retromobile 2018 in February.
The Ferrari 275P which was driven to victory during the 1964 24 Hours of Le Mans could be set to become the most expensive car in the world. The prototype Ferrari, carrying chassis number 0816, represents the final time the Italian carmaker's factory team would claim the top step of the podium at the Circuit de la Sarthe.
Currently, the record for the most expensive car is held by another Ferrari - a 250 GTO sold in 2014, which sold for an eye-watering $52million dollars. The Ferrari 275P, which has been part of the late Pierre Bardinon's Ferrari collection of more than 300 Ferraris, features a 3.3-litre V12 engine, which was capable of 316bhp - a remarkable feat more than half a century ago.
This piece of automotive history will go under the hammer at the Retromobile auction in Paris in February 2018.
