Classic cars often sell out for ridiculous prices, but it’s worth keeping in mind that these vehicles only get more valuable as the years go by. That’s why it shouldn’t surprise you too much to find out that this Ferrari 335 Sport Scaglietti from 1957 was recently sold for the overwhelming sum of $35,711,359 at an Artcurial Motorcars Retromobile auction.
Officially the most expensive car to be sold at auction so far, this masterpiece completed the Sebring 12 Hours in March 1957, and it finished on the sixth spot. It also came in second at the Mille Miglia race and became the first car ever to boast an average lap speed of over 124 mph at Le Mans 24 Hours. In 1958, Sir Stirling Moss drove it across the finish line at the Cuba Grand Prix. As you can see, the car’s worth is mostly owed to its outstanding heritage, and not just to its age and incredible condition.
