Motor (Australia) - - FRONT END | PACE NOTES -

WITH THE in­ter­na­tional clas­sic car mar­ket con­tin­u­ing to boom, it was pos­si­bly only a mat­ter of time be­fore the record for the world’s most ex­pen­sive car sale was bro­ken. How­ever, few could have imag­ined a fig­ure in ex­cess of AUD$90m. US en­tre­pre­neur David MacNeil, owner of au­to­mo­tive floor-mat firm WeatherTech, has re­port­edly paid US$70m for Fer­rari 250 GTO chas­sis 4153GT 63, which was raced ex­ten­sively in pe­riod at events such as the 1000km Nur­bur­gring, Le Mans 24-Hour, Tour de France and many more. It’s de­scribed as one of the best 250 GTOs in ex­is­tence (there are only 39 to choose from) and has been used and shown ex­ten­sively at clas­sic car events all over Europe in re­cent years.– SN
