Click above for high-res gallery of the Ferrari 250 GTO

The going rate for vintage Ferraris seems to be at an all time high, as evidenced by the record sale of a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder back in May and the incredible selection of million dollar Ferraris at the RM Auction in Monterey this year. All of those are easily topped, however, by the rumored sale of a Ferrari 250 GTO for an incredible $28.5 million. Not much is known about the actual sale, since many of the high-dollar Ferrari transactions are done through private parties and not necessarily through an auction house. However, the knowledgeable members at FerrariChat.com have it on authority that the sale did happen. If anything, it gave us a chance to put together a huge gallery of 250 GTO photos from various concours and vintage racing events. Enjoy the photos below!

      Dang. I would have a hard choice between one of those or around 95 F430's in every color known to mankind.

      The Ferrari 250 GT0 is a beautiful, exclusive car...arguably the most purest, elitest sportscar

      And its 3.0 liter V12 - that's a good engine, a really good engine.

      But 28.5 million? but if you could afford it, you could afford it. you can't put a price tag on happiness.

      only thing more beautiful than that car is the '57 250 TR

      A 1962 GTO, was $23,000 in 1962 dollars. With inflation, the car would be equivalent to $167,000.

      That's quite a profit margin.

      While I don't deny the GTO is a very nice looking car, I wouldn't rate is as the best Ferrari ever like so many other people do. Now the 250 TR 61, theres a car I would pay $28.5m for

      Rumor has it that the deal was brokered by a Broker in the San Diego area. I've heard (more than once) that the Broker is close friends with the buyer!

      hey when you are worth a couple of billion what is $28 million plus shipping and handeling for a car.

      One of the most beautiful cars of all time - certainly would be one of the cars at the top of my shoplist if I had infinite disposable income.

      I'm no tree hugger but I hope whoever bought this car gave the same amount to charity. This is obscene.

        I keed, I keed.

      28.5 million is a ridiculous amount of money for metal and plastics. There is no justification for that price lol. I'd hate to be the person who balls this car up into a wall at a vintage race.

        @Carlos
        Tell me about it, who would insure this??? I saw a guy wad up a lightweight E Type at Summit Point a few years ago...I think they had him on suicide watch and that car was probably worth around 125K!!!
