Jaws dropped when a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta sold at auction for $38.1 million in 2014, setting a record like we’ve never seen before.
But a 1963 Ferrari 330 Le Mans Berlinetta that is being offered in a private treaty sale by Rick Cole Auctions in Monterey this week might even surpass this price, given that it’s superior and technically more advanced than the 250 GTO and far more rare.
Here are just some of the car’s highlights:
- Incredibly rare as 1 of 4 examples of the 330 LM Berlinetta produced in all
