The 20 Most Expensive Ferraris in the World
In 2013, according to Ferrari and the California State Board of Equalization, approximately 500 Ferraris were delivered to the United States between 1998 and 2010.
This is the list of the 20 most expensive Ferrari of the world.

The 1958 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa in this auction is the first Ferrari 250 built. It has a unique testa rossa (red over silver) with a light blue canvas soft top.
This race car is a special and unusual car, which is equipped with a 3-liter V12 engine that produces 300 horsepower.
It’s a supercar. It’s a new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series.
19. 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Speciale

18. 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider
Estimated Value: $16.83 Million
Ferrari built just 56 Spider, and they are worth millions. The oldest is a 1961 Ferrari Spider that sold for $28,500,000. This is the rarest and most valuable Spider in the world.
[Video]: This Ferrari Spider has 55,000 miles on it. The original owner loved it so much that he had the Ferrari wrapped in vinyl and the paint protected in a clear acrylic.
Only 17 were built with open headlights, and the GT has a 2,953-liter V12 engine, which produces 280 hp, and can reach a top speed of 145 mph.
17. 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider
Estimated Value: $17.16 Million
Spiders are one of the six breeds of domesticated dogs that have been accepted by the American Kennel Club.
It looks like this car was pretty strong since it won the 1957 race. It is one of the few aluminum body cars that ever existed. It was one of the strongest cars ever because it had a full aluminum body.
It has 2,953 cc SOHC Colombo V12 engine, three Weber 40 carburetors, and a curb weight.
16. 1964 Ferrari 250 LM
Estimated Value: $17.6 Million
In 2015, a rare, limited production Ferrari 250 GTO sold for 17.6 million dollars, it was the seventeenth most expensive Ferrari in the world.
It’s considered one of the very best examples of the most sought after body style — the “Babe” — and has multiple first-place victories to its name.
Under the hood of this $4.5 million car is a 3,286 cc aluminum-block V12 engine and six Weber 38 DCN carburetors, which provides you with a stunning 320 hp, but that is probably the least of your worries.
15. 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider Competizione
Estimated Value: $17.99 Million
The California Spider was the first to use an aluminum bodied chassis and was one of the earliest prototypes of the California Spider.
It is the second of eight aluminum California Spiders built by Scattarella for the 1959 Le Mans.
The Ferrari Spider is also eligible for vintage racing events and Concours events. The Spider sold at auction in 2017 for $17.99 million.
14. 1964 Ferrari 250 LM
Estimated Value: $18.26 Million
This was a race car which Michael Schumacher drove during the 1995 24h of Le Mans, a race in which he won with a record margin. The car was bought by a French collector and it’s a real piece of history. A rare piece.
It’s Ferrari’s first mid-engine sports car, and features a V12 engine with a top speed of 180 mph.
The Ferrari is a beautiful car. It has made a few films and television shows about it.
13. 1954 Ferrari 375-Plus Spider Competizione
Estimated Value: $18.3 Million
Ferrari made many sports cars, the 375-Plus is one of them.
This model competed in several races, winning many of them including Le Mans, Carrera Panamericana, 1000km of Buenos Aires, and Silverstone.

11. 1954 Ferrari 375-Plus Spider Competizione
Estimated Value: $19.5 Million
Built solely for the Mille Miglia race, this particular 375-plus sold at auction for $19.5 million.
I believe that’s enough for today.
The car originally sold for $19 million, as it was the most expensive car on the market. Then it got a lot of attention and was worth a lot more, as it was so unique.
10. 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB-C Speciale
Estimated Value: $26.4 Million
The 1964 GTB-C Speciale is the tenth car on our list of the best ever made.
The first car ever to be built in the production of the Berlinetta, there are only three cars built of the original prototype. The car was also the first Ferrari to run on Michelin tires in 1952.
The engine is equipped with four cylinders, a Type 213/Comp 3,286 lightweight block V12 engine, and six Weber 38 DCN carburetors.
9. 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB-C Speciale
Estimated Value: $27.4 Million
Preston Henn’s 1965 Ferrari is the only one of its kind, of the three built, and it’s the second car that the Ferrari factory raced.
This is a beautiful car with a 3.3-litre Ford V12 engine, and it has all the bells and whistles, but it’s missing the power of a V12 Ferrari; it’s missing the heart of a V12 Ferrari.
Because of the race riots and protests against the Vietnam War in the U.S.
8. 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4S NART Spider
Estimated Value: $27.5 Million
This Spider with 3,690 horsepower and a top speed of 200-plus MPH is one of the rarest cars on the planet.
This Ferrari has only ever been owned by one person and is one of only ten ever manufactured.
The engine is a direct derivative of the Lamborghini V12, and features three valves per cylinder. The car also features an advanced traction control system, and four-wheel ABS with electronic brake force distribution.
7. 1956 Ferrari 290 MM Scaglietti Spider
Estimated Value: $28 Million
What makes this Ferrari so valuable is the fact that it’s Ferrari’s first in the Enzo family and is a one-off creation. It was originally built for the owner’s son – but he tragically died in the crash. That’s why the car only has one owner – and the family has been waiting for someone to come along and buy it.
At the time of its introduction it was the world’s most powerful post-war racing Ferrari, but the engine was too big for a road car and therefore the car was only ever raced at Le Mans, in the Mille Miglia and the famous Carrera Pan Americana.
As one of the original spiders, it’s one of the last remaining and it was raced as a works car for Scuderia Ferrari several times in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
6. 1956 Ferrari 290 MM
Estimated Value: $28 Million
One of the remaining two 1956 290 MM Scaglietti Spider sold for $28 million at a Sotheby’s auction in 2015.
Juan Manuel Fangio was the greatest racing driver of his times and his car was specifically built for him to drive in the 1956 Mille Miglia.
5. 1957 Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti Spider
Estimated Value: $35.7 Million
The Ferrari 335 S was race car designed and developed by Ferrari in ’57 which was used to compete with the Masserati 450s.
Only four cars were made, and each had a 4.1-litre V12 engine that produced 390 hp that allowed the vehicle to reach a top speed of 300 kph (190 mph). It should be noted that this is one of only two cars (the other being the Enzo) where the engine was designed and built by themselves at Maranello.
The Italian supercars are among the highest performing Ferraris, which is why they’re among the most popular.
4. 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO
Estimated Value: $39.6 Million
The 1962 250 GTO is the best known model in the Ferrari range, and the most successful one in terms of sales.
So far in 2014, this was the most expensive car sold in the world, and there have been over 100 of them sold since then.
F1 is the most prestigious motorsport in the world, and with the money and resources of Ferrari behind it, it can hardly be considered to be a challenge to the drivers.
3. 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO
Estimated Value: $48.4 Million
The famous Ferrari 250 GTO sold at a Sotheby’s auction last year for staggering $48.4 million!
This car was owned by Edoardo Lualdi-Gabardi, and he was the first to use it in a car racing campaign.
The Porsche 997 is considered to be the best and most authentic GTOs on the planet.
2. 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO
Estimated Value: $52 Million
The second most expensive Ferrari was made in 1963 and it is made of a wooden frame.
In the 1970s, when the oil crisis was at its peak, the car industry found itself at a financial crisis as well. The production of the Volkswagen Beetle was stopped in 1974 and the company started a search for a replacement model that would be produced for many years to come. The project lasted several years but at the start of 1977, when the project was finally revealed, it was already too late for the new model to be a success.
It’s sad because I wanted to buy this car, and it didn’t even have the proper tires to make it worth my money.
1. 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO
Estimated Value: $70 Million
If we would like to have the most expensive car in the world we should look for a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO.
This champion race car was owned by David MacNeil for his private collection. In 1996, WeatherTech CEO David MacNeil purchased the Ferrari from a private sale for $70 million, turning the car into the most expensive Ferrari in the world.
This car is rumored to have been paid for by a rich person, which seems odd because there are so few of them.
The Ferrari 330 was the first V8 Ferrari race car and placed 3rd at the 1964 Le Mans and won the 1965 Monte Carlo Rally by a large margin.
Because it doesn’t have a reputation for being great at racing, GTOs’ history makes it difficult to price them. If you can find a very clean and un-modified original car, you can likely get the same deal as a used GTO.
In the end, as we all know, there’s only one truly expensive car in the world,
and that’s the Ferrari.
In the event that you’re a sports car lover, then the Lotus Exige S Evora is an excellent option for you. It has a price of just over $100,000.
