A Ferrari 250 GTO just took the honors of being the world’s most expensive car after it was sold for $28.5 million. The car is now in England with its new owner, and you can imagine he wants the exact location of his new treasure to remain secret.
There were only 39 GTOs ever produced (most cars in its class have over 100 examples produced at the time,) and most experts agree that the 250 GTO is one of the most most desirable Ferraris ever.
The 250 GTO is powered by a 3 liter (180 cubic inches) engine, a version of the Gioacchino Colombo short-block designed V12. All engines were tested on a dynomometer and found to achieve between 290 to just over 300 horsepower, peaking at around 7500 rpm. The car is capable of a top speed of 174 mph and makes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 5.4 seconds.
