Rare 1959 Ferrari GT sold for $3.26 million on Ebay

Cars this rare usually are sold at auction sites like Barrett Jackson or Pebble Beach, and not on Ebay. So how this 1959 Ferrari GT was sold on Ebay for $3.2 million, we’ll never know. It’s not a knock on Ebay. It’s just that we don’t see these types of authentic classics on that site so you’ll have to forgive us for the initial shock.

Okay, now that we’ve gotten over it – at least a bit – this rare and exotic Ferrari was sold by its owner from Pittsburgh and, even more surprising, was that it was bid on 86 times before the winning bidder scooped it for $3.2 million.

A Ferrari being sold for $3.2 million might be a little steep, but this particular car is nowhere near what you consider ‘typical’, even for Ferrari’s standards. The car – its official name is the Ferrari California Spyder 250 GT CS – comes with a 12-cylinder engine, a manual transmission, and is only one of nine models that come with a Tipo 508 D aluminum body frame. It is also one of the first Ferraris to be outfitted with disc brakes, which at that time, was akin to having a car made out of forged composite today.

hmm. Just recently, Ferrari have revived the Enzo. Well, roadster version is kind of gorgeous and i would say that the beauty of this vintage car is timeless!

Although i do rate the 250GTO and (maybe) the 355 above it.

i don’t think it looks tacked on at all. it matches the matte black color scheme of the other Aeroflot pieces and rear end area.
