  • Freaking cool

  • Wtf Wtf Wtf Wtf Wtf Wtf Wtf Wtf Wtf Wtf Wtf Wtf Wtf Wtf Wtf

    DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THAT CAR IS WORTH? 8 figures easy, and it’s just chillin on M street? Wow, thank God I wasn’t walking down the street, because I’d be pictured lying next to it from fainting. Freaking awesome, and I’m not even a Ferrari Guy.

    I just read its not a tried and true factory 250 GTO…. still awesome

    • Oops Wisconsin Ave**

    • I was thinking the same thing. . . “who drives a $38 Million dollar car into Georgetown!?!?”. . .but then read the “recreation” part.

      On another note. Anyone who likes cars, I recommend getting out of DC to Katies Cars and Coffee in Great Falls early on a Saturday morning (like 7AM). Definitely worth waking up for. Lots of cool cars.

      • It’s a car, it’s made to be driven – and that goes doubly for this particular car! If you’re not going to drive it, you have a very expensive work of art you have to store in your garage. A valid choice, but wouldn’t you rather take it out and put it through its paces? I admit, though, that what all that is true in the abstract, I’d have serious second thoughts for something of this value. Were you serious when you said it was worth $38 million?

        • Were this an original, it would definitely be worth 8 figures (no point in trying to pin down an exact amount – it’s up to a well-monied collector at that point). As a “recreation”, it’s worth a fraction of that price, but it’s still cool as hell.

        • The last several sales of originals : $32mil, $35 mil, $52 mil, $31 mil, then most recently for $38.1 mil.

    • If it’s an FIA-certified replica, it’s still a 7-figure car, which is still insane to street park.

  • I can’t be the only one why thought of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, can I? “The 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California. Less that 100 were built. My father spent three years restoring this car. It is his love, it is his passion . . . ” “It is his fault he didn’t lock the garage.”
    Thanks for that little pick me up on hump day.

  • Be still my heart

  • As I suspected, a recreation. There is, however, a lawyer who lives part time in DC that has a real one. There’s only 39 real ones in the world, and values are between $35-45 million.

  • A beauty. The next 250 GTO that goes to auction will probably fetch more than $40M. While it’s not one of the original 39 GTOs, I’d would be curious to see what this would fetch at auction. The donor car was probably a 250 GTE, which top out at $500k in perfect and original condition. The FIA certification mainly pertains to its eligibility for sanctioned vintage racing, but it is a tacit commentary on how close it is to the original cars.

    All that is moot, it probably drives 97% the same at an original while still remaining a car and not an object of mere investment. Awesome to see it getting use

  • Anyone interested in understanding what makes the GTO so special, and what it sounds like at speed should check out this 8m video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewQaikxTUJs

    There is a good reason that the GTOs are the most valuable cars ever produced.
