Model 0808 won the 1962 LeMans event before being sold by Ferrari to another team.

TOP 2 MOST EXPENSIVE CLASSIC CAR
"1962 Ferrari 250 GTO "
The interior of the 250 GTO is plain; there isn't even carpeting. But with only 40 models made, it's one of the most rare Ferraris in the world. A British garage held on to the one it had acquired cheaply in the '70s and sold it to a Japanese businessman in 1990 for $16.6 million.
THE MOST EXPENSIVE CALSSIC CAR
"1954 Mercedes W 196"
This car was raced by legendary drivers Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss before ending up in a museum in the 1980s. The car was sold for a couple of millions to finance renovations at the museum, and sold again in 1990 to a French industrialist for $24 million. A German businessman is currently the owner; he reportedly paid less then half the amount in the late '90s.
In the end, you can ask yourself if these machines are worth that much. Weighing in the parts, history and lore, the value still often resides in the eye of the beholder; cars are a sentimental affair and they're only worth as much as people are prepared to pay. And while your ride quickly depreciates after purchase, these classics have become works of art.
