Technically this car is joint-eighth with the Jaguar, as the 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione also sold for $13,200,000 last year (and also by RM Sotheby’s). Just 14 were made and chassis 0557GT had its biggest success in 1956, winning the Tour de France Auto – made up of two hill climbs, one drag race, and six circuit races. It enjoyed further racing success, cementing its status as a hugely important car in Ferrari’s history, before passing through several owners.
