At Trend Hunter, we don't normally cover the 'most expensive' of any particular item, but this Ferrari just set an extraordinary new record, showing that car collecting is reaching a new level. The last previous record of the most expensive vehicle in the world was set by the Sir Sterling Moss 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO at $32 million. This record has since been broken with the 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO selling for $52 million.

The latest GTO is known for its competition history—it had won the 1963 Tour de France road race, so its both nostalgic and beautiful. The car was recently sold in a private deal for over 49% more than the last standing record price. This classic car is sought after as both a competition tool of sport, and a rare art work. This recent increase in classic vehicle sales (and prices) suggests a growing market in this field.

The Ferrari 250 GTO set records as the most expensive car in the world. More pictures of this vehicle and information about the transaction are available online.
