Ferrari 250 GTO Wrecked In World’s Most Expensive Car Crash
A Ferrari 250 GTO has recently been involved in a car crash in France. This classic Ferrari is estimated to be worth around $35 million US dollars making this one of the most expensive car accidents in the world.
The Ferrari 250 GTO is regarded as the “Picasso” of the motoring world, according to Metro.
US businessman Christopher Cox was driving the luxury sports car in France, en route to Le Mans, among a convoy of wealthy Ferrari enthusiasts when the accident occurred near Blois.
The group of 21 Ferrari owners were taking part in the vehicle’s 50th anniversary tour.
Mr Cox’s Ferrari model was produced in April 1962 and was one of only 39 ever built. The 174mph sports car sold for £6,000 at the time.
The car was initially red, but was resprayed blue with a yellow central stripe in 1963. Mr Cox bought it seven years ago.
The value of the Ferrari 250 GTO has boomed in recent years, with a green model built for race car driver Stirling Moss selling recently for a world record $35 million.
