A $27 million Ferrari recently sold at auction has set a United States record. The 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 S NART Spider was part of an RM Auctions sale in Monterey, Calif. According to The Inquisitr on August 20, 2013, all the proceeds went to charity from the sale.
'The NART Spyder is a very special car,' dealer John Collins said of the vehicle. 'They’re so rare. They’re among the most beautiful of all Ferraris.'
The Spider was one of only 10 ever made. Eddie Smith Sr. also purchased it from Ferrari importers Luigi Chinetti in 1968.
The bidding on the $27 million Ferrari started at $10 million and was only expected to go as high as $17 million. It quickly went over $20 million before settling at a $27.5 million sale. The identity of the anonymous buyer is believed to be Canadian fashion mogul Lawrence Stroll.
The proceeds from the $27 million Ferrari will be donated to charitable causes close to the heart of the late owner. This is the most expensive road-going car of any kind ever sold at auction as well as the second most expensive car to ever be sold at auction.
