Ferrari GTO sale expected to smash auction records

A car with quite a history:

“A 1962 Ferrari 250GTO Berlinetta has been slated to set a new world record for the most expensive car ever to be sold at auction when it goes under the hammer at Quail Lodge, California on 15 August.”

“The car was initially delivered to French ski champion Henri Oreiller on 11 September 1962 and was driven with Formula 1 ace Jo Schlesser in that year’s Tour de France, in which the pair placed second. Shortly thereafter, the GTO was involved in a crash at Montlhery in which Oreiller struck a building and was killed. The car was repaired by Ferrari and sold to gentleman driver Paolo Colombo.”

UPDATE: Sold for US$38,115,000 (source)
