You can buy a classic car right now from as little as £10,000. With the budget, you’ll be able to purchase a decent one you can use for many years. However, when it comes to a classic car, we all know that people are willing to spend millions.
Here is a list of the most expensive classic cars ever sold.
1995 McLaren F1 – £12.3 million
This car is a beast and believe it or not, it is not that old compared to other classic cars. However, the story behind it is what makes this car a legend. The idea for this car was sketched out back in 1988. Renowned car designer Gordon Murray was waiting for his flight after attending the Italian Grand Prix.
He sketched out a model of a 3 seater sports cars which has always been his dream when he was a kid. He then proposed the idea to McLaren Group’s founder Ron Dennis and the rest, was history.
1954 Mercedes-Benz W196 Formula 1 – £23 million
This particular model was the result of the Second World War. Its design was inspired by some technology used in the war. This model was the king of the race track in the mid-1950s.
1962 Ferrari 250 GTO – £57 million
That’s right, a whopping £57 million for this more than 50-year old car. However, this particular model is one of a kind, actually 36 of a kind given that there were only 36 made from 1962 to 1964. The 250 GTO classic is an inspiration to so many classic cars that came after.
If would further blow your mind that to this day, all 36 cars are still in good condition and are very much ok.
