Video: Granddad Sold Ferrari 250 GTO For $9,500, Now It’s $70M A man tells the story of his grandfather’s Ferrari 250 GTO. The Ferrari 250 GTO needs little to no introduction to most car enthusiasts. There are entire books written about the GTO and its racing achievements. Today, it is not unusual to see these vehicles with eight-figure asking prices. That just goes to show how much the value of a Ferrari 250 GTO has skyrocketed. Nevertheless, there is still some uncertainty about how many GTOs were actually built. The number falls between 36 and 39, depending on if you count the four-liter versions.

Andreas Nikolaus Lauda (22 February 1949 – 20 May 2019) was an Austrian Formula One driver , a three-time F 1 World Drivers ' Champion, winning in 1975, 1977 and 1984, and an aviation entrepreneur. He was the only driver in F 1 history to have been champion for both Ferrari and McLaren

Andreas Nikolaus Lauda and the Scuderia Ferrari had a profound relationship, a happy and sometimes controversial liaison with great victories and also 1974 was a test for the Scuderia of the Prancing Horse, with a new driver and the development of what went on to be the winning car, the Ferrari 312

F1 Ferrari Driven By Niki Lauda Sells In Monterey

This legendary race car was able to bring home one more victory.

Both good and bad fortunes have come to fruition in Monterey this weekend. One of the solid victories was for a car that’s used to snagging the checkered flag, a 1975 Ferrari 312T driven by Niki Lauda. It has an amazing backstory, fueling a bidding war that culminated in a $6 million sale at the hands of Gooding & Company.

Thank you all for visit, like the video and comment!! Here the original F 1 Ferrari 312 T which was driven by Niki Lauda at Museo casa EnzoFerrari for the

Fast 4 lap race with a Formula 1 Ferrari from 1970. Forza 5 ACTION! Thanks a lot for sharing, commenting, subscribing and thumbs up.

While that final sale amount is good, it just barely meets the minimal estimate Gooding & Company as well as many experts had set prior to the auction. The high end of most estimates was $8 million.

This particular 312T chassis no. 022 helped carry Ferrari to victory after nine years of the automaker trying desperately to capture the F1 world championship. As a result, the car has become quite legendary.

Just five examples were built by Ferrari, and this one uses one of two main chassis used by Lauda in 1975. It also has under its belt the BRDC International Trophy and was a Class Award Winner at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

The previous owner held onto the car for almost 14 years, sinking a considerable sum into restoring it in glorious fashion. Today, it wears the exact same livery as when the racer took the checkered flags for the 1975 French Grand Prix. It was not only a big victory for Ferrari, in addition it was the first world championship for Lauda. A red, green, and white color scheme sits proudly on the tall intake, representing the nation that backed such a monumental effort.

1955 Porsche Tempo Mikafa Sport Camper Sells Beyond Estimates This rare camper netted a good haul in Monterey. Monterey Car Week auctions often have an eclectic, fun selection of vehicles to bid on, but the 1955 Porsche Tempo Mikafa was perhaps one of the most unusual options this year. The aluminum-bodied camper was estimated to sell for as much as $150,000, but once the hammer fell at Mecum it actually netted $187,000. While Porsches general elicit quite a bit of excitement among collectors and enthusiasts, this one was a bit of a wildcard. The unrestored Tempo Mikafa Sport Camper is one of only three ever made.

Niki Lauda died earlier this year at the age of 70. While tragic, this car will help preserve the memory of a legendary driver and one of his storied accomplishments. This particular car is one of the most significant F1 racers to have ever been offered for sale to the public, which was a rare treat. The end result did not disappoint.

The 790 HP Ferrari 812 GTS Is Unlike Anything Ferrari's Made In Years.
The new 790 horsepower 2020 Ferrari 812 GTS is the first series production front-engine V12 Ferrari convertible in almost 50 years, and it’s sadly probably the last time the stars will align to grace us with such a perfect combination. To be clear, there have been front-engined V12 Ferraris a few times in recent years, like the 612 Scaglietti of the mid-2000s. But the new 812 GTS sees a return to V12 convertibles that we haven’t seen in some years. (Remember, the California was V8-only; there’s also the 575 Superamerica, which is exceedingly rare.
