World's most Expensive Cars at Auction


1957 Ferrari 335 S Spider Scaglietti
One of the rarest Ferraris in existence became one of the most expensive cars ever sold at auction. Price tag: £25 million, or about $36 million. Only four of the 1957 Ferrari 335 S Spider Scaglietti were made.

Auction house Artcurial Motorcars put the vehicle on the block during its annual Retromobile sale in Paris in February.

A 4.1-litre V12 engine gives the car 400 horsepower, enabling it to reach a top speed of 190 miles per hour—unheard of at the time.
The car won the Cuban Grand Prix in 1958, finished second in the Mille Miglia, and set a lap record at Le Mans during its racing career, having been driven by the likes of Stirling Moss and Mike Hawthorn.
