Ferrari 250 GTO Offered For Sale – RM Auctions

RM Auctions announced that it is representing the 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO (chassis no. 4675 GT) for private treaty sale.

The 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO (chassis no. 4675 GT) is one of only 36 250 GTOs originally produced and one of a limited few with Series II GTO bodywork. In addition to being considered one of the most beautiful cars ever built by Ferrari, the GTO was tremendously successful in competition, securing multiple World Championships for the Modenese car builder.

In April 1963, 4675 GT left the factory finished in Rosso Cina. It was raced by such drivers as Guido Fossati, Jean Guichet, Oddone Sigala, Vincenzo Nember and Luigi Taramazzo and proved itself a tremendously capable racing car, rarely finishing outside the top three in its class and achieving numerous race wins. It participated in the full range of competitive events, including hillclimbs, endurance races and rallies.

The present owner acquired 4675 GT in 1996, and has maintained it in his exceptional, world-renowned Japanese collection ever since. Most recently 4675 GT has participated in the ultra-private events reserved only for GTO owners, namely the 35th and 45th GTO Anniversary Tours in France and California.

“The Ferrari GTO is unquestionably one of the most iconic and coveted cars in the world,” says Max Girardo, Managing Director of RM Europe. “This is truly a rare occasion for collectors to acquire such an important piece of automotive history and we are pleased to be chosen by 4675 GT’s current custodian to represent it on the open market.”

In addition to its motor car auction results around the globe, including the sale of seven of the top 10 Ferraris ever sold at auction, RM generates an average of $50 million in private treaty transactions year over year.

  1. Great! That’s one terrific looking car. It adds to the rich ferrari 250 gto history. I saw the series 2 body style at Monterey on the racetrack. It was stunning. It has the lines of the ferrari 250 lm. Whoever buys it will own one of the coolest cars on the planet. Maybe Ralph Lauren will.

  2. Wow!!!

    From $50,000 in the late seventies to $300,000 in the early Eighties (where we’d see GTOs DRIVE on PUBLIC roads to Prancing Horse Farms events) to
    $25,000,000

    It’s almost as if Ferrari can print dollars faster than the Federal Government!

  3. In Cavallino April-May 1989 No.50,referring to his Ferrari 250 GTO 64, Pierre Bardinon said,”If I could keep one,it would be this one.” The car has several GT class wins to its credit. He’s talking about his Ferrari 250 GTO 64 Number 5573 GT,the collector’s favorite,above even his Ferrari 330 P4.
