A 1962 Ferrari GTO being offered for $63 million on a German website is being called a contender for the world's most expensive car by some
But it's likely the world's most expensive fake.
News outlets have gone crazy for the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO that's for sale on mobile.de, which is like Germany's eBay for used cars. A story picked up by Fox News said the car "is one of the first of the 39 250 GTOs to have left Ferrari's factory."
GTOs have sold in private sales for more than $50 million. But the world's leading Ferrari historian and collectible-Ferrari expert Marcel Massini said the car offered on mobile.de is a replica. He has photos and detailed histories of each of the real 39 250 GTOs that Ferrari made, and he knows where all of them are parked.
This car, he said, is not one of them.
