  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Ex–Stirling Moss Ferrari Is the Second-Most-Expensive Car Ever to Sell at Auction

Recommended Posts

Sterling Moss Ferrari at Artcurial

-

A 1957 Ferrari 335S Spider once raced by Sir Stirling Moss brought $35.8 million at the Artcurial auction at the Retromobile event in France, making it the second-most-expensive car ever to sell at auction. That is, if you’re measuring in dollars.

The Retromobile car sold for 32.075 million euros, which translates to $35.8 million. The most-expensive car to sell at auction was a 1962/63 Ferrari 250GTO sold by Bonhams at the 2014 Quail auction in California, which netted $38,115,000. However, if you look at that California sale based on the then-current exchange rate, it was only 28.5 million euros. (The dollar has appreciated against the Euro since then.)

This 1957 Ferrari 335S Spider took the checkered flag at the 1958 Cuba Grand Prix, with Moss at the wheel. This car’s other notable competition drivers include Peter Collins, Wolfgang von Trips, Mike Hawthorn, Masten Gregory, and Luigi Musso. This is not the first car with Stirling Moss provenance to flirt with the “most expensive” title. In 2012, a Ferrari 250GTO sold for $35 million in a private sale, in what was then considered to be the highest price ever paid for an automobile. That car was built for Moss, but an injury prevented him from racing it; it was driven instead by Innes Ireland and Masten Gregory in the 1962 24 Hours of Le Mans. More recently, a 1956 Ferrari 290MM driven by Juan Manuel Fangio brought $28.05 million at an RM auction in New York City in December.
