Eh, I'd rather have the Million Dollar Cuda, but both are overpriced.

While I understand this car's beauty, pedigree, rarity etc & the fact some really, really, really rich person IS going to buy it... I just think $60 MILLION for a car... Things are just getting stupidly ridiculous.... 😁😝

Fabrizio Violati's car. A photo of that car is the box art and decals for a Protar release of their 250 GTO. I don't know if the model is that exact car.

That's an insane amount of money for a car. It's probably one of the most beautiful cars ever built, but someone out there has more money than sense.

Nick Mason, Pink Floyd's drummer, bought his in 1977 for $57.000. His friends thought he was crazy spending that much on a used car.

I'll have to check my references at home to be sure but I'm almost certain that this car,along with all the other 250 GTOs, has been crashed at least once in it's life.Some were wrecked so badly that everything but the serial number plate was thrown away and a new vehicle was built underneath it.

Lovely car. One of my favorites. I still need a decent, reasonably price, and not too complicated to build, 1/25th (or 1/24th) scale model kit of this car. I don't understand why this car is not offered in kit fom by somebody like Revell.

It is:

And the Fujimi one is a fantastic kit, too:

I'm not sure I'd have one at $60m., but $60 seems OK...

 

bestest,

I was thinking the same thing.

 

If I wanted to spend stupid money on a Ferrari, I'd much rather have this one.

Similar... but I agree yours is a lot better looking. Nice rake to the windshield, etc.

Those are awesome-lookin' as well, and as I was reading the replies that car came to mind as well along with Charlie

It's all in the eyes and mind of the beholder.  If I had a gazillion $$$, I would go for it.  And the E-type, and the ragtop 'Cuda, and the Cobra Daytona...
