    the sellers absolutely do not want the world to know the price

    ...and yet the sellers of 4153GT will have benefited hugely from the hype in the market perpetuated by the transparency and claims of mega prices in previous GTO sales. In the absence of that transparency the market would not be what it is today and they would not have achieved the undoubted high price they will have received.

    I'm sure there is government paperwork with sales price just like home sales somewhere, but not as public and may require some PI like credentials. Looking up car registration info for plates, addresses, sales price for tax, etc. I've never done that as it doesn't matter to me but there likely is a way if someone really cares.

    While not official confirmation, insider information from Marcel and others who are privy to the sale has revealed in this and the other threads that the price was somewhere in the $65 - 70 mm US range. That's enough to be quotable.

    That's close enough for people. I never understood why some what to know the exact amount. A ballpark estimate is more than enough. Thanks.

    I missed seeing that car at Simeone by a couple months. I was there in late 2016 hoping to see it, but apparently it was in Nashville at that time and then next seen at ATL on a pallet flying out to the UK. I love blue Ferraris...probably my favorite GTO just based on photos. I was surprised at how long it was listed for sale/consignment and it sold for in the $40s I think...bargain imo compared to some paintings that have gone for similar or more.

    Great video of 250 GTO 3445GT at Villa d'Este, 2018.

    Nice article but you might like to edit it regarding your naming of the owner of 3413GT. You initially correctly named him as Dr. Greg Whitten but later referred to him as Whitman. Also you need to do some more research regarding you stating there were 3 330 GTOs. There were only 2 330 engined cars with the 250 GTO style body - 330 LM 3765LM and 400 Superamerica 4561SA.

    Hi Steve,

    I have often thought of 4561 SA as 'the world's most valuable Superamerica'. However, in a previous conversation with Dyke he stated that the build sheets for 4561 SA indicate that it is in fact the 2nd 330 LM (3765 LM being the first).
    I know... different chassis (longer). But apparently the Ferrari factory had different ideas than mine about what things ought to be called. ;)

    Ah yes, I remember now you writing something before about this. Dyke did say 4561SA has Watts Linkage whereas the Superamerica chassis does not. He said more to come.

    Thanks for the correction. What body style did the third 330 engine one have, (not 3765 or 4561SA)

    There wasn't a 3rd one with a 330 engine. 3673SA was claimed to be but that is not the case, being a 400 Superamerica with a SWB Berlinetta body.

    Barchetta said that #3729GT has a new engine installed from Ferrari Classiche.
    Today I was told that this is not true - so, who`s who in the zoo?

    And: was there any GTO that received in period a new motor from the factory?

    I can not say about now, but for sure in 2012 the car had a Classiche block. Don't know about engine. Sorry about the appalling pictures.
