Worlds most expensive cars

Post by peterc » Tue Feb 27, 2018 10:59 am

Just been watching a recording of Channel 14 - More 4 ( 10.00 pm last night , Monday 26th ) a programme ‘Worlds most expensive cars’
I didn’t expect much but it just happened to have a couple of original 289’s and a GT40 that a guy in the states was thinking of selling at auction at Monterey.
The 289 wasn’t a slab side as it had its wheel arches extended and the exhausts were like a 427SC. It sold for $880,000.
The 289 FIA and the GT 40 both failed to meet their reserve. The bidding on the FIA went to $1,450,000 and the GT40 got up to $2.6 million.
The owner was expecting $2.6 million for the FIA and $3.5-4million for the GT40.
You could try watching on catch up.
