The passion for old cars beats everything else and if you can afford to spend more than 16 million dollars to fulfill your dream than nothing else matters.

The Pebble Beach Gooding & Co. auction this year was the host of a Ferrari Testa Rossa prototype, assembled in 1957, which completed the Le Mans 24-hour race. The Italian supercar managed to surpass all expectations and found a new owner for the price of 16.39 million dollars, becoming the most expensive car ever.

“This model won almost all races between 1957 and 1963. It is an iconic car and an iconic design”, said Ferrari historian, Marcel Massini.

Participating in endurance races as well, the 1957 made Ferrari is equipped with a V12, and comes with an extra engine, just in case its new owner puts it on the track and not in a museum.

The 1957 Ferrari Testa Rossa prototype has changed only two owners in 40 years and it’s the best example that passion doesn’t have a price.
