Real-world version of Stinger GT hits record auction sale, $38 mi

Recommended Posts

http://www.autoblog.com/2014/08/15/1962-ferrari-250-gto-38-million-monterey-2014/

 

Yep, the gorgeous 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, which basically IS the Stinger GT, recently sold at auction for $38 million and became the most expensive automotive auction sale in history so far. Apparently some Ferrari people were hoping it would actually go up to $60 million, but at those prices, what's another $22 million? Pocket change.

 

Some pics of the GTO:

I really love the Stinger GT in GTAV, so this caught my eye the instant I saw the big news.

I think it's crazy how anyone would pay that much for a used race that'll probably never be driven again. Rich people.

 

Edit: Makes me want to buy another Stinger GT.

Simply don't get why old things cost a a lot when theres already better versions of those things and cheaper. I do get that paintings are unique an it's art. But cars and other sh*t? Please.

The looks and the history is priceless and it's got that charm modern cars, even supercars fails to deliver

There's no modern Ferrari out right now that's better than that car, the 19th 250 GTO of only 39 made. If you're not even that crazy about cars then you will never understand so please don't even touch on it. And you're completely oblivious of all of the factors that play a role in the decision of the car's price.

Really? That much for a piece of metal and plastic?

I understand all about unique cars, and classic cars and why some reach a big price, basically it's a race who wants it more, and those people who buy them are just looking for some way to outshine the other guy by throwing money away, but in the end it's definitely not worth the price.

But, some rich guys got to have fun for a bit, and one of them gets to brag about it I guess.

You are like someone looking at a van Gogh saying "really, that much value to a piece of cloth with dried up paint on it"? I also doubt the 250 GTO has any plastic in it.

 

It's not worth the price for anyone who has to be responsible with their money. For people with a few hundred million or billions who'd need a hundred lifetimes to spend it all it is an investment that is very solid in value. It is worth this kind of money, because it is a piece of art.

$38 MILLION for that peiuce of trash?

rws.gif

 

I can just buy a replica version of it for like $40,000 instead lol.

 

Better yet buy a replica lambourghini from a legit seller for like $35,000-$40,000 instead lol

 

Or I could buy a real saleen s7 for like $500,000 and get way more attention that that peice of trash.

I so badly wonder what Fantomtron drives. I bet he's one of the few people for who others turn Fierro's and MR2's into cardboard supercars.

And yes, that applies to Van Gogh too, or any other art piece. We give something a certain value, it's not intrinsic to an object. Show Mona Lisa to an average European who knows what it is, and he'll tell you it's worth hundreds of millions. Show it to a villager who survives by farming and isn't exposed to such things, and he'll tell you a sack of potatos is more worthy to him then that painting that he can't do nothing with but maybe use to make a fire to cook his meal on.

So don't take it personally and understand that we as society create certain perceptions, but never forget that it means nothing to people who aren't exposed to the same things we are.

Ezza.

To those saying "it's just a hunk of metal" or "I could buy a replica for 40k" you just don't understand it.

 

You're not paying for the car, you're paying for the history. This particular 250 GTO became iconic after achieving success at numerous prestigious races such as Sebring 24 hour race, Daytona. This is probably the reason why the 250 GTO is considered as the most valuable car of all time. Each 250 GTO is different from the next. Each one is unique.

 

Not to mention the power, the 250 GTO produces something like 300 hp and a sound unlike any other car.

Do you really think that the replica is as good as the real version of it? Replica's are sh*t.

I'd rather drive a Fiat Panda instead of a replica Lambo or other replica.

The amount of stupidity and ignorance in this thread is killing me. A replica is better than the real thing? The 250 GTO supposedly has plastic? Rich people love to brag about these cars and that's the only reason why they buy them? What next, must I ask?

Every true car lover is considering killing themselves after reading some of the sh*t in this thread.

 

 

but On Topic, the 250GTO isn't really close to a Stinger GT. The shape is too far different to be a 250GTO. The tail lights are, but the rest isn't imo.

Even hunter gatherers have a sense of beauty and thus of art. Even prehistoric peoples and some animals decorate. Art is inbedded in human nature. But off course it is also culture relative.

 

There is no such thing as 'intrinsic value'. All value is subjective to certain individuals. Some people would not value the sack of potatoes or any other food for that matter, because they do not value life. Suicidal people..
