Le Mans-Winning 1962 Ferrari 330 Sells At Auction For Over $9 Million, Sets New Record Price!

The record for car sold at auction was set earlier this year at the Barrett-Jackson auction out in Scottsdale for a 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 "Super Snake." That car was Carroll Shelby's personal vehicle, demanding top dollar and getting it, with the winning bid hitting $5.5 million. Did we call that the record? Oh wait, that was the old record. The new record? That was apparently set over the weekend at Sotheby's where some anonymous Swiss businessman paid $9.275 million for the 1962 Ferrari 330 TRI/LM Spyder, chassis number 0808. It's the only 4-liter Testa Rossa built, it also is the last Testa Rossa and the last front-engined sports racing car built by Ferrari. Oh yeah, and this happens to be the same chassis that won the Le Mans in 1962. Ok, so it's got a pedigree, we'll give them that — but are the seats shimmering with Carroll Shelby's butt sweat? Didn't think so. [Hat tip to Juan!]
