This Ferrari 412P Berlinetta has just become the fourth most expensive car ever sold at auction.
One of two 412Ps ever made, the Ferrari got an incredible amount of attention when it went up for auction at The Quail today.
To give you an idea of how much this car went for, bidding opened at $27 million and went up from there.
Over 1000 people filed into the room when the 412P went up for auction with Bonhams at the Quail Lodge & Golf Club.
Before being listed, this iconic racing car underwent an exhaustive nine-year restoration.
The owner wanted to make sure it was not only restored to its former glory but was also fighting fit for the road.
It was also restored to honor its rich racing history, which included winning the 1968 Nuremberg 200km and Swedish Grand Prix.
So, what did this iconic Ferrari fetch when the hammer fell?
One lucky buyer with incredibly deep pockets just dropped more than $30 million on it.
$30,255,000 to be exact.
As a result, the Ferrari 412P Berlinetta knocked the Ferrari 335S off its spot as the fourth most expensive car ever sold at auction.
Currently, the most expensive car sold at auction is the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR ‘Uhlenhaut Coupe’, which sold for a whopping $142 million last year.
That’s followed by the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO at $48.5 million, the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO at $38 million, and now the 412P Berlinetta at $30 million.
There’s no doubt Ferrari is well-represented on that list.
Speaking of insane amounts of money, this burnt-out shell of a Ferrari just sold for seven figures (pictured above).
This piece of crumpled metal was once an ultra-rare 1954 Ferrari Mondial Spider.
And it just crossed the auction block for $1.875 million during Monterey Car Week.
