There is no such thing as a cheap Ferrari – even at its lowest point in the 1980s there were few cars more pricey than a Ferrari. But there are degrees of expense. In August 2002 RM Auctions in California sold a 1962 Ferrari 330 Testa Rossa for a record $6,490,000 – making it the most expensive Ferrari sold at auction. Clearly it is not just any old Ferrari. “The most famous ‘one-off’ in Ferrari history, which won Le Mans in 1962,” is how Cavallino magazine, a publication devoted solely to Ferraris, described this car in 1989. It was restored to its 1962 Le Mans configuration by the French Ferrari collector Pierre Bardinon in 1974. RM Auctions described it in the catalog as “simply the most important Ferrari ever offered for public sale”.
